Charity of the Quarter

For May, June and July the PCC will be collecting donations via the charity plate near the door of the church, to help the work of the Banbury branch of The Samaritans. Nationally, the Samaritans receive 600 calls every hour from people who are struggling to cope. For more information please go to: . Please give generously.


As always please leave in-date food donations in the basket in church. Thank you to everyone who supports Polly. Chris Drake (340057)

Books for Duns Tew

Last year on 1st May we launched the successful ‘Books for Duns Tew’ venture in the church meeting room and since then it has gone from strength to strength. ‘Books for Duns Tew’ is based on the ‘Books for London’ scheme where we invite you to leave a book that you’ve enjoyed on the shelves for someone else to read, and take away another book that takes your fancy.

No joining fee, No charge, No forms to fill in!

There is a good selection of books, including the latest bestsellers for both adults and children.

The church is open during daylight hours – more or less! When you get inside the church, walk down the aisle and at the bottom turn left to the meeting room where you will find the books.

Do turn the lights on, so that you can see, but please turn them off when you leave.

This venture is organised by the PCC of St Mary Magdalene Church
