Enfield church teams up with charity to raise money for poverty stricken children
A church has teamed up with a child development charity to help some of the world’s poorest children.
Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Gordon Hill, Enfield, has not only been raising money but encouraged worshippers to sponsor children from some of the most poverty stricken areas of the world after it joined forces with children’s charity Compassion this month.
Pastor David Peters said: “We love the idea of doing more than just giving money. Poverty is about more than just lacking things, it’s about lacking hope for the future, which is why we are encouraging people to give both financial assistance and also to write letters to their children and pray for them.
“There is so much need in the world. It’s great to know that we can do something to make a difference. We are hoping that many children will be sponsored on Sunday.”
Along with hundreds of churches across the county, RCCG devoted its service on Sunday, September 22, to raising awareness of the plight of children around the world.
Compassion CEO Ian Hamilton said: “It’s great to have churches across the country standing up for the rights of children, who cannot speak for themselves. At Compassion we have seen, time and time again, how the influence of a sponsor can help children to see beyond the pain of everyday life and aspire to do great things.”
