Toy Offering

What is Toy Offering?

Every Christmas Renewal delivers Toy Offering as a way of supporting those at Christmas time who would otherwise have nothing to open on Christmas morning. We partner with organisations, charities and individuals who donate brand new toys, games, crafts and this year, the addition of a pyjama set for each child.

Social Services, Women’s Aid, local schools and other agencies as well as our own staff team refer families in need to the Toy Offering Appeal. When a referral is made, the name, age and gender of each child is recorded to ensure they get age appropriate toys.


Toy Offering 2023 reached 199 families across our Chelmsley Wood, Solihull and Stratford locations, giving out toys to 415 children in total. Thank you for your generosity and making a real difference!


“The Toy Offering gave me opportunity to replace their presents and give them a happy Christmas. The children’s mother cried when she received them. On Christmas Day she explained who the presents were from and both the children cried. In mum’s words “Thank God for the kind people at your church. My children had the Christmas they deserve, thanks to them.”


      “Family were in poverty due to the energy crisis. Mother was choosing to eat little to none to ensure that her children were fed, clothed, and had warmth in the house. Family were supported with food bank vouchers and the children were provided with school uniform.”

Amazon Wish List

You can give through our Amazon Wish List, which will be regularly updated and shuffled to ensure there are no age group gaps. This is the best way to see what we need and to get it delivered directly to Renewal Solihull. These toys will then get distributed across locations, to ensure the grotto is full of age appropriate toys.


Financial Gift

You can give financially through the giving tab. This enables us to shop at The Entertainer where we have an agreed 20% discount on all toys and gifts. This means your giving will go 20% further than if you were to purchase something – this means, we can buy even more toys! It will also mean that we have no gaps in provisions and every child will receive an equal amount.


Toy Offering Sunday

We have our Toy Offering Sunday coming up this year! Bring a toy to the gathering where we will celebrate together and pray for the families who will receive toys. For many, this tradition has become the beginning of the Christmas season. We can’t wait to see all of the toys arriving!

Do you know someone who needs help this Christmas?

We don’t want anyone to struggle this Christmas. If you know someone who may be facing financial hardship or would otherwise go without this Christmas do not hesitate to get in touch. The referral needs to come through an agency or a member of the Renewal church family. The referrer will be contacted with the details of collection and distribution arrangements.

How can you refer a family this Christmas?

Contact and they will be able to put you in touch with the project lead who will share the referral form with you.
