St Mary-in-Charnwood News and Notices

Eco Fair – Saturday 18th May, 10am-4pm at St Mary’s

This will be an ‘Open Church’ event offering information and activities related to care for our world. The church will be decorated with a rainbow theme, and we hope to have refreshments, crafts, a woodland trail, and community run stalls. The theme will also be celebrated in our Sunday (Pentecost) services ending with Worship with a Classical Flavour. Please put the date in your diaries and think who you might invite to come along. We’re going to need lots of volunteers to help decorate as well as to help out on the day – more information and requests for help will follow! If you’d like to know more or get involved in the planning, please contact
