This year, St Mary’s is supporting the Swindon Foodbank by collecting coffee and toilet rolls, which have been specifically requested, and are desperately needed. These will be collected during the Morning Services of Sunday 17 and Sunday 24 September.
If you have read your Partnership News you will have seen an invitation to the Gathering and a new reflective service called Encounter.
The Gathering is to bring together everyone who has a heart for our Partnership Children’s, Youth and Family work.
The Encounter service is to give us all time in our busy lives to be still and know God.
In Partnership News they are advertised as taking place at Shaw, but they will be held at St Mary’s. Apologies, for this change of venue - a communication hiccup! Please see the corrected posters at the back of the Church, and in the Stable Room.
