Christmas hampers

This Christmas we are hoping to reach out practically and show God’s love to those in need locally by making and delivering Christmas hampers.

Would you like to be involved?


Who are they for?

Any families or individuals in our local area who may be unable to afford presents and treats this Christmas. Hampers will be offered to clients at FoodBank, through other local agencies and to anyone you know who would be blessed by a hamper.

How can I be involved?

  1. Most importantly, we’d love you to pray:
    • That hampers will bless those struggling with poverty and loneliness.
    • For the conversations with recipients, that people would be encouraged. - For God to lead us to those who most need this practical help.
  2. Make up a hamper
    • - Maybe from you/ your family/ your life group/ your community - Give some money or items towards a hamper

What are the practicals?

  1. Talk and pray about who you would like to receive your hamper (a single person/ a family/a single parent and children)
  2. Let Jo White know you are making one by filling in this form.
  3. Pack your items in a ‘Christmassy’ box or large bag
    • What to put in: Mince pies, Christmas pudding, Christmas cake, crackers, sweets/chocolates, biscuits, a Christmas card
    • Other items could include: Decorations, small gifts, toiletries, good quality food basics (pasta/rice/tins/tea/coffee), drinks, Christmas fun items (socks/mugs), a gift card
    • Please don’t put in: Home made or fresh food (so that everything will keep), Alcohol (we don’t know personal circumstances)
  4. Lastly - bring your hamper to The Oak on or by Sunday 10 December 2017.

Nearly 13 years ago, we were part of a group of people that helped plant The Oak Church into West Leeds from Mosaic Church, a city centre church in Leeds. We lead in various areas of church life and in the last 2 years have felt God stir us to plant a church. In the last 6 months we have sensed that call being specifically to East Leeds.
