Christian Aid, together with many more charitable organisations have launched an appeal to help the people of the Philippines who have experienced the devastating typhoon Haiyan which has recently hit this group of islands.
Thousands of people are feared dead. Hundreds of thousands more have lost their loved ones, their homes and everything they own in the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan.
People are hungry, homeless and afraid.
You are asked to pray for the people of the Philippines and to give generously to the appeal.
A Prayer for the Philippines
Give thanks for those who survived and pray for all the comfort and courage they need
Pray for those who have lost loved ones and for those who have had to witness mass burials
Pray for the 12 million who were in the path of the storm and the millions directly affected
Pray for the emergency response and long-term recovery operation.
A retiring collection raised £65.00 and the church has agreed that half of the money raised at the forthcoming Nativity Exhibition should be donated to the Philippine Typhoon Appeal.
