A prayer for vacancy

Heavenly Father, Good Shepherd of all,
during this time of vacancy at St Mary’s we ask that you
comfort those who worry,
strengthen those who carry the weight of responsibility,
support and guide the PCC,
inspire a priest with your calling to this ministry,
and stay near us as we continue to worship you
together in this place.

Real Easter Eggs

The only Easter egg which tells the full tale is back. Made from delicious Fairtrade chocolate and complete with an Easter story and activity booklet, the Real Easter Egg is available to order from James after the Sunday morning service or online at

"Preserve" the Pipes

On Sunday 10 March (Mothering Sunday) after the service there will be home-made marmalade (and other sweet treats) for sale in the Community Centre.

All proceeds will go towards the Organ Fund, keeping our pipe organ in good voice as it enters its 93rd year of filling St Mary’s with music.
