The congregation has a strong commitment to taking help to those who need it.
For many years our congregation has focussed external fundraising on its Easter Appeal for local charities, its Christmas appeal for Christian Aid and on the house to house collection during Christian Aid Week. Last year our total contribution to Christian Aid was over £21,000.
We also offered our first “reverse Advent Calendar”, when the congregation and the local community donated a great deal of food for local homelessness charities.
We have a strong Help the Homeless Group, donating food to hostels, equipment to Fresh Start and taking part in the Edinburgh Night Shelter.
The Greenbank Guild holds a fundraiser each year, the proceeds going to one of the nationally supported Guild charities. In the past year £1,000 was raised for Female Genital Mutilation prevention work and Caring for Mother Earth. The Work Party knit items to give to various charities.
