Ride+Stride 2021

A little advance notice about Ride+Stride: This year, our community at St James will be doing two separate efforts.
1) cycling: Rev’d Tim plans to cycle a route taking in as many churches in our Deanery of Stonehenge as he can on Saturday 11th September, and invites any keen cyclists to join him. More detail to follow on his intended setting off time from St James.
2) walking: we plan to walk from St James, over to Holy Trinity, and then along the road to visit the chapel in South Tidworth and then back again over the hill via the scenic route. This will happen on Saturday 18th September, one week after the official Ride+Stride date because locally we have the flu vaccination drive happening on the 11th, and a lot of our keen walkers will be going to that then. However, we have arranged for the churches on our walking route to open for us on our revised date of the 18th. Again, our setting off time is to be confirmed. The more the merrier-all welcome!

Please sponsor our efforts! The money is split equally between church ministry and the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust. You can donate online here: https://pay.collctiv.com/ridenstride-62553 All donations gratefully received.

Rev’d Tim’s Sponsored Bike Ride!

We are in the final week before Rev’d Tim sets off on his sponsored bike ride of 70miles in aid of our stained glass window project! Please sponsor Tim, either online here: https://pay.collctiv.com/tims-sponsored-bike-ride-1971 or by putting your sponsorship through the door of the Rectory at 10 St James Street.
You might also like to join us in the late afternoon of Sunday 13th June when we will welcome Tim in the churchyard at the completion of his ride for coffee and cake. Exact timing will be advertised on this page on the day, but we think it will be between 4pm and 5pm. Or ride the final stretch from the layby at Wellington Academy to the churchyard to support him. Again exact timing on the day.
All in aid of a once in a generation installation of stained glass to celebrate our place of Ludgershall and God’s goodness to us. Amazing!
