Charities We Support
Six charities benefit from our Parish income tithing every year. After receiving congregational suggestions, the PCC voted for two local, two national and two international charities to receive donations over two years, in 2020 and 2021.
Refugee Matters Fareham
This is a local initiative started by Christians Together in Fareham. They will provide Community Sponsorship for a refugee family within this national scheme. There are three main stages:
- Source a suitable & affordable family home.
- Raise a support fund for the chosen refugee family.
- Realise a programme of resettlement support for them.
