Our Garden

Well, the wonderful weather has certainly brought everything on - including the grass. First mow and the mower went up in a puff of smoke! A new mower is now in our possession. The frosts mean that we can't put the more tender plants out yet but it won't be long. Inside, the fushias look they are getting ready for the big outdoors and the geraniums are growing fast.

Outside, the hostas are growing fast and furious. We have planted a wild flower seeds where the logs were from the cedar tree that had to be removed. We have noticed plenty of insect activity in the garden - more than in previous years and we have families of blackbird that have moved in to the holly. Emily's garden and the Peace Garden look quite mature although the former was only created last year.

Don't forget, if we are around in the garden, join us for a cup of tea. We love to be disturbed.

The garden around the church has been registered with the Quiet Garden Movement.
It is available for use by the local community for quiet reflection throughout the year but we would ask that you respect the privacy of our neighbours.

FOOD DONATIONS

The Church is one of the the local 'drop off & collection points' for the North Oxfordshire Community Foodbank. Donations of store cupboard food (with a 6-month use by date) are welcomed for distribution to families in need within our area. Please do not leave food bags outside the side door as it can be very difficult to exit the church in an emergency if they are blocking the door. Please leave at the side of the door. For further information contact the Missioner.

Please note that all five Charlbury Churches contribute but donations can be received from anyone.

CHURCH FACILITIES

If you would like to hire any of our facilities we should be pleased to hear from you. The Church is suitable for larger groups (chairs rather than pews) and there is a bright room at the side overlooking the garden that would be suitable for smaller groups. There are excellent kitchen and toilet facilities. There is disabled access to the building. Please contact the Church Secretary.

We do hope you will be in touch and look forward to meeting you.
