On Sunday, 8 October we welcomed into our worship Sarah Roure, the Head of Christian Aid in Brazil. Sarah spoke passionately to the congregation about Christian Aid’s work in her country and with a twinge of emotion about how much the support offered by congregations global, such as Polwarth, means to her and her team. Sarah met our Christian Aid organiser, Audrey Downie and learned about Polwarth’s support for the charity here at home, which includes presently raising funds and awareness for the vulnerable Rohingya people who desperately need food, water and shelter.
Christian Aid Scotland put a photo of Sarah’s visit to Polwarth on their Twitter feed. It show Jack and Sarah standing prophetically in front of a screen showing an image with the word ‘Compassion’.
