BURC in the wider community

Our Mission Committee oversees this area of our mission:

  • Spring and Autumn (Harvest) meetings with a guest speaker;
  • Monthly ‘Minute for Mission’ talks on the 4th Sunday of the month highlight the charity that receives the following month’s communion offertory;
  • Twice-monthly Traidcraft stall provides the opportunity to support the fair-trade movement through purchase of Fairtrade goods;
  • Support for URC’s ‘Commitment for Life’ Zimbabwe programme;
  • Church-wide donations for ‘emergency’ collections for world disasters;
  • Year-long appeal for child-focused charity, eg Smile, ‘Shelterboxes’;
  • Support at Christmas for Operation Christmas Child.  Operation Christmas Child logo

We are also affiliated to ‘Interfaith Dorset Education and Action’ (IDEA), that supports action on ecological issues.
