St Mary’s Update – 6th January 2018
St Mary’s Church update for 6th January provides listings of services and other events and news such as free Panto tickets and Churches Conference.
Next Messy Church
On Sunday 14th January at 9.30am, Messy Church is a chance to do church differently. It offers informal worship and family-friendly, fun activities, plus refreshments after the service. All welcome!
Colchester Area Churches Conference
Becoming Communities of Grace
This is taking place on Saturday 3rd February at the Girls High School , Norman Way, Colchester—9.30am to 3pm. There will be two workshop sessions during the conference with options of:
- All are welcome: connecting with young people.
- All are welcome: being accessible to those on the autism spectrum.
- All are welcome: honouring those who are older.
- Working with difference – how do we collaborate with those who are different to us?
- All are welcome – what does this mean in our global society?
The cost £5 each or £20 for 5 people. Please let Liz Dixon know by Friday 26 Jan if you would like to attend so that she can coordinate the applications from St Mary’s.
There are still plenty of free tickets available, for our over-65s, for a meal at the White Hart followed by a trip to the Orpen Players production of Sleeping Beauty. The cost of the tickets and meal is paid for as a result of the generous donation to the 5Ts fellowship group from the Allotments Association. Please contact Murray Harlow to book your place (01206 242007).
Sadly we are postponing the Afternoon tea event scheduled for 17th February due to illness but we hope to reschedule later in the year. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The church is now open weekdays, except Weds and Bank Holidays, from 9am to 1pm. Don’t forget you can get your free recycling items from the church office during these times!
