Fund-raising gets under way

We were delighted to welcome a good number of people from across Dean Court and beyond to our Community Fun Day on 5 October, when we invited the community to help us raise money for the new church. 

We enjoyed barbecue food, teas with a lovely selection of cakes, and fruit dipped into a chocolate fountain. There were activities for children, including football on the church games area.  The Rocky Mountain Express went round the track collecting money for the church re-building.  The amount raised so far from the day is a wonderful £1,000!  

The following weekend twins Margaret and Rosemary gave a concert on the Paraguayan harp, supported by the Cumnor Community Choir. They raised £500 for the Rebuilding Project.  Well done! 


We are grateful to everyone who supported these events in many ways. Look out for more!

Gifts for homeless

We were able to send a trolley-full of food, toiletries, socks and underwear off to Homeless Oxfordshire in October, thanks to donations at the Harvest Festival services in the three churches in the parish and Cumnor Primary School.  The photo shows it being loaded up in St Michael's, Cumnor.

Care home supports Development Project


The newest care home in Cumnor parish is supporting our  rebuilding. Local resid-ents were invited to coffee in the home on Cumnor Hill, which has recently opened, in return for a donation to the St Andrew's Development Fund.  Chawley Grove, a luxury care home (run by Hamberley Homes), has rooms for 70 residents and has many plans for involve-ment in the community. In the picture is a group from the parish, with Michael Krasser, Chawley Grove's Community Relations Lead.
