CHURCH SERVICES IN ST MARY’S: For Palm Sunday there will be a Sung Family Eucharist at 9.30am, with distribution of palms. Everyone will be welcome at the service, and for the refreshments afterwards. At noon on Good Friday there will be a service of prayer and meditation.

COFFEE MORNING: On Tuesday (March 22) between 10.30am and noon, Rosemary Crouch has kindly invited us to a coffee morning at her home, Hayesland Cottage (in Hayes Lane, a short way along from its junction with Hundred House Lane). This will be a fundraising event in aid of the Women’s Fistula Hospital in Addis Abbaba, an excellent cause fully deserving our support.
