Ride & Stride 2014

Ride and Stride, run by Glos Historic Churches Trust is a great way to support our churches. You can walk, cycle or ride church to church on Saturday September 13. Plan your own route, as short or long as you like. If you cannot ride or stride, you can also be sponsored to man the church or ring bells or bake cakes! Further info and sponsorship forms from Peter Watkins 861614 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.  

Club Pulse

Are you in school years 6-11? Try Club Pulse fortnightly on Sunday afternoons 4.30 -6pm 

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. Nor do they swing over. But ringing them is fun. If you would like to try, contact Lynton Mogridge

Balance Sheet Notes
The Meeting in the Village Hall on Monday 10th March requested that the Church Balance Sheet be published. The sheet should be read in conjunction with the Notes. They are both formatted as pdf files which will open in a new window.

The Fête 2014

held at the Manor on Saturday 21st June was hailed a great success, and raised £2772 for church funds. On Sunday 22nd there was a large church attendance for Festival Songs of Praise, and the dedication of a new window, funded by the bequest of Malcolm Poole’s aunt Vera. The flowers from the Fête were also on display, (click picture left) and used as themes for the Songs.
