As we emerged, blinking, from our social hibernation, a few events and activities and the occasional sunny day have helped coax us back to life. Thank you to all the organisations and individuals who have provided these happy occasions. Here’s our church summer in pictures…
Outdoor church services and lots of activity in the Ecogarden (for more Ecogarden photos, visit the webpage www.stokepogeschurch.org/garden
Ladies Lifegroup end of term social
Mowers on parade – there’s been a lot of grass this year!
250th Anniversary of the death of Thomas Gray – we shared events with the Stoke Poges Society, who presented a cheque to the church towards the upkeep of Thomas Gray’s tomb, and with Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens
The Horticultural Society’s Annual Show, where the church ran the barbecue
Our first Baby Steps baptism: Maeve – more to come this term!
Senior Citizens’ day trip to Worthing
The wedding of Charlotte Wells & Rory Wood – we love a church family wedding 🙂
Our annual barbecue at St Giles’ on the first Sunday in September – the warmest weather for years
Knit and Natter secretly decorated the village postbox but when the first installation was stolen, they came back strong! More seasonal variations to follow.
Lots more events coming this term: Harvest on 3rd October, Remembrance on Thursday 11th & Sunday 14th November, more Ecogarden activities and a Rake off at St Giles’.
We would love to share more photos of church events. If you would like to send in your photos for a future blog post, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
