‘The crucified Jesus is the only accurate picture of God the world has ever seen.’
John Austin Baker (1928-2014)
Image: Shillito Cross, Ramsley Moor, Derbyshire; probably erected by monks from Beauchief Abbey (7.5 km to the NE) during the 13th Century as a navigation aid for travellers to outlying fields.
In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, on the day Spring begins, we give thanks for the miracle of God’s world and the seasons.
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':
