Earlier this month

On Sun 1 Nov, All Saints' Day, we met at Florence Park bandstand for a short outdoors worship using our new Wee Worship Books which included learning the real purpose of halos, making some from pipe-cleaners and beautiful autumn leaves, and giving thanks for saints past, present and unrecognised. The kids then had a lovely play in the park while we enjoyed the surprising November sun!

Tilly & Richard hosted their first community meal on the stormy evening of12 Nov. It was a thoughtful discussion looking at the Nicene creed and a recent statement by someone in the CofE about how he saw the church's role today.

20-22nd annual retreat, near Wantage

We went to the Courthill Centre again for our weekend pre-advent retreat. It was a really fun time and it was great to share it with some "forever mayBe" folks who don't get to join us much. The kids had a wonderful time.

It was a mix of simple liturgies/worship sessions; arts n crafts; discussions and walks in the wild winds in the woods. Photos will be posted soon!

Further ahead

Saturday 19 December Christmas party at St James' church hall in Cowley.

This tag describes things we're doing/have done. It's a bit of a diary for us, and hopefully it gives you an idea of what to expect if you'd like to join us one day - everyone welcome :-)
