Malvern CYC Camp 2016

Malvern CYC Camp 2016 Bookings are now be taken

Saturday 13th August to Saturday 20th August 2016, God Willing

Yet another year has passed us by and the camp leaders are busy making plans, God Willing, for camp this year which is to be held as usual at Dyffryn Ardudwy in West Wales (UK)
The Christadelphians have the exclusive use of a site … with flush toilets and warm showers awaiting you! It is aimed specifically at those aged 11-18 years old that regularly attend Sunday School or CYC. 

Their study theme this year is *The man from Nazareth* and will be a focus on the life of Jesus, with study groups split according to ages. They have already had a good number of bookings but there are still spaces left for any interested in joining them this year.
 The booking and consent form can be downloaded from their ecclesial website at, the password you will need to access the camp page is malvwr14.

The all-inclusive cost (which also includes coach transport to/from camp from either Malvern/Birmingham/Shrewsbury) remains unchanged this year at 105 pounds - full details are on the booking form including details of how to pay online or by cheque. 

They would love to see you if you are able to make it this year, and whilst they can't guarantee the Welsh weather, they can promise you a week of fun and fellowship around God's word with like minded people.

As calls to 0845 numbers are no longer charged at reduced rates the Christadelphian Support Network have changed to a Freephone 0800 number:  0800 9545 099.

Both the Helpline and Prayerline are accessed on the same number, choose option 1 for Helpline and option 2 for Prayerline.

The old 0845 will still be operational during a prolonged transition, a message advises callers of the free 0800 number and that charges will apply if they stay on the 0845 line.

Christadelphian Meal a Day Fund UK : Report for 2015

For Christadelphian Meal a Day Fund UK, the international family of charities founded by the Christadelphians, it looks like 2015 has been a challenging year, with income relatively low through the year until December.
Their total income rose eventually to 666,659 pounds, which was below their long term average and 31% down on a particularly generous 2014. However, with reserves carried forward from last year, they were at their November meeting able to support all their long term projects for 2016, plus during the year a smaller number of very worthy *one off* projects mainly providing clean water.
Currency exchange variations helped the Christadelphian Meal a Day Fund to the tune of a little over 30,000 pounds but this is unlikely to be repeated, as sterling weakens again. Recognising the downward trend in their annual income, and the sharply upward trend in costs in Africa, they will take steps to review and reduce their long term commitments.

Christadelphian Meal a Day Fund spent circa 668,000 pounds across a range of projects which go to support poor communities with clean water, agriculture, primary healthcare and education, plus three orphanages and several special centres for disabled children.
During 2015 they supported over 2700 children altogether, and provided more than 700,000 meals thanks to your continued support. Two-thirds of their spend went to feeding and water projects (33%), and to the Homes and orphanages they support (35%), the rest to education/schools (16%), medical and hygiene projects (9%) and community self help and training (6%).

The Fund continues to put 95p in every pound donated directly to work in these projects, dramatically better than any of the major charities due to the amount of voluntary work undertaken for the charity by its trustees and members, and by CBM UK.
They and we thank all who have helped them in this way. 

The above figures are subject to audit. If you have any questions about CMaD or its finances, or wish to see the final audited accounts, please email bro Stuart Barrett at
