Dedication of Charlbury Community Centre

On Saturday, 9th September 2017, Revd Dr Sally Welch led a ceremony on behalf of Churches Together in Charlbury to bless the new Charlbury Community Centre. Kicking off a day in Charlbury that few will ever forget, Sally blessed water she had collected at the famous French pilgrimage site of Lourdes, and used it to bless the new building. In addition to praying for all that were involved in the building’s design, funding, and construction, she included its future users, saying “We pray for those who will share their enthusiasms and skills with others, those who come to learn, to relax, to engage with the community and beyond. May we work together to build up the community of Charlbury so that men, women and children may find fellowship and welcome.”


Many congratulations to Denise and Mike Summers on their Golden Wedding Anniversary!
