‘…take my hand that is

Of the bone the island

Is made of, and looking at

Me say what time it is

On love’s face, for we have

No business here other than

To disprove certainties the clock knows’

From R.S. Thomas ‘Countering’

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for all those we meet today.


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
