For many years, St Ursula's has sought to give generously to support the work of Christ in the world. In practical terms, we aim to give at least a tenth of our income to support charitable causes and missionary activity. We also respond to particular needs through dedicated collections, and our collections at Christmas and Harvest go to Tear Fund (that's The Evangelical Alliance Relief Fund), and in particular to their water project in Uganda, run in conjunction with the Diocese of Kigezi. Our Junior Church also supports this project.

We also give generously to the Bishop's Advent and Lent appeals, which are usually focussed on a specific area where the need is more acute - there are details of these at the relevant seasons on the diocesan website. The current appeal is here.
