Flesh and Blood

The Church of England is backing a groundbreaking new campaign was launched today specifically calling on the church to increase the number of blood and organ donors in the UK.

The Rt Rev James Newcome is Lead Bishop on Healthcare for the Church of England and Chair of the National Stewardship Committee. Bishop James says, “fleshandblood is an exciting opportunity for the church. Christians have a mandate to heal, motivated by compassion, mercy, knowledge and ability. Extending our understanding of the central Christian themes of generosity and stewardship to include blood and organ donation has the potential to tangibly transform the giver and the receiver. The benefit to others is not only life enhancing but can mean the difference between life and death.” 

fleshandblood.org is a hub of free resources, stories and media: providing information and practical ideas for churches and communities to engage with the campaign.
