Giving to Charity

At Holy Trinity we place great empasis on our partnerships with a number of charities which are close to our hearts including Kisiizi Hospital, Water Aid and Christian Aid. The PCC Charities sub-committee comes together at the start of each year to agree which charities will become each month's "Charity focus". We encourage members from the charitable organisation or from our congregation to talk about the work that each charity does at the Charity Focus service, and in this way we highlight the hard work that all these organisations do to improve the lives of others. 

The amount given to each month's chosen charity is the entire takings from all the services held at Holy Trinity on the second Sunday of each month. Additional contributions can be made to the selected charity at other times of the month by using the blue collecting envelopes that are available in church.

Our chosen charity for March was DrugFAM. Their primary purpose is to provide a lifeline to families, friends and partners affected by someone else’s addiction to drugs and/or alcohol and those who have been bereaved by substance misuse.  Their aim is to ensure that those who turn to them are listened to, understood and supported.  They believe passionately that no-one should struggle with the stigma from a wider society or be left in isolation, fear and ignorance of where to find support.

During April we will be supporting the Bucks Archdeaconry Clergy Charity.  The purpose of this charity is to apply its income and, with discretion, its capital to relieve clergy who are in conditions of need, hardship and distress, who are serving or have served in Buckinghamshire Archdeaconry of the Oxford Diocese, or the widows, widowers, children and orphans of such clergy, with a preference to those resident in the Buckinghamshire Archdeaconry.
