Welcome to Pews News  22nd August

Hands - Face - Space
Stay safe and think of others.

Our thanks go to all who have given so much and worked so hard to make our summer fete a great success and raise nearly £1500 .  There are a few plants still to buy, which will be in the church porch on Sunday. Donations can be put into the church collection plate.

Everybody Welcome

Everybody is invited to come to a series of 4 meetings starting on 18th September to explore what a welcoming church looks like, and how we at St. Mary's can be the best welcoming church ever.
We will cover four topics
1  Discover - making the church more visible
2  The premises - making them more inviting
3  Welcoming - God and his welcoming people
4   Belonging - to the church community
The session lasting 1.5 hours will be on Saturday afternoons in and around our church.
We need as many people as possible from the different strands of our church to come and help shape the future of St. Mary's

Please sign up on the lists church and come to as many as possible.

Welcomers Wanted

As we get back to our usual style of worship, we want to regroup our welcomers who have taken a back seat during Covid.  Some are not taking up their roles again so we are looking for new members to help once a month before and after the service. Please talk to your churchwardens  Cathy and Colin, if you can offer some welcome and help.

Mens' and Ladies' Breakfast UPDATE

September will see the start of the Ladies' and Mens' breakfasts again at the Harvester. It will be a bit different in that everything will be brought to the table by waiting staff. There will probably not be the usual wide choice of cereal, yogurt, and fruit but pretty much everything else will be the same. 

A cooked breakfast will be £5.99 and continental £4.49. 

‘Men’s Breakfast is back! Same place same time. 9am for 9.15am on Saturday 11th September at The Harvester, 1 Riverfield Drive. Look forward to seeing you for food and chat and some ‘words of wisdom’.

Please sign up on the sheet on the table or see or ring/text Michael Barker on 07906 505287.’
