Charity and civic involvement: act locally and globally

The Oxford Gatehouse and the Oxford Winter Night Shelter

In Michaelmas and Hilary Terms, the Chapel collection and other fund-raising activities go to support the work of the Oxford Gatehouse and the Oxford Winter Night Shelter (OWNS). Both are locally-based charities, providing food, shelter and company for homeless people. From January to March each year, OWNS provides overnight accommodation. 

Both charities are always looking for people who can commit a few hours a month. Find out how you can help at the Oxford Gatehouse and the  Oxford Winter Night Shelter.

Christian Aid

During Trinity term each year, Christian Aid Week takes place. At this time, we focus our attention on issues of global poverty and donate the Chapel collection to support CA's work.

Christian Aid was set up and is sponsored by an ecumenical range of UK churches. Its work is motivated by a vision that social justice is core to the Christian Gospel, and it's one of the UK’s most respected relief and development agencies.

The money it raises goes where it is needed, working in partnership with local people, regardless of nationality or faith.

Want to help out?

Ask the Chaplain how you can get involved with local voluntary organisations. Also, if you have suggestions around diversity, inclusivity, religious literacy, interfaith conversations, and the arts, do please reach out to the Chaplain.
