Ross Parishes are gearing up for a week brimming with community spirit and activities for all ages. From morning prayers to craft sessions, the calendar is packed with events that cater to diverse interests.

Kicking off the week, every day at 9am, community members can join a Zoom Morning Prayer session, a digital way to connect and reflect with fellow parishioners. For those looking to start their Tuesday with some warmth, St Mary’s Hall is the place to be between 9am and 11am for 'Tea and Toast'. The hall will also host the Community Larder during these hours. Additionally, on the fourth Tuesday of every month, the 'Just B Bereavement Support Group' meets at St Mary’s. Their next gathering is slated for 26th September at 2.30pm.

Parents with toddlers can head to St Mary’s on Wednesday at 8.45am for 'Toddle and Toast'. Craft enthusiasts can join the Craft Group at St Mary’s from 11am to 12.30pm, which meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. For those seeking spiritual reflection, the 'Ponder and Pray' session on Zoom is available on the first and third Wednesday of the month at 11.15am.

Thursdays are equally eventful. The first Thursday of every month at 3.30pm, St Mary’s hosts the 'Messy Church'. For those seeking a moment of spiritual solace, a Eucharist service is held at St Mary’s at 10am. This is followed by a Prayer Group session on Zoom at 11.45am. Young music enthusiasts can join the Youth Choir at St Mary’s, also at 3.30pm.

Sunday, 17th September, promises a spiritual start with an 8am BCP Communion Service at St Mary’s. This is followed by a live-streamed Sung Eucharist at 9.30am. Parishioners can also attend the Parish Eucharist at Walford at the same time. The week culminates in a grand 'Church Together Harvest Celebration' at The Venue at 1.30pm.
