Women’s World Day of Prayer 2015
Many thanks to everyone who joined us and contributed to the beautiful Women’s World Day of Prayer service written by the Women of the Bahamas. The personal ‘Footstep Response’ of each member of the congregation can be found in St John’s Church, Bridgetown and we were once again very grateful to the Mayor, Deputy and their spouses for attending and taking part.
The collection came to £200, a large portion of which was Gift Aided and is yet to be added to final total.
Join us again in 2016 to share in a service written by the Women of Cuba.

Electoral Roll 2015
A revision of the Electoral Roll will take place between Sunday 8th March and Sunday 22nd March 2015, when copies of the Electoral Roll will be displayed at the back of St Mary’s Church, Totnes. Please check your details on the register and, if there is no change, you need take no further action.
If your details have changed or if you are a newcomer to the church and would like to be included on the register, please complete an application form and hand it to a Church Warden by Sunday 22nd March at the latest.
Joan Caskey asks:
“Please can we have contributions towards the cost of the lilies to decorate St Mary’s Church at Easter? It would be lovely if we could put on a good display as usual.”

JARS OF CHANGE – Lent Appeal 2015
Our churches will once again be supporting the campaign to bring clean, safe water to communities around the world. Did you know that a 20 litre container of water weighs 20 kilos? WaterAid projects make long walks for water a thing of the past, allowing children time to attend school and gain a life-changing eduction. Boreholes and taps bring life-saving water, ensuring proper sanitation and preventing diarrhoea and other water-related diseases. You too can support Jars of Change this Lent by donating what you save from giving up a luxury to help bring water to villages in Africa, Southern Asia and Central America.
