In this Eucharist service, always held on the fourth Sunday of Lent, we honour Mary, Jesus’s mother and give thanks for all mothers and others who have mothered us. Our scouts and guides join us for this parade service.
Family Eucharist celebrating harvest and giving thanks for God’s generosity.
We usually collect donations on behalf of Welcare who would be particularly grateful for the following:
- Supermarket giftcards (which would allow Welcare to buy specific items)
- Donations of tinned meat and fish, packets of cereal, tinned fruit/desserts, tea, coffee
- Money (in an envelope) is always welcome
Our scouts and guides join us for this parade service.
Join us in commemorating those we have loved who have died.
If you would like to buy a Peace Lily in their memory for this service, please contact the Parish office by phone or email.
Please join us to remember those, on both sides, who served and died in the two world wars and conflicts since, and to pray for peace.
Our service begins at the war memorial outside St Lawrence’s church where uniformed organisations will be invited to lay poppy wreaths. Two minutes silence will be observed. We then continue inside St Mary’s Church.
Alternatively you may join the procession at the war memorial outside the Legion on the high street at 10am.
Bring your beloved pets to this joyful (and let’s be honest – somewhat chaotic) event to give thanks for the wonderful role that our animals play in our lives.
Please bring suitable leads, containers, pooper scoopers as required! All animals welcome – although horses may need to take part from outside.
Children may bring along any special toy animals for blessing too. It is a short service (for obvious reasons!)
We operate a volunteer-run ‘Lifts to Church’ scheme so please let us know if you need transport to church by calling the parish office.
