Dear Friends

On Sundays during Advent there will be a retiring collection to benefit ‘Restore’ an Oxfordshire based mental health charity that supports people to take control of their recovery, develop skills and lead meaningful lives.  The carol service collections will also go to support the organisation.

Advent Service at the Old Church, Heythrop, 5pm on Saturday 30 November

For this Saturday’s candel-lit Advent service in the old church there will be lighting in the parking area and a covered pathway (wood or rubber) across to the gate that leads into the field – wellies, torch etc recommended.

Friday 6th December: 1.30pm at St Michael’s, Great Tew: the funeral of Gordon Taylor.

Come and join us on Wednesday 18th December from 7pm-9pm at The Tew Centre for a festive evening where you will create your own Christmas Table Flower Decoration whilst supping mulled wine, eating delicious canapés and hum along to festive carols.  Tickets are £20 per person with all profits going to St Michael’s and All Angels Church Great Tew. Places are limited, to book a ticket please contact Revd. Ginny Thomas by email: [email protected] or by telephone: 01608 683 584.

Christmas Cards

These are available for sale at St Michael & All Angels, Great Tew.  In addition, details of how to purchase cards of Sue Cave’s wood engraving are in the back of Little Tew church (and attached to the e-bulletin) – all proceeds in aid of the Society of Wood Engravers.

Christmas Flowers

We would be grateful for any donations towards the cost of Christmas flowers to decorate Great Tew church. There will be a basket at the back of the church during services or money can be given to Ginny or Susannah Veale.
