The House of Bishops wishes to ensure that our churches and church-related activities are
as safe as possible for children and vulnerable adults. It is important that all cases of
concern about the behaviour of living clergy and church officers towards children and
vulnerable adults have been considered and dealt with appropriately. Incumbents have
been asked to check that all instances within their parish(es), both historically and currently,
have been dealt with appropriately. St Mary’s will be submitting the required forms by the
end of September. If you have any information or concerns, please see Tim as soon as

Sunday mornings in Church
It is good to see so many people in Church on Sunday mornings, although it is very strange
to see everyone in masks. It is also odd not being able to sing.
From this Sunday Andrea Whittaker will be singing solo during communion.
If you haven't yet been able to come along on Sunday mornings, do watch the service on
Facebook or the parish website. Many thanks to the wardens and especially to Peter
Lonsborough for all the work that they put in to enable us to be open for worship.

Disabled Access.
We have now had the plans for disabled access to St Mary's approved.
Due to the Grade 1 listing of St Mary's and the hill on which our Church is built there is no
easy way to do this. If you would like to see the plans, please contact Tim.
The cost will be around £80,000, so far we have raised around £40,000.
If you would like to contribute to the cost of access, or discuss how you can help to raise the
funds please speak to Tim or visit the Church website.

Coronavirus - Guidelines from the Archbishops
1. Suspend the use of a shared chalice. Instead Communion will be given in one kind only,
the communicants will receive the consecrated bread but not the wine.
2. Refrain from laying hands on those being blessed at the communion rail or those being
prayed for.
3. Refrain from shaking hands when sharing the Peace. Instead we say, "Peace be with
you." with a nod or waving often hands.

Church Finances
It looks as though we will have a deficit in 2020 of around £3000. We are not planning a
stewardship campaign in 2020 as we will be putting our time and energy into raising funds
for Disabled Access and to try and get the Church path sorted. When I realised that we
were facing a loss this year I also realised that I haven't increased my monthly giving by
inflation for the past 3 years. I also realised that if everyone at St Mary's who can afford to
do so made a small monthly increase in their giving of around £1 per week we would be
able to make up most of the shortfall. I am aware that St Mary's is a very generous Church
so I ask you to pray about this and respond however God prompts you. Many thanks, God
bless, Tim.

Help is needed in the church garden.
If you can, mow, weed, strim, sweep, pickup sticks, rake leaves or drive a sit on mower, we
need you. If you can spare just one or two hours a week it would be a great help. Not only
will the church look good but you might even feel your spiritual and physical well-being
improve and in our small way help the environment. We come to the churchyard every
Tuesday and Friday afternoon (weather permitting) followed by a drinks and biscuits,
sometimes even a cake. Any help most welcome. Thank you. Pat Wood
For people who give by bankers order
There are now slips in a basket near the hymn books. If you give by bankers Order please
take one and put it on the collection plate during the service. It was felt that giving by Bank
Orders should be recognised and blessed along with other gifts on the collection plate

Prayer of Preparation
As you prepare for worship you might like to reflect on these words.
O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers
of your people who call upon you;
and grant that they may both perceive and know
what things they ought to do,
and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

your donation by Gift Aiding it. This allows us to recover the
