Picnic in the ParkDelayed for a week - but what an improvement in the weather!  A beautiful morning, sunny and warm, brought everyone out to the park with friends and family. Suncream and hats rather than waterproofs were needed this week. We had many of our normal outdoor activities and also had the space for the big parachute and the stomp rocket.  Rachel led our songs with her guitar, and everyone brought their picnics. Thank you to everyone for coming, to St Michael's churchwardens for opening up their toilets for our use, and to Christ's Hospital for the use of the Park.

Thy Kingdom Come

25th May to 4th June 2017

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.  To find out what is going on in Abingdon, please download the leaflet

Open the Book - Noah's ArkOn Sunday 7th May Junior Church helped give an 'Open the Book' version of the story of Noah.  Open the Book is a particularly successful scheme for telling Bible stories in primary schools, and it is hoped to set up a group in Abingdon to make it available here.  Please contact the Revd Mary Williamson through the office if you are interested.
