‘I am all at once what Christ is

Since He was what I am, and

This Jack, joke, poor potsherd

Patch, matchwood, immortal diamond

Is immortal diamond’

From: ‘That Nature is a Heraclitean Fire and of the comfort of the Resurrection’ by Gerard Manley Hopkins

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for those who have lost their jobs or livelihoods because of the virus, that they may be guided to alternative opportunities.


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
