All Welcome for a Bring and Share Picnic

September 2nd we are planning to have a church picnic at Hogacre park  to round off the summer holidays. All are welcome! Bring your own food and drink. We will bring some of the outdoor equipment from church (tennis rackets, soft footballs etc.) with us but do bring along any other outdoor equipment / games that you want with you.

A great opportunity for food, fun and fellowship together before the summer is over, we hope to see you there!

Volunteer Drivers

The Archway Foundation supports lonely people in Oxford and Abingdon and needs Volunteer Drivers!
If you have a driving licence and own a car, you could be a lifeline for somebody who is lonely and isolated. Archway's drivers provide a key service to those who cannot get out to Archway's social groups in order to meet others who are often their only friends.
Do please contact Archway to find out more at this link.
