REEF (REdruth Emergency Fund)
The Redruth Benefice have collected monies to be sent to charities providing emergency relief in disaster hit countries for many years. Since 2016 this has been formalised by allocating for this purpose collections taken at the fifth Sunday Benefice service which brings together our congregations into one church for Sunday worship on four occasions each year.
Since then the following donations have been made:
18 December 2016 Shelterbox £590
12 March 2017 Christian Aid Sudan Appeal £575
10 October 2017 Tear Fund £348
8 August 2018 Disaster Emergency Committee £1,000
In 2017 Christchurch Lanner successfully raised £92,000 to completely replace the church roof. We are so grateful for everyone who contributed to make this possible.
In 2018 we have launched an appeal to refurbish and extend Treleigh Church Community Hall. We think the cost will be about £50,000 and expect that the building work to be carried out during 2019. See the weekly sheet for a various of fund raising events. If you are keen to support this appeal please contact the Rector, Revd Caspar Bush.
