YOU ARE WARMLY INVITED TO OUR SERVICES AT ST MARY'S
ST MARY'S CHURCH REDECORATION PROJECT The parish celebrated the internal redecoration of St Mary's Church with some style on Saturday 14th May, with the 33-piece Buxted Symphony Orchestra performing in the church. There were two pieces on the programme - Haydn Symphony No 99 and the Dvorak Czech Suite. There were 65 people in the audience, which meant that £650 was raised, to be shared between St Mary's and the Orchestra. Afterwards there was a buffet with wine and soft drinks in the Church Hall, which provided a good opportunity to talk to our friends and neighbours locally (and also a number of people from farther afield) about plans to develop our outreach in the parish, of which sacred and secular music will always play an important part
CALVARY. A number of years ago, the figures on the Calvary (which forms part of the war memorial at S. Mary's) were vandalised. Although repaired, the weather has taken its toll on the figures and they now need replacing. Fund raising started in the New Year. If you would like donate towards the project please contact Colin Woolgrove - 01825 830076
Sung Mass on all Sundays (Please note, this may change on the 5th Sunday if there is a United Parish Eucharist - see the St Mary's calendar)
St Mary's has a Walsingham cell, which meets at 10.30 am on the second Wednesday of each month for a Mass of the Holy House.
