Friends of St Ebbe's Trust

Partnering in the gospel through student ministry in Oxford

What is FoSE?

The Friends of St Ebbe’s Trust (FoSE) was established in 1995 to support the student ministry at St Ebbe’s. The funds raised then were enough to support one full-time student worker (a younger Vaughan Roberts!). By God’s grace, both the student work and FoSE have grown since then.

How can I be involved?

“In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:4-6)

Keep in touch

Sign up to be put on our mailing list. You will then receive a termly newsletter plus occasional other updates.. You can also follow us on Instagram (@friendsofstebbes). 

Of course, the best way to see it is to visit us in person! Please let us know if you are coming to Oxford, as we’d love to meet you and invite you to experience Ebbe’s student ministry yourself! 


The termly newsletter always includes prayer points. The student team and the students themselves are so grateful for your prayers.


FoSE is grateful to the Lord for all donations however they are given, whether as a one-off contribution or a recurring gift.

For our partners in the United States, we have a fund set up with TrustBridge Global, a partner of National Christian Foundation. Your gift and charitable receipt will be facilitated by International Generosity Foundation, a TrustBridge Global Network Member in the United States.

To give through TrustBridge, please use the details below: 

  • ‘Charity/Fund name’ is St Ebbes PCC Oxford (#218081)
  • ‘Contribution Purpose’ please designate “FoSE / Student Ministry”

It is also possible for you to leave a legacy to FoSE in your will, for which we would be hugely grateful. Your gift would be used to continue to support and build the gospel work among students in Oxford, by reaching out to those who do not yet know Jesus, and discipling those who are following him.
