Love Christmas

Love Christmas

This Christmas, at St Mary’s we have two opportunities to bless those in need, both locally and internationally. We are partnering with The Besom in Esher to provide Christmas Hampers to people in the local community and Samaritan’s Purse with their Operation Christmas Child to provide great joy to children around the world.

Christmas Hampers

Could you bless a family this Christmas?

This Christmas The Besom in Esher will again deliver hampers to families and individuals in the Elmbridge area who have received the Besom service over the past year.  You can make a difference and help to bring God’s love into their homes.

To find out how your family or church group can make a Christmas hamper to give through The Besom please get in touch by email at [email protected].

Once they hear from you they will forward all the instructions on how to make and fill your hamper.  They will also invite you to join in and deliver the hampers in the early part of December as part of a small experienced team.


The Amazing Journey of a Simple Shoebox Gift Begins With You

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian international relief organisation. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United Kingdom to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease.

Find out how to create a shoebox or build your box online.

All boxes need to be delivered to St Mary’s for collection before Nov 22nd.
