CHRISTMAS AT ST MARY’S
All welcome to St Mary’s Christmas events and services taking place over the festive period.
Please see poster for dates and times and venues.
For more details, please see the various posters below.
FESTIVE POP-UP BREAKFAST
Saturday 14 December in the Village Hall from 9am, last orders at 11.30am.
This year our support is for the Toybox charity – nothing to do with more ‘stuff’ for children living in poverty but something more lasting: the documents they need to prove they exist so they can access health care and education. The charity was featured on Radio 4 in November and operates particularly in South America and Nepal. www.toybox.org.uk/birthregistration
Come for breakfast and give generously this Christmas!
