A video marking the 50th anniversary of the Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal for World Aid and Development was presented at our General Synod in Belfast, last May. It includes contributions from those involved in organising the work of Bishops’ Appeal and agencies which have benefitted from its support over many years.

Given the recent and continuing disaster following the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, this might be an appropriate time to reflect again on the valuable work done through Bishops’ Appeal.
