Ladies, be tempted to join us for a scrumptious Cream Tea at 'Bake & Bloom' in Writtle on Saturday 23rd July at 2pm. A excellent opportunity to enjoy good company, conversation and (hopefully!) some summer sunshine. Speak to Libbi MacGregor, Fiona Baxter or contact the parish office.
This week we return to our summer preaching series, "Responses to Mission" and the concluding message, 'The thrill-seekers and the overly-familiar'. (Matthew 12:30-50)
We are a team of three churches in one parish:St Mary's High Ongar, St James' Marden Ash and All Saints' Norton Mandeville. For more details of regular services and activities please contact the Parish Office (click on title above) Monday-Thursday 9.30am-12.30pm during term time)
Farewell to James Knowles and family…
After three years as Curate here in the parish, Revd James Knowles is soon to be licensed as the Associate Minister of Christ Church Cockfosters. The Licensing Service will be on Sunday 4th September at 6pm and everyone is most welcome.
The last Sunday James, Tash and the family will be with us here in High Ongar, will be 31st July.
We would like to give James a parting gift. If you would like to contribute, the Churchwardens are collecting contributions; alternatively you could drop your contribution into the Parish Office.
Summer Sundays - Youth Groups
During the weeks of August 2016 we would love to be able to give our usual youth group leaders a summer vacation (along with our other helpers who disciple the youngsters in our church family) by asking others to assist in this most important ministry. So...if YOU would be willing to share the privilege in teaching the Good News of God’s love during one of three Sundays in August (14th, 21st, 28th), then please do let James Knowles know asap. He will supply ready-to-go material in order to make it as simple as possible.
