CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL 2014
St. Mary's Church again held its Christmas Tree Festival over the weekend of 13-14 December 2014, in the Church, for all to view. The Family Carol service was well supported and in his short talk Revd Martin noted that every tree is important because each one represents a group of people working together in the spirit of mutual co-operation and support. A sincere 'thank you' to everyone who took part, from all around our local community; and especially to Elaine Hanham and her team for organising the event. Donations, generously given, will be used to support the work of St Mary's Church and Demelza House Hospice Care for Children. You can view some photographs.
A CHRISTMAS COMMISSION
"When the song of the Angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins;
to feed the hungry,
to release the prisoner,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among people, and
to make music in the heart."
By Howard Thurman
