Down St. Mary


Lent Evening Prayers. Our Lent evening prayers have drawn to a close. Thank you to Fred, Heather, Roger and Lindsey for leading these short reflective Mid-week services. It was obvious that a lot of work went into the preparation, which gave us  different perspectives on the theme of Lent  to assist in our reflections and our own preparations for Easter. Our next series of Mid-week services will be during Advent!


Mothering Sunday. On Sunday 30th March we held a Mothering Sunday service at our Church, even though it was a 5th Sunday. Each Church within our Mission Community had the opportunity to celebrate this special day in our own parishes. The service was Lay Led by Nigel Fidock and Heather French delivered the homily. Near  the end of the service, posies were distributed to members of the congregation. After the service fellowship continued with a glass of sherry and a slice of simnel cake which was enjoyed by all. Thank you to Jan, Heather and Maureen for preparing the flowers. Additional flowers were placed on the graves of mothers in the churchyard.
