St Giles’ have challenged St Margaret’s to a cricket game on 8th July at St Edward’s School after the 10:30am service. Let Tom know or sign up at the back of Church.

The number of newly-stitched kneelers for St. Margaret’s is gradually growing.  However, we would like to step up our output!  We meet monthly to sew together and if you would like to join our group please email kneelers@stmargaretsoxford.org.

We are looking for a Children’s Worker – could this be you or someone you know?  See https://wp.me/P7TDNT-zL for more details.

Would you be prepared to help with catering at St. Margaret’s social events?  Speak to Kathryn, Michèle or Samantha for more information.

Do you shop on line?
