Woodley Airfield Church (WAC) will join us for our Church Anniversary with the
URC Wessex Synod Moderator, Revd Clare Downing.
We hold an informal Sunday Evening Fellowship in the Stenner Lounge
on some of those Sundays where there is no service planned.
Once a month, usually the last Sunday, we join the service in the Lounge at The Chestnuts.
In addition our minister takes a service for residents at The Mount on the second Thursday of the month.

||Messy Church is suitable for young families and includes craft, games,
singing, praying and learning, and features refreshments.
From May 2011 we have been holding Messy Church on the second Sunday afternoon of the month, except August.|
||Free2B is an ecumenical new-wine-type service held in a different church every second month or so.
Free2B was last at Christ Church on 28th April 2013. It is next planned for 2014 as follows.|
- 23rd November at Woodley Baptist Church
There are also irregular joint services within Woodley, such as the Carnival service "Praise in the Park"
at the Memorial Ground (by Coronation Hall) in Woodford Park, Headley Road, in June.
This is a relaxed modern cafe-style early evening celebration starting with refreshments from 17:00.
It runs on the same day as Messy Church and runs parallel to the end part of Messy Church, and will
follow the same theme as Messy, but aimed for an older age-group. The service part will start as soon
as possible after the Messy service and will last about 30 minutes.
