As we enter July there’s currently something of a heatwave going on. We’re hoping that the weather will hold for all the summer events planned here and throughout the village.
July 7th-8th is festival weekend in Buckden. There will be no coffee & cakes on Saturday and no 11am service in St Mary’s on Sunday but you can come and see us the Holiday Club Stall at the fete (Saturday afternoon) and at the festival service in the village hall (11am Sunday).
See below for events coming up at St Mary’s this month:-

St Mary’s chosen charity for July-August is Buckden village resident, Molly Smith. Following multiple organ transplant 10 years ago she has ‘challenging health’. The funds raised will go towards ramps to enable Molly to spend time in her garden and leave the house as she becomes increasingly dependent on a wheelchair. Look for the display in church or the charities page on this website under the FINANCE tab to find out more.
Preparations for our Holiday Clubs are now well underway.
For the children (5-11 years) we have Pyramid Rock – details and booking form below.
For those mature in years but young at heart we have Holidays at Home 13th-15th August – details to follow

Our chosen Charity for May-June is Godmanchester Food Bank http://godmanchester.foodbank.org.uk/ The Trussell Trust foodbank network works in partnership with local churches and organisations to bring foodbanks to communities across the UK. St Mary’s have been a collection point for Godmanchester Foodbank for several years. There is a food collection box near the font for our offerings each week and we also pass donations of dried and tinned food from the schoolchildren at harvest festival each year. Look out for the display in church and more information in the pewsheets this month.
