Happy New Year from St Mary’s

After all the busy-ness of Christmas and New Year we look forward to getting back into a more normal routine during January.

The Wreath Festival and the Memory Baubles on the Christmas Tree have adorned the church during December.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to these events. It is now time to clear decks, so please collect your wreath as soon as possible.  All uncollected wreaths will be disposed of after January 5th.

Please join our Cleaning Crew on Saturday 5th January from 10am for a post-Christmas clean up.  All help would be most welcome

On  Sunday 6th we celebrate the Epiphany and our knitted nativity sets return to church after their Christmas journeys around Buckden.

On Wednesday 9th we have the return of the Community Café.  2.30 – 4pm

What a fabulous start to December.  The church was a hive of activity all weekend long.  Thank you to everyone who came on Saturday to help with the cleaning, decorate the Christmas tree, receive and display the wreaths, provide the refreshments.
On Sunday our knitted nativity sets set-off during the morning’s Advent Sunday Service; we were open during the afternoon of the Buckden Christmas Market & Lights to welcome visitors to the Wreath Festival, children to the craft workshops, singers from Buckden School. Thanks to everyone who visited & everyone who helped.

The Wreath Festival continues throughout December, please come and take a look.
Don’t forget to sponsor a memory bauble this year – £3 from The Flower Boutique, The Salon on the Green and Buckden Preschool

Our next events involve coffee, the Annual Christmas Coffee Morning at the Village Hall on the 5th and The Community Café in St Mary’s on the 12th.  Please come and join us for a cuppa

St Mary’s chosen charity for November-December is Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) www.maf-uk.org   For 70 years, MAF has been flying for life
In today’s ‘connected world’, the irony is that never have so many people been so isolated. Flying onto desert and jungle airstrips, lakes and rivers, tracks and roads, MAF’s light aircraft and their mission pilots go the extra miles to provide a lifeline. They fly medical, relief and life-transforming help to vulnerable people in hard-to-reach places. They need our prayers and financial support.
