The Breakfast Service
The Breakfast Service takes place on the fourth Sunday of every month (except August and December) and everyone is welcome. We have a short informal service, often with an invited speaker, and break in the middle for a breakfast of bacon and sausage rolls, fried eggs and fresh coffee. Not bad for a church with no running water!
Fun at the Falconry
During the 2019 summer holiday club, we visited the Falconry centre at Holdenby House. We had an amazing day finding out about different birds of prey, meeting Pedro the American Burrowing Owl and Nigel the Harris Hawk. All the children had a chance to fly the harris hawk and some to hold a barn owl. We then had a chance to view the collection of reptiles and insects, holding an enormous snake and various other creatures.
The Breakfast Service goes online!
In March 2020, when the first lockdown started, like many churches we were faced with working out how we could 'do church' when we weren't allowed to meet together. After a lot of hard work and a very steep learning curve, we used Facebook to show a short pre-recorded service at our usual time on a Sunday morning. Then in the Facebook comments, we were able to say hello and post photos of our breakfasts. Not quite the same as being together, but not bad! The services were also available to view on our website. The services proved to be very popular and it was lovely to be able to connect with people who wouldn't normally come into church or who are too far away to visit regularly.
Christmas Bauble Appeal
Rather than sending lots of Christmas cards to all our village friends and neighbours, Diane and Laura set up the Christmas Baubles fundraiser. For a small donation to a nominated charity, villagers can write their Christmas message on a bauble and hang it on the railings. In the past four years, we've raised over £600!
