Thought for the Week
Remember and Reflect
Chris our Lord, as we take bread and wine today to remember your death with deep gratitude, help us to reflect on how we should live our days in the light of such sacrifice and your gift of eternal life.
Friends of St Helen's
This is now up and running. A bank account is now open and donations to this fund are very welcome. All money received will be put to the fabric and restoration of St Helen’s Church. Please speak to Jim Proctor for more details.
St Mary's Church
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
St Mary’s Market
The market is open every Wednesday 10.30am - 1.00pm and Saturday 10.30am - 2.00pm in St Mary’s church hall. Please come and have a browse, you might ﬁnd just the thing you have been looking for.
