Call for return of #Jars4Journeys donations

Saturday April 21st 2018

It’s now time now to send on the funds raised through #Jars4Journeys so that Bishops’ Appeal can support three community initiatives building resilience and combatting climate change around the world. 

#Jars4Journeys was a joint Lenten initiative launched by the Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal, Eco-Congregation Ireland and the Representative Church Body of the Church of Ireland (RCB).

Anyone who has raised funds as part of a parish initiative is asked to check if the parish will collect the funds before sending a total on to Bishops’ Appeal.  Otherwise, Bishops’ Appeal is happy to process cheques, bank transfers, bank notes and even jars!

Three projects will be supported:

  • Solar-powered ovens for Amazonian communities adversely affected by climate change in Bolivia (Christian Aid);
  • Conservation farming for self-help groups affected by drought in Ethiopia (Tearfund Ireland); and
  • Tree planting and water harvesting for communities affected by unpredictable rainfall, drought and deforestation in Kenya (Green Belt Movement).

Details for sending in donations can be found here: and donations can still be made online at
