St Andrews

Shoeboxes!

Article text
For many years St Andrew's has contributed shoe-box gifts to Drop-Inn Ministries mission to the children and young people of southern Belarus, an area still blighted by the Chernobyl Disaster of 1986.

Members of the congregation fill small boxes with huge amounts of love... and practical stuff (like toothbrushes, soap, underwear, hats and scarves) and slightly less practical stuff like pencils, notebooks, and small toys.

Then, on a Sunday in October we bring them to church to begin their journey.

This year there were 70+ boxed filled with practical love.
