On 6th November at 5.30pm, at the Barn Church, we will be having a launch jam session and get together for our new Worship Band. Please come along with your instruments, or just your singing voice. All skill levels, and all ages, are warmly welcomed. There will be pizza!
Come and enjoy a wonderful barn dance at the Barn Church on 8th October – doors open at 6pm. There will be a buffet and a bar too. For tickets email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Clare Vollum on 07708 064935.
Next Sunday we will begin a special Stewardship Drive over a four week period (25th September -17th October) to raise awareness about the importance of stewardship as part of Christian discipleship, and the essential part that your generosity of time, talents and financial support play in keeping our church alive and viable. There will be a different theme for each service and also Junior Church will be running on those same themes so our children are engaged in fun activities around stewardship too. I would like to ask you to please make a special effort to attend one, some, or all of the Sundays, so we can pray, listen, and discuss together matters of vital importance to the future of the Barn Church, whilst giving thanks for all we have.

Origanised by the National Garden Scheme, five gardens opening for you to enjoy, all within a two minute walk – Numbers 26, 34, 60, 61 & 62
Although of similar size, these five neighbouring gardens are all very different. At No. 26 you will find many NZ natives and fruit trees inc loquat, mulberry and feijoa, alongside a delicate chamomile lawn. No. 34 is a cottage style garden with an emphasis on roses: abundantly cascading over fences, in standard form in beds and rambling amongst other plants. An ‘old sink pond’ gives shelter to wildlife. No. 60 is a typical town garden where visitors can enjoy a fine display of patio roses, flowering shrubs and climbers, inc over 20 varieties of clematis around a curved lawn. Next door is a family garden, created from scratch in 2018. Opposite is a traditional English garden with a touch of wilderness comprising different rooms containing a variety of plants inc hostas and geums. There is a pond with newts while a Parrotia persica provides dappled shade for alliums and ferns.
