Operation Christmas Child

Shoebox Gifts

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, a Christian international relief organisation.

The mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies as a means to reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus. These gifts are shipped outside of the UK to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease.


The local collection point is Kings Church in Heathfield (State Hall, Station Road).
