Church Service - Sunday at 10.30am

 An informal service at St Mary’s celebrating St George and all things English. Enjoy songs, readings and poems. You can also join in the fun of acting the story of St George and his heroic battle with the fire-breathing dragon that was terrifying the population.
The service will last around half an hour, with coffee and special biscuits afterwards. Everyone is very welcome.

An Eventful Afternoon - Sunday 2pm-5pm

Traditional games for all ages including rubber ducks, Aunt Sally, skittles, roll-a-penny and coconut shy. The Great Horwood Silver Band will play throughout the afternoon. There’s a chance to learn about the history and special features of the church with guided tours. The bellringers will be ringing, explaining about the bells and their history and how you could learn to ring. There’s a Tombola and, of course, tea and cakes. Entry is free, but there will be a small charge for some of the activities and £2.50 for the teas.
