Forthcoming Events

The Parish Calendar lists the services and events at all three churches.

Caversham Church Fete

Saturday 14 July at Caversham Court Gardens

In the Centenary year of the Royal Air Force, one of its most iconic and best loved aircraft, the Supermarine Spitfire, will grace the skies above the Caversham Church Fete. The fete begins at 1pm; the Spitfire is due at 2pm. This is a truly traditional fete, combining entertainment, refreshments, stalls and sideshows. Press release

Of course, all this takes a great deal of volunteer effort! Please think what you might be able to contribute and whether you would be able to help in any way on the day. We’ll need books; bric a brac; toys; items for chocolate, bottle and general tombolas; preserves; garden/plants; crafts; jewellery; cakes; and anything for the ladies stall. A list of stall holder contacts is available in the churches.

If you wish to help publicise this event, you could share or print the flyer: front page, back page.
