Thoughts and Musings

November 2018

This year has seen the 100th anniversary of the end of the ‘war to end all wars’. Sadly that was not the case, but at 11am on the 11th November 1918 the guns did fall silent. Last weekend, on Remembrance Sunday, we commemorated this at St. Mary’s.

This year it seemed to have an ever deeper relevance. The service in church and the following act of remembrance at the Knutton war memorial were very well attended. Jesus came to bring peace, let us ask for his Shalom (the Hebrew word for peace) that one day the guns will fall silent forever.

There are photos of what went on here on the website. To conclude just 2 well known phrases heard at remembrance.

From For the fallen by Laurence Binyon
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.”

Kohima Epitaph
“When you go home, Tell them of us and say
For your tomorrow, We gave our today.”

Who we are

We are a fairly traditional Village Church but always open to new ways of reaching out through worship to our local communities and congregation. St Mary's mission is to make Jesus real in today’s life and part of this is to welcome our friends from the Indian Orthodox Church to worship with us. Our church, part of the Church of England, has a dedicated volunteer leadership team headed by the vicar. As well as giving support and guidance, St Mary's provides a sanctuary at the heart of Knutton.

"We want to discern what God is doing in His world and join in…serving our neighbours, community and wider world."

Where are we

St Mary's is easily accessible with nearby carparks. The Church is in the centre of the Village of Knutton. Parking is available either on street or on the Community Centre Car Park across from the Church itself.
