Message from Revd Hilary Campbell

Hello everyone, An update on church services: The Church of England has confirmed that public worship is to stop for the time being.  Our usual pattern of Sunday services and other mid-week gatherings must be put on hold.  There will be changes to the way we can gather as church. We will seek to make the buildings accessible for prayer and reflection. There will be arrangements for weddings and funerals. For those who would find it helpful, we will provide prayer and reflection resources that can be used at home. We will investigate other ways of sharing times of worship. There is an invitation for this Sunday, which is Mothering Sunday, to make this a moment of coming together. We

A Peal for Evelyn Phillips tomorrow morning, starting at 9:30am

A group of experienced ringers from the Banbury & Oxford areas will be coming to ring a peal on the Wardington bells on Saturday 14th December; they will start ringing at about 9.30a.m. and the peal will take approximately 3 hours. Peals are normally rung to mark something special, which may be local or national, and this peal is being rung in appreciation of Mrs Evelyn Phillips and to celebrate her 100th and 101st birthdays. What is a peal? Nowadays it indicates a minimum of 5,040 changes – where two bells change place – but there is also a long list of rules, some of which are:  Every bell must sound at every row of six blows throughout the peal.
