HOPE Street is a family congregation that runs on the first Sunday of every month from Wychwood CE Primary School.
The Anglican church and Wychwood Bapist church started last February by inviting children, with a parent or grandparent, to a week of song, games, story and craft.
The week included a parenting slot where mums and dads could sit together with drinks and biscuits and talk about the pressures they faced.
This was led by the Revd Kate Stacey.
The event was run by the Revd Graham Stacey, from the Anglican church and John Witts, the Baptist minister during half term.
The week saw 85 people altogether, with many having such a good time they stayed for more than they originally pre-registered for.
The week was followed up with a similar event at Easter when 120 people gathered to hear the Good Friday story, ready to go to church on Sunday to hear how it ended.
The next family congregation event starts at 4pm on October 6 and will finish with a sandwich tea.
