Friday 12th February - Icon of the Day
‘I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.’
From ‘Walden; or, Life in the Woods’ by Henry David Thoreau, 1854

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for the lonely and isolated, that they may feel able to reach out for help and that they may know God’s love.
In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with activities in our buildings greatly restricted, we no longer receive the previous level of financial support from collections at Services, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.
If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':
