Shoe Box Sunday 22 November 9.30am Milton Church (Operation Christmas Child)

Shoe Box time is coming!   Last year, for the first time,  we sent off 73 boxes from Milton Parish Church to children in eastern Europe thanks to your generosity.   This year we are hoping that more of our community will join in this event.   We will be working with the school and the local youth organisations and hope to beat last year’s fantastic effort.   Each shoe box can bring so much happiness to a child who has nothing.   Will you help us this year to let these children know someone cares.   Last year we had wrapped shoe boxes in the library and the church, and we are hoping we can do the same again this year.   We will be dedicating our boxes at our special ‘Shoe Box Sunday’ in Milton Parish Church on 22 November at 9.30am.   Come along and see what a difference they make, and give our shoe boxes a great send-off.   It will make you feel great too!

St. Simon & St. Jude, Milton under Wychwood, Fourth Sunday Worship

During recent months here at our Church in Milton on the Fourth Sunday of the month, we have been enjoying some changes in our services.   With more modern music and telling well known stories from the Bible, and what they mean for us today.

This Sunday,  26th July, we will be hearing about ‘The Marvellous Picnic’ when Jesus fed 5000 people.

During our service this Sunday we will be welcoming Albie into our Church Family.   He is 9 years old and has asked to be baptised himself.   He has chosen his Godparents, who will be his big brother who is 15 and his cousin who is 12.   We are really looking forward to joining with Albie in this great event in his life.

The songs we will be singing will be ‘Shine Jesus Shine’, ‘Feeding 5000’, with actions, ‘God is working His purpose out’, and, ‘Colours of the Day’.

It would be great if you will join us on Sunday at 9.30am for this ‘Marvellous’ Sunday.

Next month in our Fourth Sunday service we will be hearing from St. John’s Gospel about ‘The Bread of Heaven
