A CHALLENGE

The Warren Foundation have issued a challenge to the Parochial Church Council. "If you will raise 200 by the 31st March, 1974 towards the cost of repairs to St. Mary's Church, we will give the same amount, for . If you do your part by September, 1973 - you can have our share in October after the autumn meeting of the Foundation Trustees.
The origins of this challenge go back nearly two years when the foundation was first approached for a small grant to assist with the repairs which were known to be necessary after the architect's five-yearly survey of the Church. In the first place the Foundation wrote back to say that they thought that we had enough funds to complete the first stage, and they wanted us to apply again when stage two was about to be started.
It's now the policy of the Warren Foundation only to give help to those churches which are also prepared to help themselves. This challenge to us is a result of this new policy.
Naturally enough, I have written to the Trustees to take up the gauntlet. With the perpetually rising costs of these days, It is clearly in our parish's interests to raise our 200 as quickly as possible, so that the equal sum from the trustees will be worth as much as possible before a considerable part of its value is absorbed by inflation.
Rather than waste time in intricate planning, and so miss this issue of the magazine, I can announce now that there will be a GIFT DAY at (and for) ST. MARY'S on Thursday, 31st May - ASCENSION DAY, from 7.30 am - 7.30 pm.

HOLY COMMUNION 7.30 am

SCHOOL EUCHARIST 9 am

CHORAL EVENSONG 7.30 pm

The Vicar and/ or Mr. Emerson will be in Church throughout the day to receive your gifts.

REMEMBER THAT EVERY 1p or EVERY 1 is WORTH DOUBLE
