Lent Course 2019
Revd Margaret will be holding a a Lent Course in church on five Tuesdays in Lent, from 12th March to 9th April inclusive, from 12noon until 1:00pm.
The five sessions stand alone so if you can't make all of them you are welcome to attend those you can.
The course is based on the book "The Things He Carried: A Journey to the Cross: Meditations for Lent and Holy Week" by Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford, and contains reflections and meditations on what Jesus carried on his final journey.
Everyone is welcome, nothing needed, just bring yourself.

New Church Electoral Roll for 2019
Under Church Representation Rules, every six years, St Mary’s must create a new Church Electoral Roll (instead of simply revising the existing one). This will happen in 2019.
If you wish to remain on the St Mary's Church Electoral Roll, you must have completed a new Electoral Roll Application Form and placed it in the box in church (or returned it to the Electoral Roll Officer) on or before Wednesday 13th March.
Similarly, if you aren’t currently on the Electoral Roll but would like to be (and you meet the eligibility requirements) you should have completed an Application Form form and returned it as described above.
The newly-compiled Electoral Roll will be displayed in church for at least fourteen days, during which period any errors can be amended. This provides an opportunity for you to check that your details are correct.
However, once the Electoral Roll is displayed, no new names may be added to it (or names removed from it) until the close of the Annual Parochial Church Meeting on Tuesday 9th April.
See the Electoral Roll FAQ page for full details about becoming a member of the Church Electoral Roll.
Note that a paper version of the Electoral Roll Application form will be available in church.
