We will be continuing to develop this page as times goes on to capture some of the different moments of our community life together that are not shown elsewhere on this site.
New Year Walk 2017
The year began with a group gathering for a New Year walk, which finished with warm drinks and lunch at a nearby pub.
SPAB Maintenance Working Parties
We are privileged to have four beautiful church buildings across Droitwich and it is important to us to do all we can to look after them. We regularly meet for 'Working Parties' to do routine maintenance. We also enjoy a coffee and often a bacon sandwich as a mid-work break.
This picture is taken at the top of St Peter's Church tower.
Holy Week & Easter 2017
We started the week with an incredible production of 'Jesus My Boy' by Worcester Rep Theatre Company.
We gathered for a Passover Meal guided through by CMJ, who helped us to think about the Jewish Passover and it's significance.
On Maundy Thursday we gathered together for a service which included foot washing, communion and chance for us to reflect together on the events that unfolded on that first Holy Week.
After the service the church was stripped and left silently before Good Friday.
On Good Friday we gathered with Churches Together in Droitwich for a Walk of Witness through the town before gathering in Victoria Square for a service together.
We then continued through the day with a series of services to help us to reflect together.
Our Easter Day celebrations begin each year with people from across the churches in Droitwich meeting up at St Augustine's for a Sonrise Service.
We then continued through the day with services across the Parish.
St Richard's Festival - April
Droitwich has lots of different festivals throughout the year. The St Richard's Festival takes place each year and includes a re-enactment of St. Richard blessing the town well. Here are a few photos (with our own Team Rector Nigel Byard playing the part of St. Richard). You can see more photos and find more about the festival and this part of Droitwich's story here.
Christian Aid Week - May
Each year we begin Christian Aid week with our Christian Aid Quiz Night. It always raises lots of money and is good fun with some healthy competitiveness too!
During the week the Christian Aid collection takes place along with the other Churches in Droitwich. A great way to support a great charity.
