St Helen, PO34 5EF
Sung Eucharist 9.30am, 2nd and 4th Sundays
A Sung Eucharist service with traditional hymns. We are currently in interregnum, and our worship is being led by associate priest, Rev Barry Downer and lay reader, Sylvia Beardsmore. We are a mainstream, inclusive Anglican church, and all are welcome to worship with us. Do stay for coffee afterwards.
An informal monthly gathering focusing on care of God's Creation. We begin with prayers and reflections and then have an eco- activity. This might be working in the churchyard, pond dipping, butterfly hunting, making and siting bird boxes, or enjoying a visiting speaker. We also engage in national campaigns and local village projects.
We always finish with a bring and share supper of soup, cheese, bread and cake- using local, animal-friendly, organic or fairly-traded ingredients!
You are very welcome to join us on the fourth Sunday of the month from 3.30pm.
Eco Church Gathering
A monthly gathering in St Helen's church and churchyard.
We begin with prayers and readings on an an environmental theme, sometimes outdoors and at the labyrinth.
In the warmer weather we take part in wildlife surveys, pond and labyrinth maintenance and other wildlife management activities. In the winter months we stay in the church, invite speakers on environmental themes, and take part in eco-craft activities.
We always finish our gathering with a bring and share meal which we have in the church.
All are welcome.
