7.  Ride & Stride – Saturday 13th September.  A sponsored event to raise money for our church and the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust.  We need volunteers to welcome visitors to St Andrew’s.  Details and a sign-up sheet are on the tract table or speak to our local organiser Annette Ingleton.

8.  Ideas for music at St. Andrew's :
The musical life at St Andrew's Church is embarking on an exciting new phase. We are looking for singers and musicians of all ages, who would like to be part of our new plans.
Under the leadership of Richard Bennett, the Director of Music at St. Andrew's, we are looking to set up 4 new groups :
A Youth Choir
A Church Choir
The St Andrew's Singers
The St Andrew's Players
For more information about any of these groups please pick up a leaflet in church or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

9. Community Food Bank -  Boxes for your donations are in the church room foyer, and lists of what is needed are on display. There is a particular need (and a week on week requirement) for tinned potatoes and coffee. There are very few of the former and none of the latter in the warehouse at the moment. On the other hand it is particularly requested that pasta, tea and biscuits are NOT donated for the time being as there are mountains of each of these!
