The Benefice of Swanwick and Pentrich
St Andrew's and St Matthew's


Seeking a Fairer Society Throughout the World


Christians are at the forefront of campaigning for a fairer and more just world.

St Andrew's and St Matthew's support Jill Ball who works for the Church Mission Society to support disadvantaged children and abused women in Ecuador through the Life in Abundance Trust.

Throughout the year we also support other charities, for instance at Harvest 2011 we supported the Cathedral Relief Service which works in the slums of Calcutta to improve health and education opportunities through the Bishop of Derby's appeal.

At the end of the year we give a substantial amount of our income to support charities working locally, nationally and internationally.

Individual members of our congregation support many other organisations, which work to promote justice and equity throughout the world and support the disadvantaged.
