Twin your church toilets
We are truly humbled by all the support we receive from churches across the UK.
If you’d like to twin some toilets, you could…
- dedicate a Sunday service to toilet poverty
- put on a loo-themed event such as a Blue for the Loo day, or a Soggy Bottoms bake sale
- create a display at the back of church
For a donation of £60, you can twin one of your church toilets with a household latrine in a country of your choosing. Or, for a donation of £240, you can twin your church toilets with a toilet block.
Dates for your diary
Harvest is an ideal time of year for a service about God’s blessings.
World Toilet Day is on 19 November. You could choose the Sunday before (17 November) or the Sunday after (24 November) for a special focus on Toilet Twinning, and God’s abundant blessings.
Inspiration for your church
From disease and debt…
Sita lives in Ivory Coast. In her village, no-one had toilets until a few years ago: the smell was terrible, and disease spread rapidly. Sita’s children were constantly sick – but Sita couldn’t afford to buy medicines, and her debts with the health centre mounted up. ‘We felt hopeless; trapped. We didn’t want to live anymore,’ she says.
…to health and hope
Toilet Twinning’s partner started teaching families about hygiene and sanitation, and showed them how and where to build toilets. Now Sita has a toilet at her home, her family are healthy and debt free – and the children are going to school.
Here’s a film of Sita’s inspirational story:

St Mark’s Biggin Hill
St Mark’s Biggin Hill raised more than £1,800 by flying the twinning flag across their community, including talks with their local MP.
Young people aged 4-11 led the way in St Gabriel’s fundraising drive with toilet roll money boxes, toilet-themed cakes, and a Blue for the Loo day in church.
