10am Sunday Morning Communion: this service is being zoomed for the foreseeable future and when Covid guidelines allow people may attend in person. If you come to the service be aware that seating is social distanced, children must stay with their parents, it is advisable to wear a face covering. Communion will be in one kind only, there will be no singing or refreshments. Children can bring their own quiet toys or they can make use of a church activity box.
Explore Together – our all age, all ability, Bible study session has been cancelled due to Covid but will reopen as soon as it can.
Is God calling you to work with Children and Families?
The current Children and Families Worker is stepping down from her post in order to take up a new role.
At present due to the Covid pandemic most of the things we do with Children and Families is on hold, but when it restarts new people will be needed to run things, please pray about whether you should get involved.

Bishop Steven is encouraging all churches in Oxfordshire to consider how they organise services to be more intergenerational and so cater for the whole church family, from babes to OAP’s and how they can help families grow in their faith. He has published a document ‘Disciples Together’ to help us think through this issue – you can access it at:
