Christian Aid Sale

Appeal for the 2017 Christian Aid Sale

Donations can be dropped off at the church in George Street – we’re open 9am-9pm Monday – Friday, and 9am-6pm on Saturday. Our vestibule team will help you unload. We don’t accept donations on Sunday, and don’t accept donations to the 2017 Sale after Wednesday 10 May. This allows us time to sort, price and display goods properly.

The church is open to receive donation of goods from Monday 1 May – Wednesday 10 May 2017

The Christian Aid Book Sale at St Andrew’s and St George’s West

Since it started in 1974 the Sale has raised over £2m for Christian Aid’s work to end poverty.

Over 500 volunteer helpers from Edinburgh and beyond work together to create the biggest fundraising event in the UK for Christian Aid. The Sale is held annually, in May, in Christian Aid Week when thousands of churches and individuals throughout the UK devote the week to fundraising for Christian Aid to tackle poverty, and the causes of poverty,  throughout the world.

100,000 books of every kind fill the Sanctuary and both courtyards. But there’s much more than books … upstairs in the gallery you’ll find sheet music (and more books!) downstairs in the Undercroft Café you’ll find a gallery of pictures as well as delicious homebaking and food to sustain you. Head through to the Davidson Room hidden at the back of the church and you’ll find a treasure store of antiques and collectables. And did we mention toys, records, stamps, postcards and ephemera?
