St Mary’s Church, Potton, is proud to support the work of St John’s Care Hospice at Moggerhanger by allowing a monthly Parish Lunch to be held in the Church Hall free of charge to the lunch organisers. This is usually at 12-45pm on the last Friday of each month and raises, on average, £3000 a year for the Hospice by providing a range of delicious Home Cooked Lunches to about 60 people, all for a very modest charge. If you haven’t been to one of these lunches and want to know more about it or would like to help, please contact Dave Thompson.

Rev Gill - Services in March
The Rev Gill is starting to gently take the helm again after her illness. We are
very pleased that Gill feels well enough now to start taking services again and with
this change away from the gloomy weather to a more Spring like phase, we hope it
will help Gill to a full recovery but please continue to pray for her.
