Church members and friends may be interested to know the results of our charitable collections at Christmas.

Carol service, December 17th, and Christmas morning: Homeless Oxfordshire £358 (with GA approx. £405) Action for Children £290 (with GA approx. £324)
In addition, we have just sent off our third 'Partner Church' contribution to All We Can for £264, mainly money raised at the two Sunday lunches in December but also individual donations by two members.
Our total of donations to All We Can as a Partner Church, since we started in October, is approximately £901.
We have also just sent off a donation of £63 to Toilet Twinning to acquire our 10th 'Twinned Toilet'.
Thank you to all who have contributed to this charitable giving total of over £1,200.
Not a bad way to start the new year!!
