Local cards with a difference

Gentle, timeless watercolours depicting such local landmarks as St Marys Church and the Shire Hall, along with other Suffolk scenes and locations, are part of a new Hallo Cards range, now available from St Marys Shop. Several of the cards are on sale for the first time in the shop and staff are now talking to Hallo about producing a new range of local postcards, a 2009 calendar which would go on sale in the autumn and a St Marys Christmas card. Why not come see the cards for yourself?

His Story bracelets

NEW! A wider range of His story bracelets now in St Marys Shop! Rather like a rosary, each bead in a His story bracelet has a special significance, made easier to remember by the different shapes and colours. Among our best-selling gifts, these unusual bracelets come attractively boxed, with a prayer card setting out the meaning of each bead. Topics now include The Lords Prayer, Love (I Corinthians 13), Psalm 23, Nativity Story, Serenity, First Communion, Footprints and An Irish Blessing.

We also have a new stock of Christian greetings cards, with Biblical verses, and a good choice of Easter cards.

Try our Sunday School

If youre a certain age church in small doses can be quite fun but not necessarily the whole service. St Marys Sunday School is now offering children and their parents! the best of both worlds: come and join the grown ups for the first hymn of the 10 am Eucharist and then go off to your own gathering in St Marys House. Sunday School, which is fairly elastic in age range but roughly caters for 4-8 year olds, is run by a team of mums who take it in turns to provide children with a selection of stories, prayers and other things to do each Sunday. Children are brought back into church and reunited with parents towards the end of the service. Plans are also afoot to start a crèche for the under fours and details will be available in church or in the next issue of Outlook as soon as this is up and running.
