A Service of Celebration
This Sunday, 15th July, we are holding a special service of celebration in St. Kenelm’s Church, Enstone at 7.00 pm to mark all that we have achieved as a community in safeguarding and enhancing our beautiful building.
Join us for this milestone service in the life of our Church. The service is non-eucharistic and will be followed by refreshments and a glass or two of fizz.
Please note: we have changed the time of the service to 7.00 pm to allow those who want to watch the World Cup to be able to join us!
