The church has close links with the local Methodist church and we have joint services and other events. We also play an active part in Churches Together in Broadway. Events include carols on the green at Christmas, a Walk of Witness on Good Friday, when a cross is carried from St. Saviour's down to the green for a service.
Our school assembly team draws people from several different churches, all united in the desire to present stories from the bible to children. We use a scheme called 'Open the Book', which tells the stories of the bible in a simple form that the children can understand. It is administered by members of the Diocese of Gloucester, another ecumenical link, and conforms to the legal requirements for school assemblies.
Lent lunches are held every Wednesday, in the Methodist Church Hall for the 6 weeks prior to Easter from 12 until 1.30. Soup and a roll, cheese and a drink are served for a £3.50 donation that goes to Christian Aid and Cafod.
Women's World Day of Prayer is held each year in a different church.
Our youth work is completely ecumenical with children from all churches and none, as are the helpers.

THE GOOD LUNCH CLUB These ladies have
supported our youth groups regularly - Cub Scouts, Brownies, Guides and Pilots -
by making donations to them at frequent intervals. Now they are asking for our
support - and it is a very pleasurable support they ask. Once every 8 weeks they
serve a home cooked meal to their guests in the Methodist Church Hall. Edna,
Stanley and I have been going regularly for years, but now they need more
guests. Once there were so many it was necessary to be given an
invitation, but now there are fewer regulars and YOU could be included if you
telephone Teresa on 01386 853941
The cost is £6 with a raffle ticket costing £1.
