    Mews Update

    You may have noticed that work is progressing well on The Mews.
    The Mews Committee are looking ahead at the next phase of the works and that is the purchase of new items.
    A ‘wish list’ of items that we require has been produced and a copy is
    available from the back of church or St Mary’s website.
    Please remember that for Health and Safety reasons the Mews remains a ‘No Go Area’ and  is Out of Bounds to non authorised personnel during the works.


    When you are doing your weekly shop please give a thought to those less fortunate than
    ourselves and buy an extra tin or packet and bring it to church on the Sunday and place it in the basket at the back of church.

    Mews Bookings

    The Mews is currently closed for refurbishment.

    Prayer List

    We welcome new names of those who are ill to be added to our weekly list for prayer. This is intended for a short to medium term prayer list.
    After two months names will be
    transferred to the vicars long term
    prayer list. You can of course request that the name goes back on the list for a further period.
    Regular updates would be appreciated about the condition of those who are sick.
    Please let the vicar or Linda Dutton know.
