Evensong at St Laurence
St Laurence, Winslow
Welcome to St Laurence Church
The people who make up St Laurence's are a vibrant community who love celebrating life in God and who try to be supportive to one another in good times and in bad.
Come and join us!
The restoration of the organ is now complete, and the vast majority of the funds have been raised. The organ will be used for the first time on September 1st.
Our grateful thanks go to anyone who has contributed towards the cost of the restoration, and we would like to welcome all to a special service of Evensong on September 15th at 6pm, which will be attended by the Bishop of Oxford, who will bless the organ and a new altar frontal.
