A lot happens over the church year. This page illustrates events that are occasional or annual that are not covered elsewhere.
We start with a short PDF slideshow of what used to happen before Covid struck, to give you a flavour of us as a church family. Click the blue link above.
2022 Easter Monday Ramble to Dunkery Beacon
Every year since 1963 there has been an Easter Monday Ramble (sometimes delayed due to weather or pandemics!)
(from left) Wondering how far down we are going; inside Stoke Pero church (where we sang a hymn); nice of the leader to find somewhere to sit down for lunch; on top of Dunkery Beacon (we did all get down safely!)

July 2022 – St James Church School – Leavers’ Service
It is our privilege to host the Leavers’ Service for the Year 6 pupils at St James Church School. Here is Dave our curate with a general view of the service, and a collage of snaps of some of the activities we run for the children afterwards. This year we had tours up the church tower, with an opportunity to try ringing a bell on reaching the ringing chamber, Eco Church activities in the churchyard, a quiz , and a demonstration by another Dave of the organ with some brave children having a go themselves. And our wonderful catering team turned out lunches for 60 pupils, plus teachers and the church team. Each pupil is given a booklet called “It’s Your Move” with with advice, activities and real-life testimonies drawn from 20 years’ experience of supporting children moving to secondary school.
