Saturday, 1 December - Christmas Card Delivery

St Marys Christmas Card 2018Please join us at 10am in the Hall to take part in this regular prayer opportunity. Each year we use Christmas and Easter to focus our prayer on each dwelling in the parish as we deliver cards through their doors.

The cards will be available for collection, so, if you can, please join in this initiative. The more who can help, the less work it is for each of us.

Tea, coffee and mince pies will be available as sustenance.

We look forward to Terry Puttick being with us again to speak about the work. The toys should be unwrapped, though separate wrapping paper would be appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.
