How can we connect you to those in need?
Posted on November 2nd, 2020 at 12:53PM
During the first lockdown season at the beginning of 2020 there was a quick response by many individuals and churches to the changing needs of those in their communities. Churches quickly became integral to the efforts to help those who had found themselves without income, or who were struggling to provide for children who were at home.
Acts 435 played a pivotal role in the Covid-19 response of many churches, seeing a dramatic increase in need. As the need increased we were thankful to have individuals who were willing to directly help, and we received 91% more in donations on the previous period in 2019*. However, during these winter months we anticipate there being more need than ever, and a greater need for those who can, to donate.
As the country goes into a second lockdown inevitably more businesses will be in jeopardy, and the likelihood is that more people will find themselves on a lower income, or no income at all. The increase in need seen previously will become more extensive, especially as people have to heat their homes.
If you're an individual who can meet the needs of those in these situations, please take a look at our website to donate - you can donate any amount, no matter how small, to an individual facing crisis. Take a look at our video below on how your donation can be used to bring hope to those facing dark situations. www.acts435.org.uk/give
If you're a church or local Christian charity, and are seeing an increase in those coming to you for help, then Acts 435 can resource you to meet these needs. Take a look at our Join Us page for more information: www.acts435.org.uk/join
*91% increase in donations in May - October this year, in relation to the same period in 2019.
