Part of our link province of Melanesia has been hit by a natural disaster.
In early May, Vanuatu and the Banks and Torres Islands were seriously
affected by a devastating storm—Cyclone Donna.
Many homes and other buildings have been damaged and destroyed, there is a lack of safe drinking water, and planting areas have been washed away. Food supplies are expected to run out in June.
The Melanesian Mission UK (MMUK) has launched an appeal to raise money for the Anglican Church of Melanesia to provide emergency supplies. The Diocese of Chester are sending a contribution.
If you would like to make your own contribution, MMUK has set up a
giving page for donations.
Christian Aid Week Campaign
Many thanks to everyone who has brought in envelopes for Christian Aid. So far we have raised £687.81.
If you haven’t yet donated, please bring your envelopes back by next Sunday, 4th June or put your
donation into the Christian Aid
collecting box at the back of Church.
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.
The Mews is currently closed for refurbishment.
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.
St Mary's Singers meets three times each year to perform special concerts and services.

Our involvement with Whitegate Primary School has enabled us to build relationships with the young people and provide a safe environment within which they can meet and continue the friendships forged at Primary School when they move onto High School.
