St Mary's Church

St Mary's Church was buzzing with visitors as it celebrated Heritage Sunday when a display of needlecraft had been arranged by the Friends of St Mary's.

Intricate cross stitich pictures, tapestry, knitting, embroidery, quilting and crochet were amongst the items on show with demonstrations of lace making and teddy bear construction holding the visitors interest.

Music on organ and guitar was supplied by two young sisters, the bell tower was open and as always the Friends supplied delicious tea and cakes.

The day had begun with sung Morning Prayer using the Canticles and readings from King James' bible.

Brian Pretty will be speaking at the 11.15a.m.service on 25th September giving an update on his work in Uganda. Harvest Festival will be celebrated on Friday 30th September at 7pm  and continued at the monthly Family Service at 11.30am two days later. All are welcome.
