Forthcoming Events

Besides our regular services, the Community Hub activities and all the groups who use the hall weekly, there are other social events open to all our friends and neighbours. These are either organised by the church community or by local groups hiring the hall.

Coming Next

We are planning for Craft Mornings on each Wednesday in August (7th, 14th, 21st, 28th), with a different them each week. As usual these will run from 10am to 12noon and there will be plenty of activities for children of all ages. Entry Free, Refreshments available.

Recent Events

Already in 2019 we have had another VERY busy Craft Morning when everyone who came had lots of things to make (as well as cake to eat). Craft activities also played a part in our Good Friday Family service.

Thanks to everyone who came along to St John's for our 60th Anniversary celebration weekend back in September 2018. We started with a most enjoyable Harvest Supper, with delicious food to sustain us and the playing of Justin and Mairi to soothe us. On the Saturday lunchtime people started arriving with bags of apples (with or without bruises, maggots etc) for the Apple Pressing session. The team from Kidlington Abundance were on hand to turn all this into refreshing apple juice. That event segued in to Cream Teas, with scones, jam and cream washed down by tea or coffee. Some of the hall users came along to give displays of what they get up to - dance, rock music, zumba, ... And then on Sunday our Morning Eucharist Service was very special. Not only did we have Arch Deacon Martin Gorick presiding and preaching, we had St Mary's choristers singing, our own Junior Church performing a presentation, the collecting of Harvest gifts (later taken to the Ley Community and the local Foodbank) and the baptism of baby Jakob. - All together a really great weekend!
