Christian Aid in Norfolk and the East of England


CA logo 2013Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty

Christian Aid has a vision – an end to poverty – and it believes that vision can become a reality. It provides urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes


Our local work involves encouraging and supporting people in Norfolk and across the Eastern Region to engage in giving, prayer and practical actions for the world’s poorest in response to Jesus’ call to proclaim good news to the poor, proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free” (Luke 4:18)

What do we do?

Our partners work in over 40 countries around the world with people affected by hunger, poverty and disasters.  We seek to bring relief and development and to stand up for the rights of people affected.   A few examples include:

Speakers: Our volunteer and staff speakers would love to introduce you to our work and encourage supporters

What churches have told us about their speaker’s visit:

“Our people really enjoyed listening to you… It does help people knowing how and where the money is spent” – Church in Northampton
“Encouraging, engaging, thought-provoking, fun” – Church in North Norfolk
“That putting a Christian Aid envelope through the letterbox of someone’s home may be the first time anything explicitly with ‘Christ’ on it has been received there.  Therefore Christian Aid collectors are in fact ‘ambassadors for the Church’ and the spreading of the gospel” - Church in Suffolk
Inspiring, challenging, helpful, practical” – Church in West Norfolk


“Very flexible in tailoring his input to fit with the service” – Church in Suffolk

“Her greatest strength was her enthusiasm for the subject and her knowledge of the work of Christian Aid… she was very good indeed” – Church in North Norfolk
