Action Aid:  Coffee is served in the North Aisle of the Church on Saturday mornings between 10.30 and 11.30 approx.  We support Action Aid, in particular family settlements in Kenya.  Through the head office in Somerset money is forwarded to Kenya.  The money has been used to teach the women how to grow their crops, learn beekeeping, look after chickens etc.  Recently we have heard about a workshop being held in a village to raise awareness of female genital mutilation which is widely practised although illegal.  90 girls have now been rescued  from being cut.  We are kept informed regularly by ladies in Kenya letting us know what they have benefitted from, accompanied by a photograph.  These letters and photos are displayed on the Action Aid notice board in church.  For more details click here
