I'm the first to admit that I'm not particularly artist, so I need yor help to create banners and buttons for my summer event.
As a thankyou all who provide a banner/button for use during 'Music Through The Pages' will be entered to win a copy of 'What A Performance' by Reginald Frary, as well as getting an extra entry into the main event giveaway.
One banner and one button will be chosen for use during the event, and I'll select one of these to receive the book prize.
To enter, simply design a banner or button, post it somewhere where I can see it, and then fill in the rafflecopter below:

Today's Messy Church (at All Saints Church, Abingdon) is an Olympics special. We're going to be focusing on sport and sporting skills as we think about how we are all part of God's Team.
There will be no service as such today. Instead we'll parade into the church, Olympic ceremony style, then undertake a series of games and challenges for the whole family.
We'd love it if you'd join us! Hope to see you there!
