St. Mary Magdalene’s Church, Essendine – May 2021

Greetings to you all from St Mary Magdalene’s Church 

I hope you are all well and enjoying some better weather. It has been a very welcome sight to see the sheep and lambs back in the church field. On a ride around the farm, we watched a herd of deer grazing quietly around the woods. The blue bells are just beginning to show; what a lovely sight. 

It is lovely once again to be able to welcome you back to church services at Essendine. Thank you to everyone who has helped with cleaning and preparing the church for re-opening. Social distancing and face masks still apply. It is wonderful to see flowers back inside the church. 

Although the church has to remain locked during the week at the present time, you are very welcome to come and sit in the peaceful churchyard and watch the Spring lambs dancing in the fields. 

During this month we pray for all those couples who are to finally able to get married. We hope you have a very memorable day. We pray for all the students about to take exams and assessments as they continue their journey through education. We pray for all the new babies arriving this month, we wish you all much joy and happiness. 

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