Thought for the Week
Our gracious God, we thank you for the wonderful paradox that maturity of faith can only be reached through a childlike response to your love: You are our Father, we are your children; with simple trust we follow you.

St Helen’s Churchyard
Everyone is very welcome to go into the churchyard, but PLEASE take your rubbish home with you. We are ﬁnding water bottles, drinks cans, crisp packets etc, just left where they fall. Someone has to pick them up and dispose of them off site, as there is no bin collection. Please help us keep this a place of tranquillity and beauty, and respect for our loved ones buried there.
Rubbish at St Peter’s
Just to remind everybody. . . ...Flowers and green waste should go in the BROWN bin: disposable cups, including those used in church on Sunday’s should go in the GREEN bin, all other rubbish in the BLACK bin. Thank you
Friends of St Helen's

Walk the Wight
Nigel would like to thank all who sponsored him on Walk the Wight. In the region of £200.00 will be raised for the Hospice.
St Mary’s had a visit from A.E. Cultural Tours on September 8th. They were greeted by Rev. Alison. This is a holiday company that specialises in coach tours around the UK that visit places of historical note. Hopefully this is a sign that life is getting back to normal, and it would be good if St Mary’s is on their itinerary of regular visits
