The URC Christian Aid Christmas Appeal film

christian aid appealThis Christmas the United Reformed Church is supporting Christian Aid's Christmas appeal that is delivering hope to the thousands of women and children in Kenya who suffer everyday in pregnancy and child birth related issues. From providing maternal healthcare in Kenya to ensuring poor communities receive the vital services we take for granted, your gift will help fund Christian Aid's work to eradicate poverty.

Staff at Church House persuaded the URC moderators of General Assembly – the Revd David Grosch-Miller and Mr John Ellis – to join them in making a festive-themed film promoting the campaign. Please watch it, share it, show it in your churches and, most of all, please donate to the appeal – the government is doubling all money received by 6 February. And, watch the film until the end!

the day I brought my baby home
the sky was full of wonder
gold swans swam on ponds of pearl
and bells pealed out like thunder

I carried him as royalty
and all across the town
great, loud brass-bands of soldiers made
a celebrating sound
and angry boys smiled back at us
great men paused at their lunches
the queen waved from a passing car
buds burst on winter branches
inside our room we could not hear
the music from the park
just a drip, drip, drip from the broken tap
in the kitchen in the dark
me and my Crown-prince in our room
casting his glow of glory
watching comets through chimney-pots
proclaim our story
