We welcomed Bishop Toby to two of our services on Trinity Sunday, where he preached about how we are invited to join in the dance of the Trinity at our service of Holy Communion, then launched us into a fascinating group discussion about what the Trinity meant to us at Tea & Toast – accompanied by Trinity Sundaes made by our congregation during Lizzie’s talk. It was a
real pleasure to see our Bishop again.

St Mary’s Events during Burley Summer Festival

Praise in the Park with Churches Together: Sunday, 18 August 2019, 10-11am in Grange Park. All are welcome to come along to a joint outdoor praise service by the Churches Together in Burley. Please bring a chair or rug to sit on as we worship together in community.

During the festival, look out for an ‘art attack’ on the pavements round Burley as the church finds a new way of getting the message of God’s love across to our village.

Goldies are holding a special sing -a -long on Thursday August 22nd, 2-3pm at the Parish Centre. (This is during Festival week instead of the second Thursday).

Visit St Mary’s to see the church’s entry in the Scarecrow competition.
