Dear Congregation and Friends of St Mary,
Newsletter. Please find attached this week’s Benefice Newsletter and associated documents from Lucy. Richard Fergusson has written a lovely piece about Mothering Sunday, which is definitely worth a read.
Opening Up of Churches. The plan is still for St Mary to be open for public worship from Sunday 4th April with an Easter Day Holy Communion. The church will now also be open every Wednesday for private prayer. See the Newsletter for timings.
Mrs Sylvia Frankham – RIP. Thank you to everyone who contributed to Sylvia’s funeral last Wednesday but especially to Norma and Richard. It was a lovely service which was livestreamed and seen in various countries around the world. It is still available to view on the Benefice Facebook page.
Online Services. As usual the details of the online services for this Sunday can be found on the Benefice Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/shrivenhamandashbury/.
Church Grounds. Many thanks to all those individuals who have been tidying up the flora and fauna in the churchyard. It is really looking beautiful and well worth visiting whilst taking some lockdown exercise.
