Worshippers at St Andrew's, Dearnley on Sunday 10 December can do their bit for prisoners of conscience throughout the world.
After their usual Sunday morning service at 9.30am they will be asked to sign a Christmas card or write a short letter to a prisoner as part of Amnesty International's 'Write for Rights' campaign.
Jo Hill, who worships at the church, is an Amnesty volunteer who works tirelessly for this ongoing campaign, billed as the world's biggest human rights initiative.
"Every card can make a difference," said Jo, who is proud to campaign for a world in which human rights are enjoyed by all.
