Autumn Talks 2018

Autumn Talks 2018 – Cherishing God’s Earth

We were saddened earlier in the year by the death of John Gordon. John felt passionately about a number of issues but especially about the damage we are doing at present to the environment. He was always keen to encourage people from any background to think about this issue and what it might mean to take greater care of the environment. So this year we have decided to devote our autumn talks to this important issue and the series will be in memory of John. Christian faith offers a number of insights, others also hold some important perspectives. So we hope that this series of three talks & meetings will bring together people from any background or group who want to think about this important issue. All events are on Sundays and start at 15:30 in St Mary’s Church, Wallingford

A new look For toddlers

by

This year we opened up the toddler group for five weeks during the summer break. The attendance was really good, and the sessions very much appreciated.  We started back on 12th September with a new vision and under a new name of ‘Tiny Toes at St Mary’s’.  Our hope and prayers are that toddlers can continue to grow and thrive, and during that time we can help be a link to the church, as well as provide opportunities for the parents, carers, grandparents etc. to discover more of the Christian Faith.

Maren & Rhonda are looking forward to heading up the group this year but as always, they are looking to grow the team.  If you feel this is something you could contribute to or would like to find out more, please contact/speak to them.
