Charities we support

From our financial giving this year:

Street Kids Direct
Street Kids Direct works with children in Guatemala, Honduras and 'at risk' children in the U.K, who have been forced through poverty, physical and/or sexual abuse to live on the violent streets, where the average time of survival is 4 years.  100 percent of all donations go directly to the charity because there are no offices, salaried staff or overheads, just inspirational volunteers providing support, education, food and preparation for work to these children.

Saunderton Lodge

Emergency temporary accommodation for homeless families

As the courts are not currently operating, Saunderton Lodge has no new families with children, and, for the moment, doesn’t need clothes or toys.  The priority items they are now looking for focus mainly on the kitchen, such as pans, pots, bowls, whisks, knives, servers, tin openers, storage, cleaning materials, plus kitchen cutlery and crockery. 

Donations need to be made in person - it’s a 30 minute drive to the Lodge, at

Other Charities
In addition, the church actively supports a number of other charities at certain times of the year. The highly successful Lent Lunches give money to local charities and also to overseas Christian work; the Mission to Seafarers, Christian Aid and Children's Society are also beneficiaries.

The usual inbox and answerphone will be checked once a week. In the mean time, the working-from-home email address is saintgileschurch@gmail.com, or in an emergency contact the clergy.

We are a Fair Trade church
