It’s the last week before the summer break for many. At St Mary’s we are looking forward to our two holiday clubs in August:-
Holidays at Home – club for those mature in years but young at heart: 2-5pm on August 7th, 8th, 9th at the Methodist Hall
Pirates Holiday Club for 5 – 11yr olds 9.30am – noon on 22nd, 23rd, 24th August at Buckden School
For either club, contact email@example.com or pick up a form in church.
Daily prayers, Sunday & Wednesday Services, Getting Active and Saturday Coffee will all continue as normal throughout the summer.
On Sunday 26th February we launched our “800 and counting” initiative (information below) to individuals, families and groups in Buckden and beyond.
We invite everyone to get involved and make this a whole village event for 2017

A group from St Mary’s will be taking part in the Cambridgeshire Historic Churches Trust (CHCT) Ride, Drive and Stride event on Saturday 10th September. Some cycling between local churches and starting off from St Mary’s during Coffee & Cakes; others walking between churches in Cambridge. All keeping up the tradition that has been so well established and supported at St Mary’s by Ron and Ken (to name but two).
It is a sponsored event. Half the money we raise goes to CHCT and half directly to St Mary’s. CHCT is any organisation that gives grants to churches undertaking restoration and improvement work – something very relevant to our current situation
If you would like to join in and cycle or walk, please see Anne Carter.
If you unable to join us on the day, then please consider sponsoring us. There is a sponsor form at the back of church or you can sponsor us online using the following link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Buckden-bikes
