Shutford’s Standard

The Midsummer Festival in the Manor Field raised £1,100 each for three village organisations including St Martin's Church. The event was well supported: special thanks to the organising committee and their team.

Morning Praise, a less formal service, is held on the third Sunday of the month and the one on 21st September is a Pets' Special at 11am with refreshments for all afterwards.

The following Sunday is our Harvest Festival at 6pm. Please bring along your donations of produce during the weekend.

A Harvest Ploughman's Supper will be held in the village hall on Monday, 29th September at 7.30pm. Donations from the supper, a raffle and sale of produce will be shared between the church and the Church Urban Fund.

Messy Church Events will be held during the autumn across the benefice with the first one in Epwell on 13th September at 4.00pm. Please support these events as they play an important part in the church`s ministry in the benefice.

Ride and Stride takes place on 13th September also. All our churches will be open to receive visitors: sponsorship forms for those taking part are available in St Martin's Church. Funds raised will be shared between the church and the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust.
