Harvest – All-Age service at St James School

On Sunday 1 October our All-Age Harvest Festival at 10am will be held at St James’ School.  A different way of ‘doing church’ at a different venue! Come along to celebrate harvest. You may remember back in April, following discussion at our Annual Meeting, the Church Council considered again the issue of where we will worship when Church is closed for the reordering in 2018 (subject to DAC approval).  We identified two principles; consistency of venue and that pastorally it is important for us to remain as a distinct congregation.  We also considered the range of our worship.  We decided to explore further being at Cheltenham College most Sundays and being at St James school on the first Sunday of the month.  To explore this further, as a whole congregation, we are going to try out these venues in October.  We will also have our 10am service on 15 October at Cheltenham College chapel.  Do speak to members of the Church Council if you have thoughts on this matter.
