Chew Magna Filling Station
Chew Magna Filling Station meets every fourth Thursday at 7.30pm in the Old School Room, Chew Magna. An exciting new way to worship.
Join us for teaching, worship, coffee and cake - it's all good! See you there!
We meet next on the 26th April and the speaker will be Craig Gaudion. We will be at our NEW VENUE - The Pelly Barn, just across the road from our old venue.
Dundry Church. We are making progress, BUT can you help?
You will have seen that the first phase of the roof repair is now complete, and we are so grateful for the donations and grants that have made that possible. Phase 2 will start during the autumn 2017, and see the outer aisle roofs, vestry and porch roofs replaced. We also hope to complete some major reordering inside to improve heating, electrics and provide kitchen/toilet facilities.
Should happen September 2018 but we continue to welcome bookings for weddings right now! In the meantime Dundry weddings can take place at any of our other 5 churches in the Group.
Click here to make a donation on our Just Giving page, or donate by texting DUND33 followed by your amount (e.g. £5) to 70070.
Come along to the Community Cafe at Stanton Drew Church. Open from 10.00am to 12.00 on the second Saturday of each month; it's an opportunity for the community to come together, buy local produce, and meet the neighbours. You'll also be tempted into a bacon buttie!!
Community Choir and Bell Ringing
You'll find details of these activities in the parish magazine. Did you know we are getting a 6th bell for the tower.Once it is fitted you will need to listen out for the peal of 6!
