Harvest Festival Service @ St Mary's Church
Sep 27 @ 10:00 am

It is planned to hold the Service in the churchyard below the Tower (weather permitting).

The Service starts at 10am (later than usual) and will consist of traditional music, readings and prayers celebrating Harvest.  Everyone is very welcome

Harvest Gifts will be donated to the Didcot Food Bank.  The Food Bank is in particular need of tins of vegetables (potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans), fruit and meat; small jars of coffee, dehydrated potato, UHT fruit juice and UHT milk.

At present they do not require tins of baked beans, tins of fish, tins of custard, rice and pasta.

If you wish to donate to the Food Bank but cannot attend the Service gifts may be left in the Church during its current opening times, Thursday and Sunday between 10am and 4pm.

Under Government Track and Trace Regulations, Revd David Haylett must record names and contact details for anyone attending.  If you know you will be there it would be helpful if you could email him in advance, address below, otherwise just turn up and he will record you then.

Moonrakers @ St Mary's Church
Nov 28 @ 7:30 pm

Moonrakers is an Oxford-based group of four musicians who pride themselves in having brought traditional and contemporary folk music to new audiences in village halls, churches, arts centres and festivals across the UK.  The fact that the band “just oozes quality” (Living Tradition) is down to the careful arrangements and selection of tunes and songs, presenting “exquisite music” (BBC).  The material is a combination of traditional Irish, Scottish, Welsh and English music and their own contemporary songs and tunes, still very much ‘in the idiom’.

Some villagers may have seen them perform on Wittenham Clumps last May Bank Holiday where their music was highly acclaimed.

Tickets are £12 on the door.
