Morning Prayer, 5 July
Morning Prayer for Sunday 5 July from St Mary's Eaton Bray. The service can be followed using the Service Booklet for Sunday 5 July.
Following the statement of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, there will be no services at St Mary's, Eaton Bray or All Saints, Dagnall until further notice. We will however, be doing our best to meet the Archbishops' challenge to bring 'church' to people in different ways, so please revisit this website and our Facebook page.
If you are in need of help, please ring the Vicar on 01525 220261 or send a message via the contact page.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Following new guidance from the government and the diocese, St Mary's, Eaton Bray will be open for private prayer on Sundays 11-4 and Wednesdays 10-4. Please read the notices inside the church.
All Saints, Dagnall will remain closed until further notice.
Donate to St Mary's
St Mary's now has an online giving platform. It has been suggested to the PCC that some church members will have made a big saving on petrol during these weeks of lockdown and so might like to donate one week's worth of petrol (or more!) to help us make up for the fund raising events we haven't been able to hold and which are so important in maintaining our historic church.
If you can help, be one of the first to use our new platform. Many thanks!
St Mary's is improving drainage in the churchyard
In recent years the ground adjacent to the boilerhouse has become quite boggy with overflow of rainwater coming from the downpipes and pumped up from the basement of the boilerhouse. This year we hope to improve the drainage by renovating the soakaway. For more information see here.
