All at Sea is this years theme for the Scarecrow Competition.  Please get in touch with me if you want to be involved in making a scarecrow.  It would be good to have something at church as well as individual entries in our gardens.  Ros

Ephesians Readings: Starting last Sunday, and for the next few weeks, we are reading and preaching through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, roughly a chapter each week.  It has been described as “the crown of Paul’s writings” and I hope we will deepen our understanding of the hope we have in Jesus and our joy as we live out that hope as part of his new community, the church.  You may find it helpful to read and reflect on the letter in your own times of prayer as we explore together what God is saying to us through his word at this time.  God bless.  Phil

Edward Scott says ‘I would like to thank all those who sent cards or attended the Recital at St Margaret’s to celebrate my 90th birthday. It was a wonderful occasion and I was delighted to see so many from St Mary’s. I hope you enjoyed it. I certainly did.’


Singers and Musicians Wanted! Andrew is appealing to anyone who wants to join the St Mary’s singers to come along to a new regular rehearsal slot. The singers meet at 4pm every alternate Thursday in Church. Rehearsal will last an hour maximum. All abilities and ages welcome. It’s all very informal but the singers provide a great support to leading worship, so all are very welcome! Andrew is also appealing for any musicians, of whatever instrument, to come and join us for Praise in the Park on Sunday 18 August. He will provide all music and would love any interested parties to contact him on as soon as possible.
