Ride & Stride 2014

Ride and Stride, run by Glos Historic Churches Trust is a great way to support our churches. Our team of the Wildings, Cartwrights, Peter Watkins rode from church to church on Saturday September 13. Remember 50% of the money you raise goes to our church. The church can then seek a grant for maintaining the fabric of the building, should it have need. Please let your rider have your pledged moneys as soon as possible. If you have not sponsored anyone yet, you can donate any amount using the button below, or TEXT GHCT88 £10 70070 to donate £10 I now have the GHCTrust report for 2013. They have been able to increase their grants by 20%, thanks to rising income. Keep it coming, and help keep your churches maintained.  

Club Pulse

Are you in school years 6-11? Try Club Pulse fortnightly on Sunday afternoons 4.30 -6pm Did you meet Anton at the Scarecrow Day? He’s your man to see.  

The Bells

There are four bells of which three are mediaeval. Our Millennium Project was to rehang the bells so that they could be properly rung. As the bells are part of a listed building and of such age, they are not allowed to be tuned. Why not?  Nor do they swing over. But ringing them is fun. If you would like to try, contact Lynton Mogridge
