Hi <<Preferred Salutation>>, here's your latest 
CrossReach eNews Newsletter.
Pray for me...

As a supporter of CrossReach, we know you care about what happens to the people we serve and work with every day. We also know that the prayers of hundreds of supporters who use the CrossReach prayer diary every day are essential to the success of the work done by CrossReach in Christ's name.

Thank you for this essential prayer support, petitioning the Father for grace, wisdom and power to do what needs done.

We also recognise that, as our supporter, you may also have prayer needs. This is where we want to bless you <<Preferred Salutation>> and pray for you as part of our "Pray for me" initiative for CrossReach's amazing supporters.


To ask our staff team to pray confidentially for you, drop us an email to supporters@crossreach.org.uk  with the Subject of "Pray for me". Please outline what you want us to pray for so we can pray intelligently. While we will respect your confidentiality, we may use your first name when the team are praying for you.

Praise God for answered prayers
It's always encouraging to hear when God answers prayer. Using the same contact details as above, please send us a "Prayer Answered!" email once your prayer is answered so we can rejoice with you and thank God with you.

Thank you for your support.

We look forward to hearing what God will do for you!

Christmas is coming! 

Ok, I know, it's not even Easter yet and here we are mentioning Christmas! There's no rest for our Christmas elves though who are already hard at work choosing this year's Christmas cards and pictures for the Calendars.

One card that we simply cannot do without your input is the Christmas Card Competition card.
Design a Christmas card and send it to us. We will then print the winning Christmas card design AND give the Winner a supply of their printed cards free!

So get designing!

Last year's winner was Aaliyah from Alyth. It could be you this year, but you need to be in it to win it!

"...his face was a picture of delight..."

Elaine, the manager at CrossReach's Perth Prison Visitors’ Support and Advice Centre (PPVSAC) reports that an anonymous person recently donated some Asda Gift Cards for PPVSAC to use at their discretion.

Elaine says “On the same day as we received the Gift Cards, we had someone come in to the Centre who had nothing. Due to various circumstances he was basically starving. The vouchers were so well timed as it meant he could go and buy a few essential food items. His face was a picture of delight that someone would do that for him.”

You too can bring delight to someone’s face and send ASDA or TESCO Gift Cards (for £5 or £10 each please) directly to Perth Prison Visitors Support and Advice Centre at 3 Edinburgh Road, Perth, PH2 8AT. 
You can also donate to the work at PPVSAC HERE.

He is Risen!
Share the joy...

Share the joy of Easter and knowing that Christ is Risen! 

Contribute to the work of CrossReach at the same time!
