Music and Worship
After a period of many years in which our church bells were not able to be pealed, only chimed, we are delighted that they have been lovingly restored and we can provide bells for wedding couples once again, although we do need to call on some talented individuals to ring our 4 bells for us as we don't have a dedicated ringing team of our own - although it's on our wish list.
The acoustics in our church are wonderful for live music. We've had a few performances over the years and we're always up for talking to any artist or band who fancies performing here.
We are led to believe by experts who use it that our organ is not only particularly beautiful but is also rather tricky to play. Much work has been done on the organ in recent years to ensure its preservation for years to come.
‘‘SoW Good’ (SoW standing for Songs of Worship) was launched in May 2019. Comprising singers of all ages and abilities, they have performed a handful of times in the Benefice at services so far.
Groups, Courses and Activities
GIFT (which stands for ‘God is for Today’) is our group for young people from Year 6 to age 16 that meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month in the Church from 7pm-8.30pm. More information is available on the Benefice website ettington.org.
The Bible study group meets in a private residence in Ettington and is popular with members from across the Benefice. Contact Jane Evans on 01789 740446 if you are interested in joining the group. We meet on a Wednesday evening from 8pm-9.30pm). September 2018 saw the launch of the Benefice's Bible Book Club. If this is more up your street then feel free to join us on the first Monday of every month at 1.30pm for an hour in Ettington Church (may be moved for bank holidays etc).
Our 'Messy' services take place on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 11.15am. They are an informal event, with activities around tables that suit various ages (even adults!) and we round it all off with song, prayer and some refreshments.
