Mission Support

In the parish we support several charities and organisations.

Welcome Centre: Every week we send food/toiletries donations to the Welcome Centre in Huddersfield.

Christian Aid: Every year we have collections in both churches and hold a street collection in Honley on a Saturday in May.

Children's Society: Every year both the church schools in Honley come to St Mary's for a Christingle service where the collection is given to the Children's Society. We also have a collection box system where approximately two dozen people have a money box in their home where they collect small change specifically for the Children's Society.

Honley Aid in Sickness: We hold an annual Lent Lunch in St Mary's Church where soup, dessert and coffee are served and all the money raised goes to Honley Aid in Sickness.

Operation Christmas Child: Every year we fill and collect shoe boxes for the annual Operation Christmas Child appeal.

The PCC sets aside a sum of money each year which it shares between three organisations, a local one, a national one and an international one in order to support mission and ministry in various places.
