2021 Christmas Appeal – BWA Afghanistan Crisis
Our Christmas Appeal for 2021 is to raise funds in support of the Afghanistan Crisis. Decades of a refugee crisis have resulted in nearly six million Afghans forcibly displaced from their homes. TheTaliban’s recent takeover of the government has severely compounded the crisis., forcing hundreds of thousands to flee from their homes and tens of thousands in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Baptist World Aids response is to meet the immediate needs of displaced families in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Our local Christian partners are poised to provide critically needed emergency supplies including monthly food aid, blankets, mattresses and plastic sheets for winter protection.
390.000+ people displaced since May 2021
80% are women and children – the majority of those fleeing are the most vulnerable and at risk.
Covid 19 has compounded the crisis by overwhelming the already fragile health system.
Please prayerfully consider what you might be able to give to help this crucial work.

Welcome back to Kids Church Online. In term 3, whether we are online or in person we exploring stories where God does much much more than people ask or imagine. God can do that for us today too!
Bible Story – The Walls of Jericho
Today’s story is found in Joshua 6:1-23
God’s people had crossed the big river and now they were in the land God had promised to give them. But there was a big city with big walls – Jericho. Most people in the city (except Rahab) were not happy to see God’s people. What would God do?
Questions to Discuss
1. How would you have felt walking around the city for seven days in a row?
2. God chose an imaginative way to defeat the city of Jericho. Why do you think he did it this way?
3. Is it difficult for you to believe that God’s plan for your life is bigger than anything you can imagine? Why or why not?

21 Days of Prayer
During this time we will be praying for what God has done, is doing and will do in the future for our church. There will be updates on Facebook and SMS and in the bulletin with ideas for things to pray for.
We’d love kids to be involved praying too. Hopefully you received some ideas for praying in the mail this week – but if you’re still waiting a grown up in your family can check our Facebook page.
This week we are praying for the present. We’re praying for our church right now – during lockdown. Grab some strings, make a plait and pray that our church will be united by the Holy Spirit even though we are far apart. Pray that God will use all the things that are different about us to be part of his church.
