Each year from early November, the church sell hundreds of Christmas cards for charities, through the Cards for Good Causes shop in the Church. At least 70p in the pound goes to the charities – out of which they pay for the production and distribution of their cards and any VAT (see below).
The shop offers around 300 designs on behalf of more than 30 charities, so no one in Chiswick needs go far to enjoy a huge choice. It forms an important part of the church’s outreach to the local community, bringing many people into the church for the first time. Providing a space for Cards for Good Causes also enables charitable giving for the whole community.
The shop also sells Advent calendars, a range of gifts and stocking-fillers, and everything needed to wrap Christmas parcels. We ask customers to bring their own shopping bag – as part of our Green Christmas campaign, supported by St Michael’s and Cards for Good Causes, we encourage recycling and the use of fewer plastic bags! The shop is managed and staffed by volunteers from the church.
