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

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...

Silence

Silence

It may surprise some of our avid readers to know that one of the Vicar’s favourite authors is Shusaku Endo. He died in 1996 and is widely acclaimed as one of Japans greatest writers. In my opinion his novel, “Silence”, is a work of genius. Martin Scorsese, the...

Owzat!

Many of us will know that Kathleen Brooks is a dab hand at keeping the score card in cricket. I guess that it has enabled her to keep a watchful eye on her two boys, Russell and Clive, as they have played as flannelled fools, as indeed did their Father, Neville,...
