Read what Bishop Michael of Lichfield says about why baptism is so important as a precious gift from God and why we need to take it seriously . This weeks bible reading tells the story from Marks gospel about Jesus ' baptism , so read what God said to him as he came up out of the water and as Christians as we are baptised those same words are true for us too !

Read how two members of our church family  Frank and Tina Mugglestone volunteer their time and skills to a local organisation called Sanctus which is financially  supported by St. Mary's . Sanctus  provides practical help and support  and befriending to assylum seekers and refugees who have sought sanctuary here and are isolated.

Nesta Williams has contributed the intercessions this week.
