Easter Gardens

As we go through Holy Week why not make an Easter Garden? Let us show the story of Easter by displaying one outside our homes or maybe something in your window. We have a wonderful message of hope and new life. Attached is a sheet which gives some simple instructions to help. Have a go and send photos to the POTR Facebook or Twitter page or email to the Parish Office – How to make an Easter Garden

Good Friday Scavenger Hunt

We are hosting a Good Friday Scavenger Hunt – why not go for a walk and follow the Easter Story and collect some  things along the way? You will need this booklet which tells the story and gives the instructions and come and collect your prize from either St Lawrence Churchyard or Holybourne Churchyard between 2 and 4pm. Don’t miss it! Good Friday Scavenger Hunt Booklet

New Fresh Start Course from Christians Aginst Poverty

For some people, Lockdown has meant they spend more time and money on a life-controlling habit such as smoking, gambling, over-eating, internet addiction, online shopping,  drinking, or taking drugs.  Fresh Start helps you tackle such a habit.  It’s an 8-week course pioneered by Christians Against Poverty (CAP), based on principles from the Bible and the 12-steps-of-recovery process, backed by 1-to-1 coaching and a support group of others wanting to tackle their dependencies.  It’s free and completely confidential.  For more information, see A new Fresh Start course will begin on Monday…
