On Sunday 19th November worshippers returned to their newly redecorated and refurbished church. It was a very joyous celebration of full choral Mattins with an excellent uplifting sermon by Revd Harriet and many people stayed behind afterwards to chat over coffee.
The Wednesday morning before the re-opening parishioners turned out in force driving to and fro from Angela's garage, where everything had been stored, and then ferrying all the kneelers, carpeting, banners and other important items from the car park, back into the church. Revd Harriet helped and found time to take a few pictures of the 'workforce'.

On 3rd November there was a Coffee Morning aimed at reuniting members of Woodmancote's congregation whilst the church was shut. This also included a Bring and Buy Stall that raised £200 for the Fabric Fund. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
The services for the next few weeks are as follows:
Sun 10 Dec Mattins
Sun 17 Dec Carol Service
