    Commemoration to mark the beginning of the

    Battle of the Somme

    7.30pm Thursday 30th June 
    Together with Banham Parish Council, St. Mary's Church Banham is holding a service to commemorate the Battle of the Somme - a vigil of poetry, music and prayer. We will remember, in humility before God, an event which symbolises the tragic futility of the First World War and the awful realities of conflict which still plague the world today. We will pray for the leaders of the nations who are caught up in war and commit ourselves to working peaceably together for good in our villages.

    Banham Bat Night

    Saturday 6th August 2016

    Licensed ‘batman’, Phil Parker, will give a talk about the bats living in St. Mary’s Church. He has conducted a survey to advise on the potential effects of the planned church repair works on our resident bat populations. There will be a live bat watch highlighting the activity in the porch. We hope fostered bats will be on display. This is an amazing chance to learn about the results of Phil’s survey, why bats and their roosts are protected and much, much more.
