posted 5 Jul 2018, 04:39 by CTH Webmaster   [ updated 5 Jul 2018, 04:42 ]

Due to England kicking off at 3.00pm on Saturday in the World Cup, we have decided to start the Funday at 1pm. This will mean an adjustment to the arrival times for volunteers - please could you arrive by 9.30am if you are helping with set-up, and 12.15pm if you are helping during the afternoon. We will still finish at 5pm as planned.

Please do let us know asap if this will be a problem. You can contact the Funday Administrator, Peter Hart by email or leave a message on 01865-763572. 

Holy Trinity Autumn Course, "Nothing More and Nothing Less"

posted 21 Jun 2018, 04:27 by CTH Webmaster

An interesting sounding course is being held this Autumn at Holy Trinity, Nothing More and Nothing Less. The course is based on the award-winning film I, Daniel Blake, and each of the six named sessions will include clips from the film.

It will provide an opportunity to question why so many people in our society suffer extreme hardship, and to examine the causes of injustice and oppression– and what we as a church could do in response.
The course will be held over six sessions, at both 2:30 and 7:30pm.

* Tuesday 11: Viewing of the whole film. 

* Tuesday 18: Systems of Oppression 

* Tuesday 25: Staying Human 

*Tuesday 2: Compassion in the Darkness 

* Tuesday 9: Fighting Back or Giving In? 

* Tuesday 16: The Suffering Servant

If it's the summer then the Headington Funday must be happening soon!  We are delighted to offer the 13th Headington Funday in Bury Knowle Park from 2-5pm, all completely free, as the churches' gift to the community. 

This year's offering includes the favourites: BBQ & Tea Tent, balloon modelling, face painting, bouncy castle as well as a giant inflatable obstacle course, tug-of-war, cakes, bang-a-nail, live music, juggling, giant games & lots more!

Our hard working team is entering the final phase of preparation and we look forward to welcoming all our visitors, new and returning, to our annual afternoon of fun in the sun.  Well, we are also praying that the weather holds and you can join us in prayer at an evening devoted to prayer for the Funday, on Friday 29th June, 7.30pm at Cornerstone Church (2 Quarry High Street, Headington, OX3 8JT). If you can come along, even for a short while, that would be fantastic.

We also welcome volunteers to help us on the day with the set up, stall management, and take down. If you can offer any time to help with this, then the Rev. Paul Clarke would love to hear from you. You can email or call 01865-763572 or sign up online here.

New Initiatives @ Lime Walk Methodist Church

posted 10 Oct 2016, 05:06 by Christine Tucker   [ updated 26 Jan 2018, 03:20 by CTH Webmaster ]

Two exciting new activities have started up in Lime Walk Methodist Church Hall in New High Street. Both will be of special interest to those of you of more ‘mature’ years…which means that if you are between 50 and 100+ you’ll fit in just fine!

The first initiative is ‘Feelgood Fitness’ which describes itself as ‘gentle exercise for those who want to go home with a grin…not a grimace!’. So, whether you’d prefer to take your exercise seated in a chair, or up on your toes, this session -- led by an experienced, qualified instructor – is for you! Now meeting on Thursday mornings in the Church Hall. Each session will last approximately 45 minutes leaving us plenty of time for refreshments and a chat. The cost is just £2.50 per person…good company is provided at no extra charge!

The second initiative is our 'New High Street Tuesday Drop-in' which will run weekly from 2pm – 4pm. It may be that you just want to come along to sit quietly and chat with a few friends, or perhaps you’d rather tackle one of our table top games, browse the daily newspapers or pit your wits in a big screen nostalgia quiz. All this…and much more will be available!

For more information on either of these activities, contact Malcolm Bromhall ( Pastoral & Outreach worker) on 07887 947 569, or email him at
