St Mary’s Update – 20th June 2017
Don’t forget, the church is now open on weekdays if you would like a quiet space to reflect or say a prayer for someone.
You can Google this and find many meanings, so why not pop along to the Methodist Church in West Bergholt on 25th June at 6:30pm and find out what the Colchester Methodist Circuit make of it. The theme of the service will be ‘Receiving Gifts for ministry’. You will be warmly welcomed and, if you can’t make that, then there are further opportunities as follows:
- 23rd July – Boxted,
- 24th September – Mersea,
- 22nd October – Wivenhoe,
- 26th November – The Ark, and
- 28th January – Castle.
