What’s coming up at St. Mary’s…
Advent Film Screening
It seems like Christmas is coming early to St. Mary’s in 2019! We’ll be screening the classic film Scrooge: A Christmas Carol at 3pm on Sunday 17th November. Grab some popcorn and settle in as we kick off the Advent season with a film that’s fit for all the family!
And if you enjoy the film why not check out…
This year we will be using the book Humbug and Happiness for our Advent discussion groups. Groups will meet on a Wednesday for four weeks beginning on 27th November at 13.30 at the home of Linda Smith (ask in church for details), or 18.30 in church.
Feel free to get hold of a copy of the book yourself or put your name on the list in the porch and we’ll order one for you. Books cost £6.99 each.
23rd November is the date to remember for the annual St. Mary’s Christmas Fayre. Doors will be open from 10 until 12. Prizes to be won, cakes to be eaten, maybe you’ll even be able to pick up a pressie for a special someone!
Donations for Tombola and raffle gratefully accepted.
