Next weekend is our Flower Festival! Open throughout the day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, please drop in to see lots of wonderful floral creations! We will also have an evening of music and poems including a performance from The Blue Horizon Handbell Ringers with wine and nibbles on Friday at 7pm, and a Songs Of Praise service at 6pm on Sunday, not to mention Revd Jimmy Holden will preside at his first communion surrounded by flowers at our usual 10am Sunday morning service. Happiness is…seeing you there!
The service will start at the Market Cross outside the Queen’s Head at 10am. We look forward to welcoming Harry the Donkey (and Katy and Mike), who behaved impeccably with Stepping Stones toddlers and with Key Stage 1 of Castle Primary School for their Easter Service,
Come along to celebrate the Harvest! Our Harvest Thanksgiving Service is on Sunday 25th September at 10am. We will be welcoming donations of dried, tinned or fresh food at our service to distribute to those in need. Alternatively you can drop off donations by the church door, or in the porch of the Rectory. We will be having fun dressing the church for our celebrations on Saturday 24th September at 9:30am, if you would like to come and join in making the church beautiful using the produce of the harvest! Looking forward to seeing you this Harvest.
We now meet between 9:30 and 11:30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so come along and join the fun! Open to children under 5 and their carers all year round (unless we say otherwise on our Facebook page)
It’s our Patronal Festival on Sunday 24th July 2016, when we celebrate St James. Come along at 10am for a church-style birthday party. There will be games, there will be Gospel, there will be sharing bread and wine.
Come along and join the Magna Carta Celebrations this weekend

Make your own scroll and seal it with wax, write with a quill, colour a baron and make a shield of your own.
Learn about Ludgershall’s connection with King John. He was a regular visitor to Ludgershall Castle, took one look at the kitchens and declared them so last century that he had new ones built!
There will be refreshments too – taste a Medieval biscuit and see what you think of it – should there be a History Week in the Great British Bake Off?
Note that if you are planning to drop off donations of men’s warm clothing, please do so between 10 am and 12 noon on Saturday – we have to get the donations to Salisbury on Saturday afternoon in order to co-ordinate properly.
