A first for CADS

Charlbury Amateur Dramatic Society’s reading of “Shen Teh Gets a Visit” at St Mary’s Church on the 29 of April was a very successful first, not only for CADS but, we hope and believe for St. Mary’s. Our company enjoyed performing in the space. The scale of the building itself is an exciting challenge and a wonderful aesthetic opportunity. A particularly pleasing aspect of the event was the involvement of our audience in a lively discussion following the reading. CADS are particularly grateful and impressed by the open and welcoming stance of those who manage, run and support St Mary’s as not only a place of worship but as a focus of an open and engaged community.

MACH1 Childrens Choir – week 2

The new MACH1 Children’s Choir continued on Friday 27th April – the children had a great time enjoying the pizza and singing. All children in school years 3 – 7 are welcome.

MACH1 Children’s Choir

It’s for children in school years 3 – 7. we are allowing keen children from year 2 to join. £20 for 10 weeks. By the end of the term we hope to be able to perform at least some of the children’s musical ‘David’s Rock, (Goliath’s Roll). This will be sung during the Messy Church on 1 July, as part of the service. See you Friday! More information from the Parish Office.
