christian aid May: VICAR CHALLENGE

Andrew has chosen…

  • Bake a Victoria Sponge which will be on sale in the shop from Monday 24th May. Proceeds to Christian Aid.
    The challenger will pay for the ingredients and donate £20.
  • And Beat the Bounds of the Parish of St. Mary’s.
    Anyone who wishes to join Andrew, the walk will start at 3pm at the Rectory on Sunday 30th May. Donations to join the walk can be made on

From the following List of Challenges:

  • Sit and read a book of fiction of Sarah’s choosing and display a review of it at the end of the month.
  • Listen to Andrew say The Lord’s Prayer in a foreign language (not Latin) and display it in that language.
  • Design an attractive poster for the Church (outside and inside notice boards) which says ” Welcome ” in a minimum of 25 languages, or preferably more than 30.
  • Bake a Victoria Sponge to sell in the shop. The challenger will pay for the ingredients and donate £20.
  • Do a reading of Scripture or of verses by your favourite poet.
  • Sit in the garden with a good book.
  • I would like to hear Andrew sing a song – whatever he chooses – religious or secular.
  • How about trying to eat food that’s produced in GB? It’s horrifying when you look at where carrots come from etc.
  • A ” Desert Island Discs ” type event. Andrew to be interviewed and select 7 discs. PLUS, he must sing a certain hymn that the challenger mentions. Contact Sarah for queries.
  • We challenge Andrew to follow the ancient tradition and beat the bounds of the Parish of St. Mary’s. A possible route would be from the Rectory through Rose Hill to the Southern by-pass, west side of the river, towpath to Donnington Bridge, perhaps stopping at Bridge Stores for refreshment, Meadow Lane, Rairacres Road, Parker Street, Daubeny Road, Iffley Road, Henley Avenue, Rose Hill, Southern by-pass, Rose Hill and back to the Rectory. We suggest that Andrew is accompanied by as many safely distanced people as possible, each contributing £5 or more, for the walk.
