The theme “Just another day” was chosen for our tree since for many in East Africa, Christmas Day is indeed just like any other day – water and firewood still need to be collected with little opportunity to celebrate as we do here. The gift tags on the tree draw attention to our Gifts of Life which can be bought to provide an East African community with life-changing practical help such as mosquito nets, garden tools or seeds.
Tunstall and Bredgar Benefice have been great supporters of Fields of Life over the year, inviting us to take part in their series of Lent Lunch Talks and to join their weekly morning prayer times.
Our warm thanks are extended to Rev. Alan Pinnegar and his team.
