Lent Appeal 2017

This year, this month and next, we are again supporting our diocesan partner, Anglican Development Services Mount Kenya through the diocese’s Lent Appeal.

From the Bishop of Chelmsford, the Right Reverend Stephen Cottrell:

The 2017 Lent Appeal will raise funds for two projects – a borehole in the Isiolo region of northern Kenya, and equipment for the maternity wing of the Mount Kenya Hospital which we supported two years ago. You are thus invited to build on the foundations of a previous project, and lay new foundations for future work.

Both projects are being run by Anglican Development Services, with whom we have confidently partnered in previous years.

At this time when we recall the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it brings to mind a call to act, a call of hope, and a call to mission by showing our care for God’s creation. Please give generously to enable our brothers and sisters in Kenya to continue to meet the very real needs of the people they serve in the
name of Christ.

More information is available on the web page for the diocesan appeal here.

Please join us and the whole of the Diocese of Chelmsford in supporting them.
