During Artweeks, there will be the popular plant sales and floral displays in the church, but this year there will be a new addition - a self-guided quiz and trail, which will reveal to visitors some of the lesser-known features of the church.
We are also developing links with Kelmscott Manor (where William Morris lived, and which is open to the public). William Morris has associations with our church and others in the Badbury Group, and if you visit Kelmscott Manor you can see his brass-rubbing of our monumental brass to the Morys family. We are exploring with Kelmscott the possibility of a local William Morris trail.
Here are our regular and special services and events over the next two months. As you see, several services will be joint services with Coleshill.

With all good wishes,
Your friend and vicar, David
