Festival Songs of Praise

Sunday 30th June

You are warmly invited to the end of Wargrave Festival’s Songs of Praise service on Sunday 30th June. 

Taking place in the Marquee on Mill Green, the service will feature a Big Festival Brass Band playing some of the village's favourite hymns and worship songs, along with interviews with those from the village about what the music has meant to them.

We will also be hearing from Revd Jon Drake, Vicar of St Mary's Maidenhead, and former curate in the village, reflecting on his time here and what the good news of Jesus Christ makes to life here. 

This will also be John and Camilla's last service with us. Please then stay in the Festival Marquee, as the Service will be followed by a Celebration of John's time as Vicar of Wargrave, before we all go outside (weather permitting) for the Festival Village BBQ on Mill Green.

Churches Count on Nature

image

Saturday 8th - Sunday 16th June

Every year in June, in churchyards across the country, groups and individuals identify and photograph wildlife, for example plants, fungi, lichens, trees, butterflies, birds, bats. The dates are chosen to coincide with the Great Big Green Week, the UK’s biggest annual call for action on climate change and nature, which this year runs from 8th to16th June. 

The organisers (a charity called Caring for God’s Acre) provide all the resources and accept completed surveys throughout June. They then forward them to experts who forward those they agree with to the National Biodiversity Network’s database. Users of the iNaturalist app can submit their findings to them directly. 

Anyone who would like to take part is asked to contact our Eco Church Lead

For full information, visit Caring for Gods Acre.

Special event: Wargrave Cubs bell-ringing and nature survey, St Mary’s Wargrave, Thursday 6th June 7-8.30 pm. All are welcome to listen and watch.
