This week, Sunday 10 May, marks the beginning of Christian Aid Week. Christian Aid’s appeal this year focuses on the charity’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak in the developing world and supporting their Coronavirus Emergency Appeal, with projects working with some of the world's most vulnerable communities in 37 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean (see https://www.christianaid.org.uk/appeals/emergencies/coronavirus-emergenc... for further details of the specific projects and how to donate). Our service this Sunday takes this global perspective, starting with a video message about the effects of Coronavirus from The Most Revd Dr Justin Badi Arama, Archbishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan, with whom we are linked as a diocese. The address is given by David Pain, Salisbury Diocesan Secretary and CEO, and formerly Director of Supporter and Community Partnerships at Christian Aid
