THE Minster, in Ilminster, is holding a united service for all denominations to start National Christian Aid Week from May 13-19.

The service, at 10.30am on May 13, will be led by the Rev Geoff Hays and Dr Elizabeth Perry will preach.

All are welcome to join the service and a bread and cheese lunch in the Minster Rooms afterwards.

There will be a house-to-house collection throughout the week to raise money for Christian Aid, which works in more than 50 of the world's poorest countries.
