The Children’s Society
Mossley Hill Church has for very many years been a strong supporter of The Children’s Society.
It is the Church of England’s only children’s charity and works with children of all faiths and none.
It is a national charity working to transform the hopes and happiness of young people facing abuse, exploitation and neglect. They support them through their most serious life challenges and campaign tirelessly for the big social changes that will improve the lives of those who need hope most. They’ve been doing this for 140 years and they won’t stop until they’ve built a society where hope is alive in every child. Every young person deserves a good childhood, and that’s why they fight for the hopes and happiness of young people. They see the hope and courage in them everyday and it inspires The Children’s Society to support them through their most serious life challenges, fighting for the hopes and happiness of young people.
In the decade ahead they are determined to make sure this generation of children have a better childhood. They are aiming to build a happier, safer society for young people to grow up in, where they can look forward to their futures with more hope.
Their goal is that by 2030 they will have overturned the damaging decline in children’s well-being, setting a path for long lasting growth.
Our Christingle service takes place on Christmas Eve each year and is a wonderful way to start Christmas as well as an opportunity to raise funds for The Children’s Society
Our church’s Children’s Society representative is Yvonne Watson who will be happy to advise you how you can help, financially or volunteering in other ways. Please contact our church administrator for contact details.
ASYLUM LINK MERSEYSIDE
We have had links to Asylum Link for many years through several of our congregation who volunteer with them. As a church we give regular food donations.
Asylum Link Merseyside is based in St Anne’s presbytery next to St Anne’s Church in Overbury Street, Wavertree. It is a safe space for Asylum Seekers and Refugees, to meet, relax and find out about the community they have been dropped into. They offer a wide range of services which are centred on the principles of Friendship and Welcome.
They provide their services because fundamentally, all humans are equal, and that Asylum Seekers need help to overcome the barriers which prevent them from living in the community as equals.
Asylum Link does not get any funds from the government. It is supported by a variety of trust funds and donations. It needs much more to continue functioning and they depend on donations of money and goods.
