Whenever it happens, confirmation is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Discover more from the Church of England what is invovled in a Confirmation.
Ride + Stride 2022
Saturday 10th September
After the first Wargrave Festival for three years, what could be better than to embrace the spirit of the Ride + Stride and for many in the village to plan bike rides or walks to visit some of the lovely churches here in Berkshire or even further afield.
Many churches, usually closed, will be open and the challenge is to visit as many as possible within the window 10am to 6pm. The aim is to raise funds for churches in our Parish of Wargrave with Knowl Hill and for the Berkshire Historic Churches Trust. The Trust gives grants to churches so that they are able to proceed with essential repairs and restoration work. Discover more...
We ask our friends, families and colleagues to join us on our walk/cycle but failing that, for generous sponsorship. Last year 'Team Wargrave' raised over £2,000. Thank you.
This year we are planning to visit the churches in Wallingford in the morning and those in Abingdon in the afternoon.
If you need help with your plans or for route suggestions or simply join us on our walk in Oxfordshire.
For more informatoin and sponsorship forms, please contact Christine by email or phone - 0118 940 3749.
A Christmas Carol - 26th November 2022

We have an experienced director and an enthusiastic team and all we need are:
Actors, Singers, Musicians and anyone keen to help design and build a simple set. We will also need assistance with costumes, lighting and sound.
We know we have a great deal of talent in our parish and we need you to come forward.
We hope to have an initial presentation and play reading at the end of July with auditions and rehearsals to commence in September.

Enthusiasm is more important than experience, so please join us for a wonderful start to the Christmas period.
