Come and meet our church family, you'll find a friendly welcome. Our church is a great place for families and children and we are people who care for each other in the ups and downs of life.

A World Book Week Trail
Ottershaw CofE Schools are celebrating World Book Week from 1st March. Their theme is ‘Traditional Tales’ – and we are hoping you can help create a ‘Traditional Tale trail’ by leaving a clue to a character from a fairy story in your window, front garden or drive?
The children would do the ‘Traditional Tale Trail’ as part of their daily exercise looking for ‘clues’ to a traditional fairy story e.g. a bowl of porridge (Goldilocks) or picture of a character in a front window.
We are looking for the trail to be in Murray Road, Slade Road, Brox Road, Guildford Road, Chobham Road, Foxhills Road, Fletcher Road, Fletcher Close, Spratts Lane – and all the cul-de-sacs in between!
Please contact Chloe if you need any further information.
We have put together a document which helps to locate different organisations that may be of use to people & families during this crisis.
