The family Christingle service was well supported and provided the usual magical scene when the candles were lit and the children led the way around the church as the lights were switched off gradually.

Thanks go to Waitrose who kindly donated the oranges, and also to those who decorated them with help from the children.

There will be five Lent Lunches this year – please give them your support but do let the hostesses know if you are coming along, just to give them some idea of the number to cater for.  All start at 12.30pm.

A large number of us attended the Service of Thanksgiving for the life of the Revd Canon Roy Brown at Harbury Church.  Roy was vicar of Tysoe, Oxhill & Whatcote for many years and we remember him as a warm friendly man who always kept in touch with us here, and we send Pam and the family our sincere sympathy.

We are sorry to learn that Mr David Matthews has died, and we send our condolences to his family.  David will be remembered by all of us at St Mary’s for his artistic drawing of the Church, which he drew originally for the Church Restoration Fund, and which features on so many postcards, letterheads, etc. As we go to press, we hear that Peter Neal’s mother and Mrs Joan Butcher have sadly died and we send both families our sympathy.


Our Methodist friends are invited to St Mary’s for our joint Family Mothering Sunday service on 11th March at 11.00am, and we are  invited to share with them in a United Good Friday Service at the Chapel at 10.00am on Good Friday 30th March.
