Our faith

We believe and trust in God, who loves us all.

We believe and trust in Jesus, who showed us what love means.

We believe and trust in the Holy Spirit, who helps us to love in return.

Supporting Others

Part of our discipleship is to reach out to others and share God's love and support in any way we can. One of the ways we do this is through our church project, a cause we adopt for usually two years and for which we both raise money and raise awareness of the issues involved. In recent years, these have included:

  • a feeding programme in South Africa;
  • Woodstock Youth Club;
  • the church in Haiti following the devastating earthquake there in 2010, for which we raised £2800 through our donations for coffee and through special fund-raising events;
  • three local charities working with issues of homelessness;
  • ZANE - a charity working in Zimbabwe;
  • the READ project in Odisha, India - one of the partner projects of All We Can.

In May 2016, we changed our charities once more and are currently supporting two UK charities, Dogs for Good and the Oxford-based Asylum Welcome

As well as our church project we continue to support a variety of other charities and causes in all sorts of ways, whether through house-to-house collections, special events (eg. the Christmas Fayre or our annual Quiz Night), collecting boxes, promoting Fairtrade products, food donations or envelopes on a Sunday morning. This year these charities have included Action for Children, Cancer Research, Christian Aid, All We Can (formerly known as the Methodist Relief and Development Fund), Methodist Homes, the North Oxfordshire Community Foodbank and JMA (Junior Mission for All).

Woodstock Methodist Church regularly supports charities through its "church project", a particular cause for which we both raise money and raise awareness, usually for a period of two years.
Woodstock Methodist Church is proud to be a supporter of the Fairtrade movement.
As a church, we are very pleased to be able to support the North Oxfordshire Community Foodbank, along with all the other churches in Woodstock.
