St. Mary Magdalene’s Church Essendine – Dec 2020

Season’s Greetings 

I would like to wish you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful Christmas. 

It has been such a difficult year, a roller coaster of emotions and events. On the farm the crops have been planted (hopefully), it’s great to see the new crops growing. The owls are calling at night, the squirrels are busy in the garden and the garden birds are once again busy on the feeders. 

Let’s pray for some beautiful bright sunny skies as we work our way through 

December and hope we can celebrate Christmas together. Take care and keep warm and safe. Look out for your friends and neighbours this Winter. 

Our thoughts and prayers this month are with The Children’s Society, for all the good work they do. 

To all those who are ill at home or in hospital, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. 

We remember especially those whose loved ones have died this year and for whom Christmas will be a lonely time. Our thoughts are with them and their families. 

Please note that services are subject to change due to unknown Government restrictions. 

FAMILY SERVICE: Sunday 6th December at 10.00am. This is an all age service led by Katy and Anne. Everyone is very welcome to attend. 

HOLY COMMUNION: A service of Holy Communion will take place at St Mary’s Church on Sunday 13th December at 9.00am. Everyone is very welcome to attend. 

CHRISTMAS DAY: A service of Holy Communion for all the family will take place at St Mary’s Church on 25th December at 9.00am. A very special way to start Christmas Day. Everyone is most welcome. 

Please take care of yourselves and stay safe. 

A blessed Christmas to you all 

Katy Parkinson (Churchwarden)
