Helping those in Need:
In the Benefice we are strongly connected to many charities, both Local, National and International. There are three that we are particularly linked to within the Benefice:
- The Besom Project: providing a bridge in Witney between those who want to give and those in need
- Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) is a small organisation whose CEO worships with us, supporting local partners in 8 countries with no international attention nor outside help
- Open Doors is an international charity based in Witney which serves persecuted Christians around the world
- The Witney & West Oxfordshire Foodbank. Details of how to get or give help are on their website
- The Witney Food Revolution collects perfectly good food that local businesses would have thrown away, and redistribute it to the public. Details of the scheme are here:
- A helpline has been set up for anyone in Oxfordshire who is struggling at this time. The phone number is 01865 897820 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Lines are open 8.30am to 8.00pm weekdays and 9-5 weekends.
- Witney Land Army volunteering to help those in our community in need.
