Caution

Whilst we do our very best to ensure that the paths through the Churchyard are clear of leaves during late autumn and winter there are still areas where we all need to exercise careful attention. This is particularly the case on the gravestones that were laid flat in the 1970’s on the north side of the Church and in the area around the parish hall. You may recall that only last year we relocated similarly placed stones from the west end that are now located upright along the parish hall wall. Our current situation is a matter that members of the PCC are examining.

Please do be careful

I recently climbed into the clocktower of Church. We had discovered a leak and I went up with John Williams to have look. Thankfully, the leak has now been sorted out, but more about that some other time! Whilst I was snooping around, I made a great find. Underneath...

It comes as a bit of a surprise for quite a few people when they realise that the Church of England has nuns and monks living in communities up and down the country. I grew up around the corner from the Cowley Fathers in East Oxford and as many of you know been...
