Friday 15th October 2021 7:30pmWood Norton Church - Cine Pew All Is True

Friday 15th October, 7.30pm: All is True
Written by Ben Elton, this film imagines the elderly Shakespeare returning home to his wife and daughters after a massive fire destroyed the Globe Theatre. He is mourning his son, Hamnet, destined for brilliance, but who died as a boy.
Tiptoeing between fact and fiction, this reflective film amuses and entertains, and casts a wry light on women’s lot in the 17th century. Starring Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench and Ian McKellen.
Doors open at 7pm. Light refreshments. Bring your own cushions! There is no charge for this event.

 As a trial going forward for this summer, Licensed Lay Minister – Norman Johnson and your Church Warden – Celia Daniel invite everyone to:


This will not be following a traditional Sunday Service format but will provide our local community and visitors to come together and open up a topic / conversation with each other.  For example, this could be on Climate Change or Wildlife in the Church Yard.  So for 30 or 45 minutes or so, whilst enjoying your afternoon tea - table service, the conversation of interest will develop followed by, for those who wish, a “mini” moment of Worship & Pray will take place in Church.  This will begin on Sunday 30th May starting at 3pm.  We hope you can come along to either the tea only or both!
