Mega Makers! Holiday club

this way

"Mega Makers! holiday club is based on Matthew's Gospel. It explores the theme of inventions, and that the more we discover about God, the vaster his love for us may seem.

We will have a weekend of creative ways to explore the stories.These few days will include craft, games, drama, creative prayer and worship. Mega Makers! has a mixture of up-front presentation and small-group activities, allowing children and leaders to build meaningful relationships with each other and with God.

The programme includes an opening Friday, an adventurous and fun filled Saturday and a closing Sunday service based on Matthew's Gospel; which will be followed by a family bring and share picnic.

This club is suitable for all 4- 11 year olds, with little or no church background as well as for children already part of the church family. 

Being held at Ryarsh Church Hall on July 27th, 28th and 29th. We will kick things off at 9am. This

Church Preserves

Banner 4

Last year the amount raised from selling preserves in the church was slightly down on previous years, £845, still a worthwhile sum.  Many thanks to all those who contribute in so many different  ways to the success of the venture .


For those who may be new to the village, and who may like to support us, the church is open every day and is closer than the shops if you need a jar of marmalade, jam or chutney.


Food bank box

food bank 

If you choose to donate biscuits to the food bank box in the church porch I’m sure that they will be enjoyed by the recipients, but please don’t think that someone has pinched them when they disappear.  There seems to be a mouse that likes biscuits too!  So the biscuits will be stored at Commority until there are enough other goodies in the box to take it to Margaret Ivell in Birling, who coordinates the deliveries to the Pilsdon centre.


Thursday Morning Prayer

Come and join us in bible reading and prayer for our communities, including our schools, the world, and the church at 8.30am for half an hour at St Peter & St Paul, Trottiscliffe, each Thursday morning.
