Are you aware of what’s going on outside our cosy church walls? St Mary’s is part of the Chelmsford diocese and the national C of E church. It’s easy to miss the overview, particularly when local issues are crowding in and demand our attention – so few people to do so many jobs…!
But think of our local St Mary’s church as just one fragment of a stained glass window: it only begins to make sense when you can see the whole picture. Lifting one’s eyes above the local horizon can be both liberating and stimulating.
If you’d like to take a peek at that church world outside Wivenhoe of which we are part then the Diocesan E-bulletin has the information.
