“The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate Gods love in a tangible way to needy children around the world”

Samaritans Purse International Relief UK


Since 1990, more than 113 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced Gods love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritans Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Operation Christmas Child

Many, many thanks to all those from Fathers House Shaftesbury who took time to fill a shoebox with Christmas gifts this year. We collected 61 boxes, which were picked up on Sunday 16th November to begin their journey. We were told that they are going to Eastern Europe this year ‘as we are very good at sending hats and scarves’! Well done everyone!
