BEETHOVEN MEETS BRAHMS on Saturday 19 January at 7.30pm is the first of Anita D’Attellis’ 2019 Wallingford Winter Recitals, when she is joined by Marian Givens (violin) and Andrew Sutton (French horn). Tickets are cheaper in advance at £12 from Wallingford Town Information Centre or online from www.ticketsource.co.uk/wrw2019. See poster or pick up a brochure for full details.
Would you like to help on the night? Contact Roger Morgan in person or on 01491 837494. Anita is again generously donating proceeds to the Tower Fund – last year she gave £3,000 from 4 recitals so do give your support!
This year St Mary’s and St Leonard’s are looking to support the Wallingford Food Bank over the Christmas period. The idea is simple. Take a cardboard box and on each day of Advent place an item of food in the box at the same time that you open your Advent Calendar. On Christmas Day or afterwards please bring the brimming boxes into St Mary’s Church and your gifts will be donated to the Wallingford Food Bank. When thinking about items of food to donate, ideal items include canned foods, pasta, cereals, tea, coffee etc. No fresh food please. If you have any questions, please contact Gavin Wood who is co-ordinating things (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are at the final stages of raising funds to cover the cost of repairs to the west side of the tower, which dates from the 1650s. We need a boost to get work under way in 2019. Do help if you can with a donation via JustGiving. Any amount is much appreciated. Thank you.
Starting on the 16thof September, we will be continuing our JAM sessions for children aged 2 to 8 during our morning services on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month. Together we will be exploring Bible stories and the Christian faith through games, drama, songs, crafts and much more. Feel free to join us.
