In early December, around 35 people including existing APF supporters and many new contacts attended a fun and informative evening at Holy Innocents’ Church in the Kentish village of Adisham, near Canterbury.

The evening was themed on an African Advent and included a craft sale of items made by women’s projects in Kampala and favourite East African foods like Mandazi (a type of light donut), Kabalagala (a Ugandan pancake made with banana) and African style samosas.

The latest eVitabu video, featuring Victor Turikumwe from Rwanda (click here to watch it now), was premiered and a table quiz introduced the wider work of APF. Around £500 was raised with new regular donors and mailing list contacts signed up.

Could you host a similar event at your church? It could be at any time of the year and we can provide resources and help with publicity. Please make contact as it would be wonderful to replicate this type of simple fundraising function around the UK.

Please pray:

  • Giving thanks for all APF’s generous and committed supporters who pray and give to support effective ministry in Africa.
  • Giving thanks for those who have included APF in their wills and left a legacy for the Church in Africa.
  • That APF will continue to attract new supporters and donors so the charity’s finances are sustainable.
  • That the grant and trust funding applications for APF projects and initiatives in Africa would be successful.
