It is co-ordinated and completed by lay preacher Teresa Kennard each year. Please deliver them by late morning on March 29. The service iis at 7.30pm.

Children’s Society benefits

Last year, the Children’s Society received £545.23 from box collections around the Parish and  £235 from carol singing around Littlewick Green. Many thanks to all the people that supported both. They were great results.

If anyone would like to have a collecting box in their home, please let me know and I will endeavour to deliver or they can be collected, whatever is convenient.

Opportunity to explore spirituality

In July, the Oxford Diocese and the Bible Readering Fellowship’s Festival of Prayer will be an opportunity to step back from the busyness of life and spend time exploring prayer and different aspects of spirituality.

Taking place at Ripon College, Cuddesdon from 10am to 4pm, it will ‘include starter sessions of spiritual traditions and those that “go deeper”’.

There will be a chance to explore different ways of praying and seeing whether they work for you.

Delegates can attend up to four workshops and enjoy some personal space for reflection.
