LENT GIVING 2021
This Lent St Mary’s is supporting the Five Talents charity, raising funds for the Bishop of Chelmsford’s Annual Appeal to finance work in our link diocese of Marsabit in Kenya. Marsabit is a dry, arid region where 80% of the people live below the national poverty line of £25 a month. Five Talents provides training in literacy, numeracy and basic business skills which in turn facilitate savings and loans co-operatives, predominately of women, to help develop businesses and so ensure children are educated, thus improving many peoples’ lives. Even a small donation will help. For more information and to donate go to: www.chelmsford.anglican.org/bishops-appeal/ or put your cash donation (or cheque payable to CDBF) in an envelope labelled “ Five Talents donation” and drop it off to the Vicarage or Anne Hackworth, Lances, Church Street, or Simon Prideaux, 59 Heron Road, or we can collect it – just call Anne on 01376 571289.

LENT GROUP ON ZOOM - STARTING TUESDAY 23rd FEBRUARY
Our new Tuesday evening Zoom Lent Group starts this Tuesday, 23rd February at 8.00 pm. We’re reading Being Disciples, a very short book by Rowan Williams (SPCK, 2016 – ISBN 978-0-281-07662-8). Only 80 pages, it’s a rich, thoughtful book that repays time given to it; it’s also very accessible, quite easy to read and widely available to buy online. There will be 6 sessions, based on the 6 chapters: ‘Being disciples’; ‘Faith, hope and love’; ‘Forgiveness’; ‘Holiness’; ‘Faith in society’; and ‘Life in the Spirit’. Each session will last about an hour, and we do hope you can join us. Here are the Zoom details:
