Welcome to St Mary's Overton

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.

Rev’d James Russell

JoyZone

.... is the family club organised and run by the Overton Churches Together.

JoyZone is going GREEN for June!

Instead of our usual monthly session, JoyZone will be held on Sunday 9th (not 2nd), 3 - 4:30 pm, at St Mary's Churchyard (please note the change of date and venue). This is to coincide with the start of Big Green Week.

The whole of the session will be outdoors, so please come dressed according to the weather on the day (sunscreen, waterproofs etc.)

As usual, there will be games, competitions, crafts, art, snacks, songs, stories and lots of fun to be had for the whole family.

The theme for Joyzone this month is looking after God's beautiful creation.

All are welcome, whether you have ever been to JoyZone before or not, whether you believe in God or not. No need to book, nothing to pay, just come along and have some GREEN JOY!"
