Bishop John Armes sponsors a Lent Appeal each year with the funds raised shared equally between two charitable organisations. One at home in Edinburgh and the UK and one elsewhere in the world.
This year’s beneficiaries:
Over the past few years we have contributed to a wide variety of projects such as sewing machines in Papua New Guinea, the work of IJM and of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel.
In our home diocese we have supported Waverley Care and Faith in Older People and St John and the City Defibrillator campaign which has seen defib units hosted and installed across the city for anyone in need to use.
