Church Gift Day

Come along with your Gift Day Donation and to find out more about what your village parish church does.  We are now part of the new parish of Ewhurst with Okewood and forest Green but any money donated for this Gift Day will just be for the upkeep of St Peter and St Paul, Ewhurst.  This is especially important this year as we have to meet the costs of replacing our church roof, along with a lot of the stonework, especially on the Bell Tower. Church logo items and the church Guide Book will also be on sale.

If you are unable to come during the morning, please send your donation as instructed on our Gift Day leaflet.  This should have been delivered with your News & views magazine but copies are also available at the back of the church and the Wilson Room.

Each session has a craft aspect and the children have a drink and a biscuit mid morning. All helpers are DBS checked.

Registration Forms will be available at the end of June.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Children cannot be accepted into the Club unless a completed form has been handed in and they have had their place confirmed.
