February at St Mary’s Buckden

We are well into the New Year and back to routine.  All groups and activities have restarted and there is lots going on in the church.  Hopefully something for everyone.

Thanks you to everyone who joined us for the Cleaning Crew on Saturday 2nd February, the church is looking lovely.  Please note that there will be no organised Cleaning Crew in March, but do feel free to pop with your duster during that first week.

St Mary’s chosen charity for November-December is for January-February is MAGPAS www.magpas.org.uk    Magpas Air Ambulance brings crucial lifesaving care by land and air to patients in life-threatening emergencies. Based in Cambridgeshire, their enhanced medical team receives advanced training which allows them to offer procedures and treatments at the scene. They support the ambulance service and give medical care when time is of the essence. This means that the frontline care the team delivers doesn’t just save lives, it helps seriously ill and injured people to return to a good quality of life. Magpas Air Ambulance is not a state-funded service & relies on generous public donations to continue saving lives. Thank you in advance for your generosity. There will be a fund-raising Pamper Afternoon in aid of MAGPAS on Saturday 2nd March at 53 Park Road 2pm – 6pm.

The Wreath Festival continues throughout December, please come and take a look.

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.
