ACN North West

Appeals, Talks, Events and much more taking place in North West England

"The Work of Your Hands" flower festival June 2016

The North West Office supports benefactors, parishes, schools and special interest groups in the Archdiocese of Liverpool and the Diocese of Lancaster, Salford, Shrewsbury and Wrexham. Caroline Hull, NW Manager, would be delighted to hear from you at any time.

We are always happy to visit your parish or school to speak about the charity and its work with persecuted Christians; we are also able to provide prayer cards, ACN literature and other support as needed.

Raising funds to provide for our many projects around the world is a central part of our work; the more money we raise, the more people we can help! If your parish, school or special interest group would like to explore the option of working with us to support ACN’s work, please contact our office. We would be delighted to work with you to put together a package of devotional materials, talks or visits and fundraising ideas to meet your needs.

To request and appeal or to find out more information about our work in the region, please contact ACN North West.

Interested in becoming an ACN Parish Representative?
ACN Parish Representatives play a crucial role in helping to raise awareness about ACN and the important work we do to support the suffering Church. It isn’t a hard job and needn’t take up too much of your time, but it is a great way to get a bit more involved with us.

If you or someone you know might be interested in taking on this role in your parish, please get in touch with us to find out more.

Inviting ACN North West into your School
Caroline regularly visits secondary and primary schools to participate in themed Mission Days and run interactive workshops on topics including religious freedom, the current situation in places like Iraq, Syria and Nigeria, Catholic Social Teaching and the Persecuted Church. We have a wide range of resources available for you to use on your own or in conjunction with a visit from us.

Events specifically for secondary schools are offered throughout the year; these Q&A sessions feature input from high profile international visitors and are a great way for young people to learn about life for Christians elsewhere in the world. We are particularly keen to work with schools who wish to fundraise for our work throughout the world and would be delighted to work with you to develop a package of resources to meet the needs of your school. Just get in touch for a chat any time!
