Seven Churches in South Oxfordshire

Checkendon Church and Churchyard Spring Working Party Saturday 22nd April

Dear friends

Please help us to keep our church and its environment looking lovely! On Saturday morning, from 10-12noon, members of Checkendon church council invite you to join them in church and/or churchyard for the annual clean up. Please bring any tools that you think you might need. The invitation is open to all ages, and no experience is necessary. Its a great way to meet, and chat, too.

It is also the season for annual church meetings – please join us this coming Sunday morning for a short service of Holy Communion, followed by coffee and the chance to participate in the receipt of this year’s report and accounts.

Distant Drums

The mood music is getting louder now for the Coronation of his majesty King Charles III on May 6th; all our team churches will be celebrating, with prayers and services for the occasion. There will be a special “Coronation Praise” at Checkendon at 11am on Sunday 7th May, ahead of the village picnic on the green. The church will also be decorated, so do plan to come along, with your picnic, to enjoy the flowers and the hymns. In a taster, in case you missed them, here is one of the displays that were on show in Church for the Easter festival. The egg, as you might expect, is long gone….

Your Rector, Revd Kevin
