SamaritansPurseOperationChristmasChildOperation Christmas Child (OCC) is an initiative of the Christian relief and development agency Samaritan's Purse.  They have been blessing, proclaiming and demonstrating the love of God to underpriviledged children around the world, since 1990, with gift-filled shoeboxes wrapped and packed by children and adults in the UK.

It's a campaign that each year attracts thousands of local churches from across the denominational spectrum to get involved between the months of September - November.  In fact, it is now the UK's largest children's Christmas appeal.  In 2012, 1.1million shoeboxes filled with gifts and goodies were sent to children who need them most in some of the toughest parts of the world.


If you would like to donate any gifts and goodies for the shoeboxes, please bring appropriate items as suggested under the OCC gift guidelines to the church on Sunday mornings:
Before or after the service (9.30-10.30am or 12.15-1.15pm) during Sept, Oct & Nov 2018.
