Activities for Lent

Lent Study Group

Callum Hawker is leading a Lent Study Group taking place over four weeks on Thursday evenings (week 3 this Thursday). The theme is ‘The joy of the gospel’ using material by Paula Gooder, one of our foremost Christian teachers. The group will be in the Meeting Room - gather from 8.15pm for hot drinks before an 8.30 start. You are welcome to join the group for any week.

Lent Lunches

are being held in Walton-on-the-Hill on Saturdays. All are welcome.


Church Spring Cleaning Day Saturday 23rd March All day

We have a dedicated small team of church cleaners. But there are lots of nooks and crannies, windows and cobwebs, and lots of items like brass and silver that get cleaned once in a blue moon. This is that day!


International Food Evening: Saturday 23rd March 7-10 pm (hall)

Not to be missed, this church social event is for the whole family. Come and enjoy food and drinks from around the world. There will also be a bar, a quiz and a raffle.

Tickets are £12 adults, £6 children available from 01737 362610, from and at the back of church after 10am Sunday services.


Confirmation in 2024

At a Confirmation service, candidates confirm for themselves their baptism promises. Traditionally, after their Confirmation, children receive the bread and wine of communion. For adults, either Confirmation or Adult Baptism opens the way to receive the bread and wine of communion.* One of our Bishops leads the services and blesses the candidates.

We will be holding Confirmation preparation classes for both children and adults in the Summer Term (after 15th April) over six weeks, with a Confirmation Service on Sunday 23rd June.

Please let the Vicar know of your interest in Confirmation (which can include Adult Baptism if appropriate).

*Adults who take part in communion in other church denominations are welcome to take part in communion at our services without needing to be Confirmed. Some people in this situation choose to be Confirmed to show their commitment to the Church of England.


For our Prayers

We pray for the Church Open Meeting this Tuesday, that we come to a common mind about our priorities for the mission and ministry of our church.

Following the World Day of Prayer service last Friday designed by Palestinian Christians, we continue to pray for the people of the Palestinian Territories and Israel, that adequate food, water and shelter be provided for Gaza, and that ways forward towards a just peace may be found.
