Benefice Newsletter – Sunday 2nd May

Dear Congregation and Friends of St Mary,

Please find attached this week’s Benefice Newsletter and associated readings.

Sunday 2nd May – Morning Prayer at 9.30am in St Mary.  Tomorrow’s Morning Prayer in St Mary will be taken by Canon Paul.

Gardeners.  The church gardening group will also be meeting on Sunday morning.  A lot has been done this spring thanks to a number of individuals so the churchyard is in really good condition but this is the first time the whole group will be gathering this year (socially distanced of course).  Please find attached a photo of a wonderful iris growing on the south side of the church.

Faringdon Foodbank.  Many thanks to everybody who contributed to the Foodbank collection last Wednesday.  It was well in excess of what we had expected and will make a real difference.  For anyone else who wishes to contribute, the box will remain under the table that hosts the ‘signing-in sheet’ and sanitiser.  I would just ask that you take care to ensure that the church mice can’t take the opportunity to have a little nibble, so please wrap up anything tempting!  Thank you.

Local Villages Newsletter. Please find attached the May edition of the Local Villages Newsletter.

Online Services. As usual the details of the Benefice online services for this Sunday can be found at:

Best Wishes,


Church Warden St Mary The Virgin, Longcot
