Derek Burton’s 90th Birthday

Derek was born in London’s East End, on his father’s birthday, 28th June 1931, the same year St. Mary’s Church’s foundation stone was laid. This year 2021, he will also celebrate having served 40 years of ministry since being licensed Reader in 1981.

Happy birthday Derek, from everyone at St Mary’s!

Happy Birthday Cheryl Savage

Cheryl celebrates a special birthday on 28th June. Love and best wishes from all at St Mary’s.



Thank You

A huge thank you to everyone. Your thoughts and Prayers were much appreciated. Myra had a heart attack after John’s collapse. She has had a stent put in and John had a new valve. They are slowly improving. Again, our sincere thanks.

Myra and John Telfer



Eco Church

We all wait, with anticipation, for the return of all aspects of church life, here at St. Mary’s. Eco church, like so many areas has been on hold, even though, as a new project, it had hardly started. Now, as we move out of the pandemic, we face new opportunities to integrate creation care, into our own lives, church life and communities.

The pandemic has given many of us an awareness of nature on our doorsteps and an increased awareness of the impacts of human activity. The climate crisis and environmental issues are not new but have been brought into sharper focus by recent events. The churches commitment to the environment, is also not new, as the Anglican fifth Mark of Mission, is ‘To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth’.

St. Mary’s, in the past and now, does look at and act on the eco issues. At the present time, the Building and Resources group have requested a church audit, to look at our energy consumption and suppliers. The grounds development group are incorporating eco friendly considerations into the plans. The parish breakfast team have in the past been committed to Fairtrade products and intend to restart when parish breakfast resumes. The flower team have researched and resourced a new biodegradable oasis, that they are going to trial. All positive steps.


Hopefully, environmentally friendly and Fairtrade goods will routinely become incorporated into all areas of church life. Whether in the church itself, the kitchen, office, toilets or cleaners cupboards.

I’m looking forward to working within my new role as Parish Environmental Champion. This entails ensuring environmental issues are championed here at St. Mary’s, as we all work together to become a greener and more sustainable church.

New Creation Book

Derek Burton’s second book, ‘NEW CREATION’, is to be published on his birthday, 28th June. It has a new design, more messages, more poems and many coloured images. It will be available from numerous retailers.


Here is one of five reviews printed on the back cover –

“A great read. This book covers a very wide range of historic and contemporary issues. It does not shy away from controversy, and addresses topics which we don’t often face up to. Statements are backed up with a variety of quotations from different sources. These chime with real experience. A very clear case for a Christian faith which is contemporary and relates to today’s experience, whilst being founded on a bedrock of solid Scriptural foundations. I hope it reaches a wide and receptive audience.”

Peter Howitt, Surrey


A reminder that Derek's first book, "A Light to my Path" is already available on Amazon here >.
