Two or three times a year, our Reader Paul Olejnik - with the help of other parishioners - organises imaginative, interesting and fun activities that are suitable for all ages. Sometimes these sessions involve a walk, a craft activity or two, a quiz and some reflective time and almost always there is plenty of delicious food!! We have learnt about natural dyes that would have been used in Biblical times, painted religious icons on canvas, made our own bread .. and bricks .. outdoors (both looked quite similar ) and explored the natural wildlife in "God's Acre" - our very own churchyard at St Mary's.
Fellowship, Faith, Fun is our motto. Read on to find out more.

"Faces" - Icons and Stained Glass - Sat, 26 November, 11am – 3pm
A lovely event - for all ages - of creativity and craft with an interlude to investigate the stained glass windows, a tasty light light and ending with a short service of reflection. More details to follow soon.
A repeat performance of the very popular pre-Covid icon making workshop:
Picnic in the Jungle
What will we be doing?
As a Church, we feel called to pray for our stewardship of the environment, and of our planet. So, our natural environment will be the focus of the next fellowship event, held in the grounds of St Mary's. We'll be having a close-up look our flourishing wildflower patches and exploring the small scale wildlife and other plants (insects, mosses and lichens) that form their own mini-jungle in Plumtree.
