May at St Mary’s, Buckden

After a very busy April in St Mary’s – Holy Week, Easter, our annual meetings and the launch of the *800 and counting* challenge – May brings a chance to stand back and reflect on the events of the last month and on God’s goodness. Confirmation classes have just started and later this month we will be taking part in the Archbishop’s prayer for the nation “Thy Kingdom Come” in the run up to Pentecost.

The first weekend in May we are hosting the annual concert from Stageworks, our local theatre school.
