Hello Everyone

After a particularly gloomy and cold March, welcome (almost) to April!

Month of Venus, goddess of love and spring rebirth.

As we look forward to Easter and the promise of warmer weather, hot cross buns and Easter eggs….. spare a moment and read on to find out what is happening in and around St Mary’s this month

Saturday 1st April – 10am onwards – Turkey & Syria Earthquake Appeal at the Half Moon & Spread Eagle

Turkish chefs will provide a sale of Turkish delicacies in the pub garden – to take away or eat in the garden with a hot or cold drink.  Marquee kindly provided by Pole to Pole Marquees.

100% of funds raised will go to provide humanitarian relief.  Homemade cakes are welcome to help raise money.

Sunday – 2nd April – Holy Communion followed by Café Church

Join us in St Mary’s at 9.15am for this beautiful short service of Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer) loved for the beauty of its language……

Followed by Café Church at 10am, when coffee, tea, bacon butties and cake will be served (no charge).

Enjoy friendly chat and gentle café jazz music.  At approximately 10.40 there will be a short, informal service of a hymn, reading, talk and prayers – we aim to finish by 11ish. Families are very welcome and Clare Bentham will lead the Children’s Corner.

Both services will be taken by Rob Rees.

Easter Sunday – 9th April – Family Service with Holy Communion – 9.45am

Join us in St Mary’s at 9.45am for an Easter Sunday Family Service with Holy Communion

The bell ringers will ring before the service

There will be singing by a Children’s Choir

And an Easter Egg hunt in the churchyard after the service.

Wednesday 12th April – Micheldever Village Lunch 12.30 in Northbrook Hall.

A freshly prepared 2-course lunch, a glass of sherry/wine, and coffee – all for £5!

It is a very sociable occasion where old friends meet and new friends are made. Please book by calling Tricia Patston 01962 795028.

Sunday 16th April

While Rob has a well-earned rest from Easter Services we encourage you to attend the delightfully pretty church of St James in Hunton

at 10am for a short, informal service.

Saturday 22nd April – St Mary’s Churchyard clear-up – 9.30 to midday

We are fortunate to have a truly beautiful churchyard which is tended by a team of fantastic Holy Mowers.

But we do need extra help to get the churchyard looking tidy for the summer.

Can you please spare some time to help us on Saturday morning 22nd April?

It’s great fun, lots of chatter and laughter, and coffee and biscuits.  What are you waiting for?

Sunday 30th April

The Dever Benefice congregation are invited to join the 11am service of Holy Communion at Winchester Cathedral.

And looking further ahead…..
