The Church Butterfly Colony

For many years, there has been a colony of Tortoiseshell Butterflies in St Mary’s, they live there near the Choir Vestry but if you see one fluttering by, don’t evict it as it will probably kill it!

Our Church Roof

By now I’m sure most people have heard that the Lead from our Chancel roof was stolen recently, damaging some of the stonework in the process. The Insurance assessor has advised that we will need  a roof alarm system otherwise future insurance may not be possible. With this in mind, ideas are needed to raise about £8000 for the alarm.

To donate, please use our Just Giving scheme:  http://bit.ly/29JwBps If you have any other ideas, please talk to a Churchwarden or the Rev Gill.

Rev Barbara Johnson retires from the County Fire Service

Our Fire Lady, the Rev Barbara Johnson, has been the Chaplain to Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service for the last 10 years, a post from which she has just retired. Rev Barbara will stay on at St Mary’s as our Priest on Attachment, but she has now accepted a new rôle as the Chaplain to the PTSD999 – Blue Hero Foundation. We wish Barbara well in this new venture which is to do with problems encountered by by Members of the Armed Forces injured in conflicts.
