ST MARY’S: Sunday services continue in their usual pattern, 8am Holy Communion, 10am Eucharist and 6.30pm Evensong, led by one of our gifted Lay Leaders. Every service is different, so if you haven’t been for a while perhaps you are nudged to come along and see what suits you. The scaffolding will remain in place for the coming weeks as work continues on the roof and woodwork. We hope to be able to reveal all very soon. Suffice to say this is very weather-dependent. If you’re on your own of an evening, please pop along and join us at The Anchor on Tuesday evening from 7.30pm. If you’re not sure about coming to the pub on your own, let Shirley know in advance. On Friday February 22, both Friday Clubs meet at their respective venues from 6.30pm. New members are always welcome, just pop along with a registration form, see www.ringmerchurch.org for more details .
