‘Be glad. Celebrate! Lose your mindless fear and take courage today. No, don’t ever be afraid, no matter what has happened to you before. That is right, do not be afraid, no matter what you may see coming. Take courage because Christ was crucified for you.’
Attributed to Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for all who help the distressed, homeless and the needy.
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':
