Acts 435: The Charity
Acts 435 is designed to help us fulfil Christ’s calling and give to those in need. I hope and pray that it will be a wonderful blessing to those on the receiving end of these gifts of love. May it also be a source of joy to the donors as they see the immediate impact of their generosity on those struggling to make ends meet.”
Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, Patron of Acts 435
Acts 435 is a Christian Charity to bring immediate help to people in financial need. It works by matching up those who want to give with those in need. The website, which initially served only Yorkshire, went national on 17th August. The site is also on Twitter and Facebook. A great example of the way that social media can offer practical help – this really is a good news story for social media… and all those who’ve been helped by making connections that wouldn’t have happened before.
Acts 4:35 (The Message)
34-35And so it turned out that not a person among them was needy. Those who owned fields or houses sold them and brought the price of the sale to the apostles and made an offering of it. The apostles then distributed it according to each person’s need. (Via @biblegateway)
