Hold a Sale

Florence and crocheted blanketThis is our supporter Florence from Carlow, who has been sending us the proceeds of the beautiful items (blankets, dolls, teddies) she has been crocheting and selling since 2021. The money has been used to support perscuted Christians in Nigeria for the past three years!

If you have some creative talents, put them to good use by producing some handmade art or crafts and sell them at a school sale, church fête or Christmas market. Or you can ask in your church if you are allowed to set up a stall after a regular Sunday morning service. This can range from knitted or crocheted items, homemade jams and chutneys to hand-drawn birthday cards or paintings.

Another idea is to hold a sale in your front yard or take part in an organised car boot sale. Have separate stalls for different types of items such as ladies’ clothing, men’s clothing, toys, books and bric-a-brac, plants etc.  It is always a good idea to sell refreshments as well!

Contact the Church in Chains office at (01) 282 5393 ahead of the sale and we can supply you with printed material for your stall.
