JULY 2017


FRIDAY 21 August



Feast of St Mary Magdalene 9.30 EUCHARIST

Arrangements for the Community Festivals in August have not been finalised. As always, if you plan to join us for the Eucharist, it’s wise to check by phone or email (or in person if you pass our gates).


It’s been ages since we shared any news – not that nothing has happened since March. We hope to post a fuller account before too long. Meanwhile, a little picture parable.

We were given a jigsaw puzzle of a map of Oxford, which we were warned was difficult. How could that be? It’s where we live, and a good many of us go into the city centre and reckon we know our way about. We looked at the picture on the lid…all the streets with their names clearly written on them, and the waterways and those distinctive landmarks. But it wasn’t easy, and it took the patience and perseverance of several sisters to finish it, and the admiration (or forbearance) of the others for its accomplishment. Does that sound familiar?

Watch this space for further updates during July...
