Donations & Fundraising

Current project: Oxford Winter Night Shelter

OWNS is a project being run by Oxford churches to offer emergency night shelter accommodation for the homeless in Oxford this winter. It is being run over seven nights a week, from January through to March each year.

Some donations are needed; you can contribute using any of the methods below - simply send an e-mail to [email protected] saying your donation is for OWNS, and we will pass it on, having claimed any Gift Aid we can first.

Centenary Appeal

Established in our centenary year (2015), St Columba's established a Centenary Fund to support the mission of the church for future years.  The original aim was to raise £100,000: £1,000 for every year of the church's history.

Any donations would be gratefully received. We would like to involve as may people as possible in the appeal, so if you are in touch with St Columba's "alumni" around the country or the world then please pass the link to this page onto them.

How to Donate

1. You can donate by sending cheques payable to "St Columba's URC Oxford" to the church address or e-mail us and ask for the details for bank transfers ([email protected]).

2. If you are already a regular donor to St Columba's, simply add your centenary fund donation to your existing envelope or bank transfer (or post us a one-off cheque), ensuring that you let [email protected] know it is for the Centenary Fund. This is the most effective way for existing donors to contribute and ensures all Gift Aid will be claimed automatically.

3. If your employer offers payroll giving, you can set up donations to us. We are UK registered charity number 1162065 (St Columba's Oxford United Reformed Charity)
4. If you are not already a regular donor, donations via credit/debit cards and PayPal can be made via our CAF Donate page.
