Fire Drill Sunday 29th May

For those attending church at 10.00 on Sunday, please note the following.

After the dismissal, we will be having a fire drill. This is to conform with our fire insurance and Health and Safety policies. The fire whistle will be blown immediately after the dismissal and everyone should leave the building by the main entrance or south door, but not the north door. Please make your way to the main car park. As soon as we’ve all evacuated, we will be able to re-enter the building for Parish Breakfast. Any queries, please speak to David Tompkins.


Pentecost Sunday 5th June 8am and 10am

Presiding: Revd Peter Knibbs

Preaching: Margaret Evans

Please consider wearing something red, white, blue (or all three!) as we mark both Pentecost and the Platinum Jubilee.


Eco Church

Please keep up with your actions and prayers. Last year St. Mary’s achieved a Bronze Award as part of the Eco Church scheme and we are now working towards silver status. We are not alone in our eco journey, but part of the bigger picture of Christians trying to care for God’s creation. To date, here are 4,845 registered eco churches, over 1,890 awards achieved and 25 churches receiving a gold award. Thank you for all the actions already taken and in anticipation of all those to come. The Pledge and Prayer tree is still in place and some of the work produced for last weekends climate themed event, is on the eco table.

Funeral of Jean Goudie RIP Tuesday 14th June 10am

All are welcome to St Mary's for the funeral of Jean Goudie followed by cremation at Tynemouth at 11.15am.


Grounds redevelopment

All being well works will commence on Monday 20th June and will continue for some 16 weeks. Inevitably there will be significant disruption as the project develops and paths are re-laid. Parts of the car park (suitably protected) will be used as a compound. The church and hall will remain open but extra care will be required. Please be aware and follow the signage.


Reminder: Group for Older People

Thank you to all of you who came along to help start this new group. Our next meeting will be on Friday 10th June at 12noon when we will have a snack lunch and look at what we mean by living a spiritual life in our autumn years. Please sign up on the sheet in the vestibule by Sunday 5th June so that I can order food for the lunch. Beryl Austoni.
