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.
Christmas shoe boxes This year, the Meltham Shoe Box Team will be supporting Teams 4U. If you would like to support, I do have shoe boxes and leaflets available. I am happy to deliver these to you and collect the shoebox when filled. Alternatively, a donation is always welcome.
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.
