The chaplaincy SVP group (Society of St. Vincent de Paul) is part of a nationwide network of parish groups committed to Christianity in action and the service of those most in need. Oxford is much bigger than the University and there are many opportunities for such service. Projects currently undertaken include visiting the hospital- and house-bound, an early morning hot-drink run for the homeless and work with the Christ Church Home-Learning Scheme. There are plans afoot to develop links with Asylum Welcome.
Members of the group commit to taking on whatever task they can manage in the hectic schedule of the Oxford term and have the opportunity for support and reflection from the Chaplains.
