Christian Aid Week is here! Last year we raised £1,340 so this year we have set a target of £1,500. Please give generously to this worthy cause to help us to achieve this goal.

Giving envelopes are available at the back of the church. Please take one and return it with your donation next week. You can also donate online through St Mary’s own Christian Aid e-Envelope at

Our annual parish meetings will be held at 11.30 am, after the morning service on Sunday 22 May. These are an opportunity for those in the parish to have their say in how their Church is run, and include a summary of the year, reports from key people and a chance to ask questions, as well as the election of roles such as deanery synod representatives and members of the PCC.
