Supported Organisations

We support the West End Refugee Service (WERS) in Newcastle,
giving of our own resources, household goods, furnishing, clothes and perhaps
ornaments or pictures, those little extras that turn a house into a home.

Both WERS and Victims of Violence in our own city are offered provisions at Harvest
and toys, toiletries, books and chocolate at Christmas.

We support the Carlisle Foodbank with regular collections of food
each Sunday and special collections at Harvest and Christmas and
contribute to special appeals in money and in kind
as they arise following Christ’s teaching.

We support Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.
Members each contribute a shoebox full of simple gifts,
some of them handmade, for children.  These are then sent to
countries where children have very little.

Carlisle is a Fairtrade City and we are a Fairtrade Church
meaning that we use Fairtrade products when possible
to support the Fairtrade Movement and
encourage members to do the same.
The movement exists to improve the trading arrangements
for producers in developing countries.

Local charities are supported by some members
on their own initiative.
Examples are Meals on Wheels and
Hospice and other charity shops.

We support worldwide movements,
particularly
Christian Aid, which seek
to provide for human need wherever it arises and
to influence the rules governing international trade in order
to secure a fairer distribution of the world’s resources
with greater attention to environmental issues.

Christian Aid is supported particularly through Commitment for Life
which is a scheme raising money for key partners in the developing world
through Christian Aid with
Global Justice Now which
used to be the World Development Movement.

The United Reformed Church launched Commitment for Life in 1992.
It was later re-launched with a special focus on the key countries,
India, Palestine, Brazil and Zimbabwe.
St George’s has chosen to focus on Palestine.
