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 own activities, we are committed to supporting groups and events in the wider community and across the world. We are a Fairtrade church and always use Fairtraide tea, coffee and biscuits after the service on a Sunday. We also have a Fairtrade stall available where members of the congregation can buy a wide variety of food products. Some people buy an item and put it straight into the Foodbank Box, thus supporting two good causes simultaneously. We support various charities during the year e.g. Methodist Homes for the Aged, Action for Children, Christian Aid. From June 2018 for two years we are raising funds for two charities, namely, Helen House which gives care to babies and children suffering from life-limiting conditions - and also a solar panel project for an irrigation system in Nsanje District, Malawi, where crops suffer from drought in one season and flooding in another. The latter is supported by All We Can (formerly Methodist Relief and Development). Information on all our activities can be found on the pages of this website.

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.
