May at St Mary’s Buckden

Thank you to everyone who attended the Meeting of the Parishioners and APCM on Sunday 8th April. Those meetings already seem a dim and distant memory. And thanks to everyone who is taking on or continuing with a volunteer role within St Mary’s. We are blessed to have so many willing helpers.

May is looking to be a very busy month with 3 weddings, Ascension Day, a concert, various coffee morning and a number of funerals. Please see the newsletter or the posters below for more details of events in May.  Please note that the Friends in Deed Drop-in Café this month will be at The Methodist Church.

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.

There will be no house-to-house collection in Buckden, but envelopes will be available at the back of church if you wish to make a donation and Buckden & District Churches Together are holding a fund-raising coffee morning on Friday 11th May 10am in the Methodist Hall.
