Action for Children Sunday
Action for Children Sunday is designated by the Methodist Church as one of its Special Sundays - a time to reflect on and celebrate the work of its Children's Charity.
It is usually celebrated on the second Sunday in July as this is closest to the anniversary of our founding on 9th July 1869, but the day may be celebrated at another convenient time according to local precedent.
Action for Children Sunday 2013
This year we invite you to use the lectionary readings for the second Sunday in July and, focussing on the parable of the Good Samaritan, share how Action for Children is putting the imperative in the story into pratical action. As well as offering brief reflection on the bible readings, you will also find here some suggested prayers and hymns, and information about our work and campaigns. An Action Pack for children is also available to download:
