Messy Ducks  the inaugural session of Messy Ducks was held in October 2017 encouraging parents and children of all ages to have a fun afternoon together .  The first session focused on ‘Thankfulness’. It included  a range of craft activities for everyone to enjoy, music, singing, stories and prayers and, most importantly of course, a tea of sandwiches and cakes! [scrollGallery id = 66]

Sunday School  We have dedicated volunteers creating a safe, interesting and active space for our children to be part of the service and having their own time to learn about Jesus and the Bible.  Thank you to all who work so hard in this special outreach part of the church   [scrollGallery id = 65]

Ladies’ Away Day 2017  Our annual away day, although later this year, saw a welcome return to Friars’ Court Clanfield.  With a very interesting talk from local artist Jessica Parker about her work and it’s connection with “letting in God’s light”.  Our talented violinist Jill Allen also played for us to round off a very relaxing and happy day.  [scrollGallery id = 63]

“Easter 2017  We hosted the “Easter Experience” over two days for our local primary school and we were really impressed both with the basic knowledge the pupils had of the Easter story and their questions and involvement with each scene of the tableaux
The children sent us some truly insightful letters highlighting what they learnt from the experience: it was a delight to have walked the journey with each of them.
The scenes were set up again for Good Friday when the church was open for people to reflect and meditate on these key moments in Jesus’ journey to the cross and to his being raised in glory.[scrollGallery id = 61]
