A short, family-friendly service, with a light meal provided afterwards, is held every Sunday at 4.30pm during Term time. Inject a little joy into your Sunday evening!
Evening Worship & Takeaways
It’s not often in our parish that we get together for an evening service, and yet the evening is surely as sacred as the morning. This is bound to be a special time as we come together to worship and then eat.
Make a note of the time and place (5.00pm at Holy Innocents, Church St., Amberley) and we hope to see you there – visitors very welcome.
Plan to stay afterwards for takeaways – individual orders for fish and chips or Thai will be taken and placed before the service, ready to be collected and enjoyed at leisure afterwards. Please bring necessary cash.
It’s time for a break from blogging, so there will be no more posts here for a little while. However, the ‘Church services’, ‘About us’, and ‘Weddings’ pages on this site will be kept accurate and up to date, so you can still use them to find out when our next church service is and other important information.
The main programme for children and families is described on the ‘Children and families – Messy Church’ page, but in the next few months upcoming Messy Church events will be advertised via the Amberley Parish Facebook page
Thank you ,and see you again soon.
