‘In the core of the Trinity
The Father laughs
And gives birth to the Son.
The Son laughs back at the Father
And gives birth to the Spirit
The whole Trinity laughs
And gives birth to us.’
Meister Eckhart [Eckhart von Hochheim, c. 1260 – c. 1328, German theologian, philosopher and mystic]

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, we pray for someone for whom we feel especial concern.
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':
