Thursday 23rd July - Icon of the Day


Captain, long

Is the wind’s tongue

And cold your porridge.

Look up now

And dry your beard.

Teach me to ride

In my high saddle

The mare of the sea’

From ‘Salt’ by R S Thomas

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for June 2020, today we pray for those who go on holiday that they will be safe.


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


To keep up to date with how we continue the life of St Mary’s in these difficult times – including our ‘Icons of the Day’, Fr Jeff’s and Fr Piotr’s pastoral letters and reflections, weekly Zoom services and more – do please ‘like’ our Facebook page @StMarysTwickenham and bookmark our website
