About Water Orton
We are a small (just under 20 members) mature congregation with small BB Company. We have developed a number of successful outreach activities. such as a) "Open the book" bringing Bible stories to life at assemblies in the local primary schools, once a fortnight. b) Monthly worship hour + supper at the local OAP community Centre. c) A team visit the local nursing home to share stories food, once a fortnight, and hold a monthly act of worship entitled Sacred Space.
