Overton Churches were delighted to be invited to contribute to the online February festival 'Love Overton'. Visit the Facebook page Light Up Overton 2021 and enjoy the programme!
Although this now has the word Women’s absent from its title it’s still a world-wide, interdenominational organisation run by women, but now for the whole Church. Each year, women from different countries write the material and invite prayer for their specific needs. This year it is from Vanuatu – a group of islands in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, which used to be called the New Hebrides.
Because of the current restrictions, things will have to be a bit different this year. We have been urged by the head of the WDP International Committee to connect in some way to the service, so in Overton, it will take the form of a Zoom call, lasting roughly an hour. Those who are unable to take part in Zoom will have the opportunity to read through the service and pray at home at the same time as it is taking place. Orders of service booklets will be distributed to all who are interested.
Amy Roche, our curate, is the guest speaker.
If you would like to be part of this, or you know anyone who might like to connect in this way can you let Heather Oram or Julia Hodgson know.

We are a lively Anglican church for the whole village of Overton.
The church is made up of people at all stages on the faith journey and all ages and backgrounds.
There are good facilities for children and young people to enjoy their own activities. We make good use of our modern Church Rooms with midweek groups running for children and the local community.
