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

Greetings to you all from St Mary Magdalene’s Church. 

I hope you are all well and enjoyed the Summer holidays. On the farm, 

harvest is hopefully nearly finished and the new drilling has already started. It always amazes me how quickly the farming calendar moves on from combining the fields to planting the new crops. It has been a challenging harvest with the weather this year. 

Our thoughts and prayers this month go to everyone starting a new term, from the first days at Nursery or Primary school, to those off to start their first adventure away from home at College or University; we wish you all every success and happiness. 

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

FAMILY SERVICE: Sunday 5th September at 10.00am This is an all-age service of Morning Prayer for the Benefice led by Katy and Anne. Everyone is very welcome. Refreshments will be served after the service
