13 October – Harvest Celebration St John’s Elkstone  – 10:00 am
Our Harvest Service in Elkstone Church will be on Sunday 13th October at 10.00am.
As in previous years we will be taking donations of food to Cirencester Food Bank. Any donations are so useful and appreciated to the Food Bank.
Please leave any donations in the vestry, and they will be kept secure until we decorate the church for this important service, and then they will be delivered to the Food Bank after the Harvest Service.
26 October – Harvest Supper in the Village Hall – Time TBA
Everyone is welcome and there is no ticket cost, but we ask that you give a donation to our chosen charity ( more news on this in October’s Newsletter)
Our new neighbours to the village will be very welcome, as its a happy evening to catch up with news and chatter.  The supper is simple fare of Shepherd and Cottage Pies (meat, veggie, dietary combinations!) and fruit crumbles and custard.
Offers are requested in advance for this bring and share supper.

Please let us know if you’d like to come, and what you’d like to bring; Contact Carole on 870493 if you would like to attend.

We’re not biased, but we know that our tiny church, nearly a thousand years old, nearly a thousand feet up, is the most beautiful in the Cotswolds!! Most important, however, is that worship is still alive, week by week, in our community.

None of our services are pompous, bossy or scary.  You will find a welcome before, a friendly service and a cuppa afterwards.

Don’t sit in the porch – come on in!  This is Elkstone
