Operation Christmas child
Chase Family Church, Enfield supports Operation Christmas Child. Pat Chilton of Potters Bar is the driving force for this activity within Chase, each year she coordinates the filling and collection of shoe boxes and gifts from the church.
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is an initiative of Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian relief and development agency working amongst communities in need in 18 countries across Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Samaritans Purse do more than just send shoeboxes overseas. They respond in a distinctly Christian way to issues facing people in the places where they work: issues like water and sanitation, HIV and AIDS, sustainable livelihoods along with disasters and emergencies. They choose to work through the local Church - seeing it as God’s chosen instrument to bring hope to a hurting world.
