December Charities

Church members and friends may be interested to know that through your generous donations and other fund raising in December we were able to make very significant donations to charities.

The Christmas Tree Festival raised £727 for Latin Link;

the Christingle service raised £187 for All We Can (MRDF);

the Christmas Carol service and Christmas morning service (with contributions from our friends from Wantage Community Church) raised £440 for Oxford Homeless Pathways and £531 for Action for Children.

Gift Aid will add to these figures.

Thank you all.
