Hartpury Midsummer Festival – United Service 21st July

On Sunday 21st 11.15am we are holding an Anglican/Methodist united service as part of the midsummer festival. This service is unusual in that we shall be holding the service in different places. Moving from outside the church, through the church, then to the table (a very simple all-age Communion), and outside once more. There will an explanation of how we can support the ‘Fair Trade’ movement. The prayers are led by our young people.

A picnic follows and then a walk together around the Orchard Centre. Local art will be on display in the Old Chapel.


In August we shall have two services on Sundays. Please check the rota!
