February at St Mary’s Buckden

We’re already a whole month into 2018 and what a quick month January was!  The latest round of work on the church building was completed before Christmas and we are now dealing with the final details of payments and grant reclaims.

We congratulate our own Roger Cresswell on being appointed as part-time chaplain at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in January.  For more photos of Roger’s licensing, see the Gallery on this website.



February this year sees the start of Lent, with Ash Wednesday on the 14th.

Our 2018 Lent course is based on “The King’s Speech” and there are two options for taking part:-
Monday lunchtimes – BDCT study lunches (with soup lunch) 12.30pm at the Methodist Hall.   For 5 weeks starting 19th February.
Thursday evenings – 8.30pm study sessions at 7 Vineyard Way Thursdays for 5 weeks starting 22nd February

Our chosen Charity for January-February is Cornerstone Pregnancy Advice Centre  This is a very local charity, a pregnancy advice centre based in Huntingdon. Their vision is to reach every woman in Huntingdonshire facing an unplanned pregnancy and offer her time, space and non-directive information in order that she can make a fully informed choice and to offer her on-going support, whatever decision she makes. Please take a look at the display at the back of St Mary’s and pick up at baby’s bottle to fill with coins.

OUR 2017 donations to charity totalled an amazing £8,545 (see below).

Hot Topic Sermons

On Sunday 14th January we had our 2nd Hot Topic Sermon. Revd Miles Falla spoke on the subject of God and Suffering.  If you missed it or want to read it again, this and the previous Hot Topic – Who is Jesus? can be downloaded from this website under Worship & Prayer/Sermons or by clicking this link.

Hot topic sermons are continuing on the 2nd Sunday of each month during the 11am Morning Service


Happy New Year from St Mary’s

We have had a fabulous Christmas time at St Mary’s, we even had snow!  Thank you to everyone who came to the many and varied services and events over the last month. Now it is time to take down the decorations and move into the New Year.
Thank you to everyone who bought and personalised a bauble and to everyone who provided a wreath for the festival this Christmas; a special thank you to The Flower Boutique Brampton who donated the fabulous Christmas tree and the baubles.
The decorations must come down this week so….
  • All Wreaths to be collected as soon as possible please.
  • The personalised baubles are in a basket at the back of church near the font. We would be very happy to keep these to use again next year.  However, if you would like to take your bauble home, please do.
