Bishop's Lent Appeal 2023

St Nicholas Seminary

Closing date: 21 February 2025



Raised out of £10000 target


Including Gift Aid: £ 6936.53

Raised offline: £ 0



Each year, congregations in the Diocese of Edinburgh donate to the Bishops Lent Appeal. This year the appeal is raising money towards a Water Filtration project for St Nicholas’ Seminary in Cape Coast, Ghana - our partner diocese - which is a wonderful example of self-help. 

The cost-of-living crisis is hitting many of us hard just now, but I hope, nevertheless, that by pooling our generosity we may help to sustain the life of a church, far away in geographical terms, but close to us within the life of Christ. A comparatively small amount of money (for us) can make a big difference for the life of the church in West Africa
