A time for prayer

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the terrible attack in Manchester last night. St Mary’s is, of course, open today as usual for private prayer and reflection. Between 1.15pm and 2.15pm there will be the opportunity to light a candle in memory of those who were killed and injured last night. Jes and Ann will be there to lead prayers and to chat with any who would find that helpful.

Christian Aid Week

There will be no house-to-house collection in Buckden during Christian Aid Week. Instead, Buckden & District Churches Together is holding a fund-raising coffee morning on Friday 12th May 10am in the Methodist Hall.  Envelopes will be available at the coffee morning on the 12th and at the back of church during the 14th-20th May if you would like to make a donation.
