The Church has a small committee that carry out thorough research of worthy causes / charities and submit their recommendations to the Parochial Church Council (PCC).
Throughout the year the Church also supports a number of local and national charities such as:
ARE YOU A CHANGEMAKER?
MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD?
As a Church we have a policy of giving to charity from our unrestricted income - this is based on a sum of up to 5%.
We have adopted an annual, 3-year revolving policy when selecting the area where we are to give - the three areas are:
Local charity (Oxford diocese)
National charity (United Kingdom)
Charities for 2024 are:
Christians Against Poverty
Bicester Christian Action
All donations go direct to Christian Aid but will be credited to the fund raising of the Bicester group
God of strength, May your Spirit help us to persevere in our efforts this Christian Aid Week
Thanks you for reading this
