St John, Caversham

St John’s Mothers’ Union have filled 100 shoeboxes with toys, gloves and hats, stationery and hygiene items. With the help of donations from St John’s congregation to pay for the delivery costs, the boxes will be distributed by Samaritan’s Purse, through their “Operation Christmas Child“. The boxes were brought into church and were blessed by Revd John Dudley. They will go to children in countries around the world for whom this could well be their only Christmas present.
