WITTERSHAM CHURCH - ST JOHN THE BAPTIST
Wittersham Church
working in the community

We are part of a lively and caring village. As Christians in this community we welcome all people to our church St John the Baptist and aim to reach out to everyone, sharing the faith and love of Jesus Christ.


Coming events:-
Sunday July 14 Animal Service at Wittersham Church, 10.00 am for 10.30 am

Are you up for a challenge?
As a rural Parish we think more could be made of the Harvest celebrations so taking the idea from Battle and others, we would like to hold a scarecrow festival at Harvest time and challenge all the societies and individuals to make a scarecrow.  This is how it goes ….
 
All Scarecrows Welcome!
Scarecrows must be registered at the Rectory before Monday 23d September with a small donation for the Servery Fund.  Each entrant will be given a number which must be displayed with their scarecrow display along with the title of the Scarecrow.
 
There are no rules of type of scarecrow but please keep it tasteful.
 
Scarecrows should be displayed where they can be easily seen without blocking public footpaths.  Voting for your favourite scarecrow will open at 10 am Saturday 28 September and an online map with all the entrants, names and locations will be published on the church website and a paper version can be collected from the Rectory. 

Happy Scarecrowing!!
