A Service for the start of Christian Aid Week will be held at St Mary’s Church on 12th May at 6pm. Prior to this at 4.30pm there will be an exhibition in The Malthe URC on Sunday 14th May at 4.30pm. RC works alongside the other churches and other organisations in Wirksworth to publicise the work of Christian Aid, to pray for its world-wide outreach, and to raise money to help eliminate poverty. During Christian Aid Week last year £3,600 was raised in this area for which Christian Aid in Wirksworth & District were most grateful.
