Family Time at St Giles’, Horspath
Each third Sunday of the month at 11 for 11.15am we hold a special Family Time half hour service with songs, a reading and prayers, focused on a particular theme. The morning starts with coffee, cake, a time to chat and the children to play. Suitable for children and all who are young at heart. Look forward to seeing you then.
Family Communion at St Mary’s, Garsington
Each third Sunday of the month at 9.30am we hold Family Communion – a service suitable for all ages.
Posies of flowers are handed out to all mothers and loved ones at the three services across the Benefice (9.30am for Garsington and Cuddesdon and 11am for Horspath). There are often a few left over to go on the graves of those we love but see no longer.
At Harvest time we hold our Harvest Festivals for all the family. At Garsington there is a sale of produce after the 9.30 am service which goes towards funding Christmas baskets and plants for the bereaved and sick of the village. Garsington school also holds its Harvest services in the church where Key stage 1 present the Harvest loaf they have made.
At Horspath we often welcome the local Pre-School to join us for our Harvest service.
Each Christmas Acorn class perform their school Nativity in St Giles’. It is a very special occasion.
