We have continued to share fellowship via Zoom during lockdown and have enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know one another on Zoom. Details of our current Zoom fellowship can be found here.
In normal times, we enjoy many social activities, both within the church congregations and with the wider community. The events listed below are grouped according to location, but we are very much one Parish and frequently meet in each others’ church spaces. We are a sociable parish, and are enjoying being able to meet and greet each other again.
2020 was the year we planned to celebrate the 800 year anniversary of both our St Mary’s churches, with a whole range of special social and fundraising events. Most of these had to be postponed, due to Coronavirus, but we did enjoy the first two events, an Epiphany Tea and a Black Tie Dinner early in 2020. A few concerts did take place in Autumn/Winter 2021 and we are now looking to resume the planned programme in 2022 – starting with an Open Gardens event in Kidlington and Hampton Poyle on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd of July.
