ST MARY’S: Easter at St Marys. Good Friday, a three-hour devotion from noon. Tomorrow, Saturday, morning we shall be decorating the Easter Garden. Why not join us for a hot cross bun from 10am to 11am. We greet Easter morning at 8am with a bonfire and lighting of the new Pascal Candle and the first Eucharist of Easter. Don’t forget to bring a flower to the 10am Eucharist to decorate the floral cross and something to make a joyful noise as we celebrate Easter. There will also be a traditional Evensong at 6.30pm. New. Do you have (or know) children in years 5 to 6? St Mary’s is starting a new Friday Group especially for the older primary-school group to provide a basis for the transition to new schools. Starting on Friday April 28, 6.30pm to 8pm and running every other Friday, there will be a lively mix of games and activities, snacks and the opportunity to understand a little more about the church and charitable projects here and overseas.
