Providing Resources for Christian Discipleship

Annual Bishop’s Appeal 2016

20th Annual Bishops Appeal – May 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

The Board of Trustees of SPCK/USA (The Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge) voted to begin a new initiative supporting the mission and ministry of Episcopalians in Cuba. SPCK’s work has yielded opportunities for hundreds of Cuban children and youth to attend Vacation Bible Schools in poor parishes in Cuba. Working closely with local clergy, and with the knowledge and permission of the Bishop of Cuba, SPCK gives parishes the opportunity to support this worthy cause, Escuelitas de Fé or Little Schools of Faith. SPCK will begin its campaign soon by reaching out to private donors, Episcopal parishes and Episcopal schools all over the country.

We appeal to each of you to join with us and help us spread the word about the ministry of SPCK/USA in your Diocese. Please support the ministry of SPCK/USA during our Annual Bishop’s Appeal with your gift of $100.00 or more. 

Thank you for supporting the work God has given SPCK/USA to do as we “Go forth and carry the Gospel message of hope for the world.”

Faithfully yours,

Richard Hall, Chair & The Board of Trustees

History of SPCK

More than 300 years ago, the Reverend Thomas Bray, an Anglican priest in London, formed the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (SPCK) to “promote learning in the plantations and abroad and to propagate Christian knowledge at home.”
