Remembering HRH Prince Philip

The Church will be open tomorrow (Saturday), Monday and Wednesday between 10am and 12noon for anyone who wishes to find some quiet and peace to pray, reflect, light a candle and give thanks. Sunday’s in-person service will also take time to mark his death.

We have just been notified that we are now being discouraged from having physical Books of Condolence, so if you would liked to have written something, you can go to the Church of England’s website and record comments there. If you feel this is too impersonal, then email them into the office and we will, in due course, enter those comments into a Condolence book which we had prepared, and then send the book on.

Do be praying for the Royal Family and their wider circle of friends at this difficult time.

Heritage Fund Grant
We are really delighted to say that St Mary’s has been awarded a Heritage Fund Grant of £25,000 from the government’s £1.57 billion Covid-19 Recovery fund. This is specifically for the repair of the buttress on the north west wall. As many of you know, St Mary’s is a grade 1 listed Church and the grant is only available to Heritage buildings. This makes a massive difference in enabling us to continue to care for the building we all love, so we’re grateful both to the
government, and to Hazel Black and Chris Puddle, who put
so much work into the application.

Health & Safety Leader
We need someone to take on the role of Health and Safety leader for St Mary’s.
If you are interested in finding out more about this role, please contact Caroline Titford.

Sleep Well with the Daily Hope Phone Line
Last year the national church launched a freephone, 24 hour, telephone service called Daily Hope, where people can ring in for daily encouragement, prayers, music and exercise. They have now added ‘sleep well with daily hope’, it is a series of gentle and relaxing reflections to help you sleep.
