God’s World Through my Window

For Lent Linda has created a series of short reflections on nature for St Helen’s school. We thought you might like to see them too.

The Ark on Zoom on Thursday!
It was lovely to chat and share stories, craft and songs with families last week. Do join us this week!

On Thursdays from 10.30-11.30, parents, grandparents and carers can enjoy a very informal session with their pre-school children, toddlers and babies. This will be the last session before Easter.

For the link, more information or any questions, email Linda on


Can you help?
Azalea, our charity partner in Luton, needs a large upright fridge to store unwanted fresh food donated by supermarkets under the FareShare scheme. This can then be used to make meals for the women they support.
If you can help, please contact Vicky Puttock via Mel in the church office

During Lent we are offering a shorter, even more relaxed and informal opportunity to gather for prayer on Thursday at midday for just 15 minutes.  There will be a chance to chat and catch up afterwards.

We will be using the Pray for the Nation leaflet and themes from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and our own Prayer Calendar.  Most of you will have received a copy of these with our latest Newsletter.  Or you can download copies to print at home…

Feeling crafty?

Sketch and paint a stone with your Easter-inspired image then hide it in the village for someone to find. Before you hide it, why not post a photo on Facebook (the church, school or Network page) Suitable for all ages – full instructions here.


Help is at hand!
We have set up teams offering both pastoral and practical support, so please let others support you – they are keen to do so! Hilary Hollick is helping organise this – so do contact her by email here, or on 01582 832567.  Alternatively call the village wide helpline “Support for All” on 01582 380910.
