It is the policy of our parish to give away at least 5% of all collections to charity:
Matthew 6:19-21 "Don't store up treasures here on earth, where they can be eaten by moths and get rusty, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where they will never become moth-eaten or rusty and where they will be safe from thieves. Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be."
Our Church family currently supports the following charities:-
Wycombe Homeless Connection
You could say we fight injustice. Or you could say we help individuals overcome the housing shortage, the unintended consequences of government policies, unwise life choices, poverty, poor health, bad upbringing, complex bureaucracy … it’s quite a list.
Either way: with the help of a small dedicated staff and an army of local volunteers, we help homeless people overcome the obstacles they face in finding or keeping accommodation and achieving stability.
We believe that every homeless individual in High Wycombe has worth and should have the chance of a fresh start, no matter what their situation. That’s why we treat every homeless person we meet with dignity and respect, and our staff and volunteers go the second mile to provide support. Our work is built on the support of the local community.
We focus on those who do not qualify for housing help from the council.
The project brings together school, church and
community by using the entire school to produce its very own pop album.
Typically, it takes four days to learn and record the songs, then a week later
the children perform them at a concert held at the local church. This is a
fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the children through a
wonderful live performance.
