We welcome Revd Tim Jessiman to our service to preach. Tim is the new Deanery Mission Enabler. We look forward to hear him and what God would say to us through him.

The final LENT LUNCH will be held on Sat 24th March at 12 to 1.30pm in St Marys Church. Money raised will go to 'More than Food' project within Foodbank that aims to provide cookery classes for families and more importantly meals for children during school holidays who receive free meals during term time and Christian Aid. Please do invite neighbours and friends. A good opportunity to enjoy friendship and raise money for those less fortunate than ourselves.

After the service on Easter Sunday there will be an EASTER EGG HUNT. Offers of eggs would be very welcome - please give to Mary Potter.

The funeral of Jennifer Turner will take place at Locking Castle Church on the 23rd March at 12noon. PLEASE PRAY for her family at this sad time, as well as for Vera Hawkins and her sons Tim and Warren and their families following Dennis’ funeral, and also for Jackie and John Williams following the death of Jackie’s mum Joan on Thursday.

EASTER FLOWERS - Our church always looks even more amazing once our dedicated flower arrangers have been at work at Eastertime, but as we all know this comes at a cost. Flowers are quite expensive but it is a time when we can all contribute in some small way. If you would like to give money in remembrance of loved ones, or to celebrate an event, there will be a tin at the back of church and a list for you to share the reason for your donation. This will then be in church on Easter morning, another opportunity to give thanks. Many thanks.

Please sign up on the sheet at the back of church if you would like to attend MAUNDY THURSDAY SUPPER in Hutton School Hall 30th March at 7.00pm and also if you can provide a soup of either :- 1) Vegetable or 2) Parsnip and Apple. Thank you.

MONTHLY PRAYER MEETING on 7th April at 10.00am in church. All welcome. Following meetings on 5th May and 2nd June.

40 places have been booked for the CHURCH MEAL at The Old Inn on Tuesday 22nd May. Menu options and sign up sheet will be available after Easter.

ELECTORAL ROLL - if your name is not on the electoral roll and you would like to be on it then please fill in a form and give to a warden or Virginia Hollis. This enables you to vote at the APCM and indicates that you wish to be a member of the church.

PRAYER REQUESTS. If you would like personal prayer on any Sunday please do make contact with Jane, Chris, Jean, Kay, Virginia, Jackie or Sue Orton, who will happily pray with you. If you would like a visit, please ring Virginia Hollis 708924 to arrange a visit.

PRAYER CHAIN - If you need prayer for yourself or another then there is a team of people ready to pray. For Locking, please contact Christine Sceeny phone 822331 or for Hutton Kay Cole phone 811424 and they will send out the prayer request. It would be lovely to know how the person we are praying for is getting on, or whether they still need more prayer. It is a great encouragement for us all to hear that God is answering our prayers, please send feedback to Christine or Kay. Thank you.
