Our wonderful church team are once again opening the doors at Forton Primary School to welcome all-comers to our Harvest Messy Church celebration.
Come and join us from 4pm to 6pm tomorrow, Saturday 6th October, for crafts, games, worship, food and fellowship. We would love to see you there!
Bring all your cleverest friends to our family quiz night, and it’s heads down at 7.30pm for the first question. All ages welcome! Tickets cost £3.00 per adult, children go free.
We are at Forton Village Hall for the evening, and the ticket price includes a hot potato pie supper.
Don’t miss this great family event; we are looking forward to discovering the amazing skills and astounding knowledge of all our participants. We aim to finalise the prize winners by 9.30pm, and you can round off the evening with a drink from the donations bar.
It’s September again, and the month when our children and young people return to their studies, or perhaps start a new school, college or university!
Well done for getting this far, and we hope you enjoy every minute of the opportunities this coming year will offer.
We are holding a special open-air event tomorrow, Sunday 2nd September, on the playing field next to the bowling green, at 10.30am.
The service will be followed by a barbecue lunch. Please do join us, everyone is truly welcome!

Forton enjoyed it’s annual field day on Saturday 30th June, with fantastic weather and lots of family fun. Most importantly, it also saw the crowning of our new rose queen, Grace.
Sunday also dawned bright and sunny, perfect weather for Grace to celebrate her inauguration within the welcoming fellowship of St. James.
Grace was ably supported by her retinue, and they all looked absolutely stunning. We wish them all the best for the coming year, and we feel sure they will represent our village well.
Now on display in St. James church, artwork by Forton’s own artist Steven Hunt, is now on sale. This prolific artist is displaying his God-inspired creations of the last 10 years.
The pieces are all offered for sale without a price label, in recognition of the fact that admirers of Steven’s work may not be able to pay a specific price – instead, buyers are being asked to donate whatever amount they are able to. Every single penny raised will go towards the St. Pauls graveyard drainage project.
Members of the congregation both young and old were delighted to be able to see Steven’s work over the last decade, and some of the paintings have already been sold.
It’s not too late to see Steven’s work for yourself – and possibly grab a bargain too! His exhibition will be continuing over the next few weeks. Visit St. James church at the normal service times (click here for details) and you will receive our usual warm welcome. If you can’t get to the church within our normal opening times, please contact the vicar by clicking here, as it may be possible to accommodate your visit at another time.
In the next few weeks, unique pieces of art brought to life by St. James Artist-in-Residence, Steven Hunt, will go on display in the church.
All the artwork will be on sale, and every penny raised will go towards the graveyard drainage project.
However, none of the pieces will display a price; Steven is leaving it to people’s discretion and generosity to give as much as they are able, to support this important project for our local community.
Come in to the church for a browse around Steven’s lovely and thought provoking creations.
