The Church Butterfly Colony

For many years, there has been a colony of Tortoiseshell Butterflies in St Mary’s, they live there near the Choir Vestry but if you see one fluttering by, don’t evict it as it will probably kill it!

Harvest Festival

Last Sunday morning, St Mary’s held their traditional Harvest Festival service with Holy Communion. The church was decorated with harvest items of local produce and bread but the Congregation were asked to bring gifts of non-perishable goods which could be passed on to the Potton Storebox Food Bank for the needy. A good selection of these goods were collected for this charity.

Our Church Roof

We will need  a roof alarm system otherwise future insurance may not be possible. With this in mind, ideas are needed to raise about £8000 for the alarm.This alarm will be fitted soon but we still need to keep raising money towards the cost as some has had to be borrowed in the short term. To donate, please use our Just Giving scheme:  http://bit.ly/29JwBps If you have any other ideas, please talk to a Churchwarden or the Rev Gill.
