NEXT DATE FOR BOOK READING FELLOWSHIP – Please come along to Sally Churchus home @ 103 Gravel Road on Monday 13TH May @ 2 pm to  discuss books with some Christian content, either from the church library or your own.

GOOD FRIDAY – 19TH APRIL – We will begin our Walk of Witness from the Village sign, outside the Greyhound Pub, and walk to Church.  At approximately 10.45 am we will have a short church service including a dramatic reading, and this will be followed by Hot cross buns in the Hall.  There will be a time for quiet reflection around the cross from 2.45 pm – 3 pm.

HEALING & WHOLENESS (H&W) - Every 3rd Sunday we offer healing and wholeness prayers for all who may like the benefit of a special prayer,  just after taking Communion on Easter Sunday 21st April and 19th May.

MEDITATION GROUP – Every 3rd Monday  - 15th April and 20th May.  We begin at 7.30 pm in the Church or church hall.  All are very welcome, to take time out from our busy lives  

MEN’S PUB SOCIAL – These happen every 3rd Wednesday of the month – and the next one is 17th April & 15th May at the Greyhound Pub @ 7.30 pm.

PUB SOCIALS – Our next Pub social will be @ 7.30 pm on Tuesday 14th May at the Crown. Please do come along for a meal, or just a couple of drinks  – all are very welcome!

MESSY CHURCH – Tuesday 21st May at 3.30 – 6 pm.  Come along for lots of fun and crafts, followed by a short act of worship in church, then finishing with a High Tea.  Free admission, but donations towards costs much appreciated.

NEW PATTERN OF WORSHIP - At the last PCC meeting it was decided that after Easter we would follow the pattern of worship as outlined:
First Sunday in the month: an ‘All Age’ Communion service at the 10.00 am service, still shorter and child friendly!  (This means we will no longer have a BCP Communion Service at 8.00 am)
First Tuesday in the month: prayer walk.  9.30 am
With opportunity to gather for a cuppa afterwards in the village.
Second Wednesday of the month: mid-week BCP Communion at 10.30 am
Third Monday of the month:  Meditation at 7.30 pm
Fourth Tuesday:  Home Group at the Rectory. 7.30 pm



Our next Messy Church is on Tuesday 21st May 2019 from 3.30 until 6pm.  We begin the session with crafts, and games, then we go into Church for a short Christian talk with music, praise and prayers, then return to the hall for a High Tea.  Everyone is most welcome!


Do come and join us on the first Sunday of each month for our new Family Worship service at 10am.  The service is designed as an All-age Service, so we hope that children and families, indeed people of all ages, will come and be able to feel involved.  Do please let other people know about this service. 

Further details of events can be found on the Pew Sheet.
