Mothering Sunday, plus a Celebration!



The service of Holy Communion was led as usual by our Rector, the Rev Alex Wheatley. In his sermon, Rev Alex spoke of the repression of Christians in the Holy Land by the occupying Roman army and their cruel leaders who would order the execution of Christians to suppress their teachings and leadership. This drew a sharp comparison of the events over the last few weeks, of the suffering of the people of Ukraine, showing that recent events are not new but have happened over many hundreds of years. We prayed on Sunday for an end to the disasters and suffering that we see at this time.


St Mary’s Patronal Festival, Mothering Sunday and a special Anniversary

The Rev Alex will again lead the service of Holy Communion next Sunday, March 27th, but the parishioners from other churches in the Benefice, will also join St Mary’s congregation to celebrate St Mary’s annual Patronal Festival, Mothering Sunday and later, a bring and share event to celebrate the Rev Alex’s first Anniversary of becoming our Rector. Please join us at 10.30am if you are able.
