Link to the Benefice of Lower Wylye and Till Valley Website

We have provided a permanent link to the Benefice of Lower Wylye and Till Valley Website in the “Village Directory” section of this website.   This will give you access to electronic versions of the two magazines produced on behalf of the parishes within the benefice:  “The Messenger” and “Lower Wylye and Till Valley Parish Magazine”.  We note that the latter, being of most value to villagers of Winterbourne Stoke, is produced in OpenDocument Text (.odt).  You should be able to open this with most modern word processor packages, but please let us and the Benefice know if you are unhappy with this format and would prefer Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf).

CANCELLED – St Peter’s Church: Spring Cleaning Working Party – CANCELLED

CANCELLED – The Parish Church Council regret that the following event has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for later in the summer.

The Parish Church Council and Churchwardens of St Peter’s Church Winterbourne Stoke are planning to have a spring cleaning working party from 10am – 2pm on Saturday 19th May and hope that as many from the village as possible will join in.

Refreshments will be provided and everyone will be very welcome.

Family Service at St Peter’s this Sunday 2nd April @ 10.30 am

We shall be starting our Family Services at St Peter’s Church this Sunday 2nd April and will, we hope, continue thereafter on the 1st Sunday of the month.
The service is short (probably 40 minutes) with popular, well known hymns (at least we hope they are and after the 1st Sunday people will be asked to choose hymns) and readings from the Lion Bible (simple English).
There will be crayons and paper for children who might wish to contribute something  (or just need to scribble because they are bored).
Yvonne Allen, Lay Reader, will be taking the service – we are very fortunate to get her on a regular basis.
We hope that this will suit those who are and those who are not regular church goers and provide an opportunity for people to get together and meet each other.
There will be tea/coffee for adults and juice for the children & biscuits for both after the Service.
