Mission Support

In the parish we support several charities and organisations.

Welcome Centre: Every week we send food/toiletries donations to the Welcome Centre in Huddersfield.

Christian Aid: Every year we have collections in both churches and hold a street collection in Honley on a Saturday in May.

Children's Society: Every year both the church schools in Honley come to St Mary's for a Christingle service where the collection is given to the Children's Society. We also have a collection box system where approximately two dozen people have a money box in their home where they collect small change specifically for the Children's Society.

Honley Aid in Sickness: We hold an annual Lent Lunch in St Mary's Church where soup, dessert and coffee are served and all the money raised goes to Honley Aid in Sickness.

Operation Christmas Child: Every year we fill and collect shoe boxes for the annual Operation Christmas Child appeal.

The PCC sets aside a sum of money each year which it shares between three organisations, a local one, a national one and an international one in order to support mission and ministry in various places.  In 2017 the money was shared between Hand to Mouth Puppets, Church Urban Fund and Mind the Gap Africa.
