As we think of our Vicar, Revd Huw Mordecai on sick-leave, we can interact with him in our minds by reading his perceptive wise and often moving Musings from a Mordecai. These have been posted almost week by week since 1 April, and 'back-numbers- can be downloaded.

The Women’s Guild At Home scheduled for 4 August was postponed because of Covid-19 regulations concerns. The raffle for two hampers will take place after the 11am Holy Communion Service at St Mary’s on Sunday 16 August.

Cadillac Mountain
Picture of the day (click on image for full size view): Cadillac Mountain is not really a mountain - it is the main 1000ft feature of a big promontory just south of Bar Harbour, a major fishing port on the Maine coastline, which also features whale-watching and cosiderable consumption of lobsters. Cadillac is in the Acadia Park, a major recreation area, and climbing the mountain is a popular, pleasurable but not too challenging place to test a head for heights.

There will be live services at St Mary's Church at 16/8/20. If you are unable to attend live services, the 11am livestream Sunday service will take place each week. (You can join it any time after 10:45am.)

Please also join us for a live stream Evening Prayer/Compline service, which takes place at 8:15pm every Thursday evening.

There is now a Morning Prayer service at 9.15 on Tuesdays. (Click the link for details).

Projects

The Electrics project

St Mary's electrics

The electric wiring in St Mary's needs to be brought into the 21st century! The Friends are progressively building a fund to support this vital work - which can be completed in stages. Better and more reliable lighting (which will also cost much less to run) is an element of this project which will be particularly welcomed by all visitors and members of the congregation. Work is scheduled to start in 2019.

Like all aspects of St Mary's Church, the is a project that 'belongs' to the St Mary's PCC, who have now given the go-ahead for definition of what needs to be done and its phasing. The Friends of St Mary's Winkfield will give a substantial grant to the PCC that will enable this to be done. A committee has been established to supervise the work.

St Mary's Bell Ringers have kindly raised funds, held by FOSMW, to be used specifically for this purpose. This augments the £830 already raised by St Mary's Women's Guild, which is in funds held by the PCC. The Friends are ready to apply a large proportion of thwir reserves
