A service with Christian Aid Ireland will be broadcast at 11.00am on RTÉ Radio 1 Extra / LW252 and 11.10 a.m on RTÉ One television this Sunday, 2nd May, in advance of Christian Aid Week.

Christian Aid Ireland’s Chief Executive, Rosamond Bennett, will lead the service and the sermon will be delivered by its Chairperson, the Reverend Dr Liz Hughes.

Music will be provided by Ballysillan Presbyterian Church’s worship team.

The theme of the service will be ‘A new song to sing’ with a focus on climate change, which is causing a hunger crisis and driving millions more into poverty in the global south.

The service will include the Christian Aid Week video, telling the story of Florence Muthiani from the Kitui region of Kenya. See photo below.  Here is her story:

Christian Aid’s local partner built a sand dam for Florence and her community, just a short distance from her village in Kenya. With easy access to water, Florence has been able to grow tomatoes, onions, papayas and chillies on her farm. She also manages 10 beehives and sells the honey for cash at the market. Before the sand dam, she would spend eight hours a day collecting water but now she has time to develop her farm business. She has a cow, a donkey, two turkeys as well as some goats and sheep. Florence told us: “I am very happy now. I have strength and power. I have learned to depend on myself.”
