Friday 4th September – Icon of the Day

‘who is the third that walks always beside you?

When I count, there are only you and I together

But when I look ahead up the white road

There is always another walking beside you

Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded

I do not know whether a man or a woman

But who is that on the other side of you?’

T S Eliot – from ‘The Waste Land’

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we give thanks for all who have offered encouragement over the past months.


Please donate if you can!

In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with Services in church cancelled, we no longer receive income from collections, 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, as those before us have done down the centuries, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':

Thank you!


If you would like to contribute to these reflections, please do email Katherine Cox at
