The Departed





will be available in church from Ash Wednesday. We will again be supporting the Bishop of Chelmsford’s Lent Appeal, in aid of our link diocese of Marsabit,  one of the poorest dioceses in Kenya. Bishop Qampicha attended the ordination here last year. This year we are joining them in raising money for emergency water trucking to drought effected populations. This will improve access to water for drinking, cooking and hygiene. More information from www.chelmsford.anglican.org/lentappeal



will be a week later than usual on Monday 19th February at the Rose and Crown from 9.00am.



in February will be on Monday 19th at 11.00am. We are always pleased to have members of the congregation to join the choir for the service.



We have been asked to announce that his funeral will be in the Crematorium on 27th February at 1.30pm. Some may remember him as a member of the congregation at All Saints



Please note there will be no choir practice on Thursday 15th February.



There are more details about our forthcoming Mystery Play in this month’s magazine. Now that rehearsals for the project are under way, it would be especially good if some of you would undertake to pray for all of us as actors, choir, technical team , stage team and publicity.  Canon Graham



The season of Lent begins on Wednesday 14th February with a Eucharist at 7.30pm at All Saints, there will be Holy Communion at 10.00am at St Andrew’s Heybridge, taken by Fr John Dickens



The first of the 5 sessions commence in the D'Arcy Room on Wednesday February 21st, 10.30am-12.00. This year's subject will be prayer.

Though each session will have a speaker on various aspects of prayer, there will also be an opportunity to actually do it!  We hope, as in previous years, to have some of our friends from Churches Together in Maldon to join us.

Before we came to Maldon I was village co-ordinator for Neighbourhood Watch in East Hanningfield.  One day a health professional / first responder gave my committee a brief course in what to do in the event of a life threatening emergency.

Is anybody interested as the lady in question could repeat the short course one evening for up to 6 people?  I have in mind a situation such as the one Tobias Ellwood found himself in outside the Palace of Westminster last year he went to the aid of a fatally wounded Police constable.

If you were in a similar situation would you want to help, or walk away?  If the former, please contact me. Geoff Dickman.



This is going to be a major event in the life of our parish this year, both in fundraising and bringing many visitors to our church. If you are willing to help on one of the days of the Festival, particularly with catering and stewarding and for making cakes! Please see lists at back of church.

There are rotas helping in the kitchen and making cakes, please put your name down if you are able to cover any of these. Many thanks
