Harvest Offering 2022
Each Autumn St Ebbe's usually partners with two projects, one overseas and another in the UK, particularly seeking to support Christians giving practical help to those in need.
"All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along."
Christian Development Uganda
Christian Development Uganda (CDU) are a Christian Charity with over thirty years of experience working with partners in Uganda seeking to change lives, transform communities and build hope. Working in Kabale and Rubanda districts in South West Uganda, CDU seek to share the Christian faith by enabling local Ugandans in evangelism and development work in rural communities. CDU has a special concern for the neglected Batwa (hunter-gatherer) communities.
CDU partner with Word and Deed (WADU) who employ four full time staff who help the Batwa communities with a holistic Christian ministry. Their unique approach looks on the child as a point of contact to the family, focussing on spiritual upbringing, followed by health and hygiene programmes.
By enabling children to attend school, with a uniform, books, equipment and meals are provided, CDU can deliver health programmes, education, Bible teaching and worship.

Hope Trust Oxford - Christians Against Poverty Debt Centre
The Hope Trust Oxford works in close partnership with St Ebbe’s to run a Christians Against Poverty Centre, which helps those struggling with debt. For the past few years Hope Trust Oxford has employed Kathy Havell who manages the centre and acts as a Debt Coach. As a result of generous giving from the church family THTO have also been able to employ Kirsten Beavan, as a Life Skills Coach.
The centre has been running at full capacity and as we look into the year ahead there is no doubt that there will continue to be a growing need to help those falling into debt amidst the pressures caused by rising food and energy prices. This Harvest Offering will ensure that the CAP Debt Centre can continue to provide help with debt, whilst at the same time taking opportunities to share God’s abundant and compassionate love in dealing with our spiritual debts in Christ.
