HEART - Sunday 10th October 4pm - 6pm

Heart 4 Rudloe meets on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, between 4pm and 6pm, and everyone of any age is welcome (children must bring an adult to look after them). The afternoon includes craft, tea drinking and Lego building. This is followed by prayer, a story and songs.  We round off the afternoon with some food (a light meal).


This activity is free, and is being run as part of the work of the Church of England in Box Parish.  Please do come along and join us as we make, pray and eat in the MOD Corsham Community Centre on Leafy Lane.


Box Filling Station on Tuesday 12th October

This month we are pleased to welcome back Rev Andrew Evans as our speaker. Andrew is Priest-in-Charge of Broughton Gifford , Great Chalfield and Holt, St Katherine’s. He is passionate to see God’s Kingdom come here in Wiltshire, to see churches healthy and growing, and to see the Gospel proclaimed, alongside signs of the Kingdom. With Helen Begley, he has formed Gateway Christian Healing, which seeks to resource churches in the healing ministry in the locality.


The Filling Station is an informal “café style” evening in the Box Methodist church building on Box High Street. Come at 7.15 pm for coffee and cake, to start at 7.30 pm with musical worship, followed by Andrew’s talk and an opportunity for prayer, concluding at about 9.30pm
