Tuesday Little Fishes Club.

A fun weekly service including play, lunch, and a church service for babies, toddlers and pre-school children (and their carers).

 

Wednesday Church.

Services for adults with learning disabilities, their family and carers meeting on the first Wednesday of each month between 10am and 1pm.

Our congregation comes from all areas in and around Didcot, Wallingford and Cholsey. Our leaders and helpers are drawn from various local churches. We begin at 10am with tea or coffee and strive to make our meetings inspiring and enjoyable by using a variety of activities: crafts, music and opportunities to socialise and make friends. Our worship, from 11am, is interactive, fun and easy to understand, the congregation joining in with hymns, readings, drama or wheelchair dancing, and we have sensory activities for those who need  this approach to access their environment. 

Some of us like to bring a picnic lunch and socialise again after the service.

The dates for the months to come are as follows:
December 2nd - our Christmas celebration.
January 6th, 2016 
February 3rd
March 2nd - our fifth birthday celebration
April 6th - our Easter celebration
May 4th
June 1st. 
We hope to arrange our annual outing to the Corswold Wildlife Park for July 6th, but please check for confirmation of this date later in the year. 
There is no meeting in August but we shall meet again on September 7th.  

We are committed to offering equal opportunities for all people to worship God.

Wednesday Lunchtime Fellowship

St Peter’s have an increasing number of elderly members of the congregation who can no longer attend the Sunday services mainly because of mobility problems, and although they receive home communion they very much miss the fellowship of worshipping within a group. The Wednesday Lunchtime Fellowship meets monthly during the middle of the day so that people have time to arrive. The programme consists of coffee on arrival, followed by the service of Holy Communion and ends with a two course lunch. Transport is offered via the County Council disabled mini bus and driver. It aims to provide a lunch of good quality which is home cooked.

 

St John’s Guild

The Didcot branch of St John’s Guild (for the Blind) extends a warm welcome to all visually-impaired Christians of any denomination, and to sighted persons who are willing to help with transport, moving tables and chairs, supplying afternoon tea or providing entertainment. Monthly meetings (except December and January) consist of a short service followed by tea and entertainment. Two outings are made in the summer. Contact Rosemary Pryor (01235 812861) or Sue Edmonds (01235 812158) for details.

The Guild was founded in 1919 through the initiative of Miss Dorothy Light and the Rev. Christian Waudby, a blind Anglican priest who was concerned at the isolation and loneliness in which so many blind people lived.
