St. Mary Magdalene’s Church, Essendine – June 2022

Greetings to you all from St Mary Magdalene’s Church 

God bless our gracious Queen, 

I hope you are all well and looking forward to all the Jubilee celebrations. It will be a lovely sight to see gardens and villages decked with royal bunting. I hope you all have a lovely time. 

On the farm we were very grateful for the May rainfall, Hopefully this will help the crops and grass to grow, The weeds in my garden have certainly enjoyed the rain. The owls have been very noisy at night and a heron was spotted on our roof last week along with the Jackdaws building a nest on our chimney. We have plenty of small birds but are still waiting for the swallows to arrive. 

This month we would like to give thanks for all the couples finally able to hold their Summer Weddings. We wish you all a wonderful day and a very happy life together. 

We would also like to welcome any new residents or visitors to Essendine, a warm welcome awaits you at our dear little church. 

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