The Downs Benefice Summer Walks
19th to 24th August 2019
DON’T MISS OUT!
Put these dates into your diary and join us during our week
of walks this summer.
It is for all of the communities of Chilbolton, Crawley, Littleton, Sparsholt and Wherwell: all are welcome.
There will be six full-length walks of between 8.5 and 9.5 miles and also eight half-day walks of about 4 to 5 miles.
Two years ago, we had about 100 walkers who each walked on average 2.2 walks.
It is hoped that all five communities will support this initiative.

The Church of England offers three Marriage Services:
|1662 Book of Common Prayer: In traditional language
|1966 Book of Common Prayer: A modified version of the Book of Common Prayer service, (1966) as one of the Alternative Services: Series One
|Marriage Service from Common Worship 2000: in modern language, and reflecting the current Christian understanding of marriage. The Common Worship marriage service offers the most flexibility in the choice of readings and prayers, but in all three, you can be involved in choosing hymns and other music, for the service.
