HELP NEEDED!AbPassPlay19bepartofit 

The Abingdon Passion Play, at the heart of the Big Easter Event, is Abingdon Churches biggest combined community event. 

With more people involved the whole event will run safer, smoother and be more successful communicating the central message of Easter. We are looking for:

ACTORS - no experience needed, just 2 rehearsals on 24th March 2-6pm All Saints and 2.30-6.30pm 31st March Peachcroft

STEWARDS - be a friendly face and help keep people safe for some or all of the event. Full briefing and hi-vis provided. We need at least 12 more stewards for the event to run safely

PRAYER PARTNERS - please can we cover before during and after the event in prayer - we'll provide regular updates and prayer points.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST - people to distribute leaflets to as many homes as possible in Abingdon: this method ensures that everyone will have chance to hear about the event. Please collect as many bundles as you can conveniently manage.

Please contact Katharine de VIlliers 07768022684 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

With many thanks for your support!

Personal Testimonies of Faith Seeking Understanding

We explore the experience of handing on and receiving Christian faith – the basic meaning of the theological term ‘tradition’. Derived from the Latin word traditio, meaning a teaching or instruction that is handed down through time, ‘tradition’ is not so much “what we’ve always done” as the dynamic experience by which communities, and individuals within communities, ‘catch’ the faith through personal encounter with other believers.

Preparation for the New Church Electoral Roll 2019- St Helen's, Abingdon-on-Thames

The Electoral Roll is the basic list in every parish of all those entitled to vote in elections within the Church of England. Those entitled to have their names on this roll have to be 16 years of age or over and must reside in the relevant parish or be regular worshippers in the church whose roll they wish to join. Every six years, a new roll has to be prepared at which point all existing members have to re-apply for membership or else their names will not be included on the new Roll. This ensures that the Roll is kept current and up to date. Preparation for a new Roll will be taking place during February and March this year, so everyone who regularly attends a church or churches in our Parish is requested to apply for enrolment on the Church Electoral Roll.

Application Forms for completion are available from the Church Office or from the three churches in the Parish, St. Michaels, St. Nicholas and St. Helen’s. Each Church has a designated Electoral roll officer who will be coordinating this process.”

Meditations on the Death and Resurrection of Jesus

John Barton

Download a leaflet to print here

“Human life is unpredictable – full of sorrows that no one can foresee and of joys that come unlooked for. But Christians often see the life, death and resurrection as an exception to this rule.

You may have seen that the press has been covering the incident in the bell tower in January 2018. 

This matter is in the hands of solicitors.
