From Christoph: Celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with us!

 

Dear friends,

What a wonderful start to the Platinum Jubilee today and the weather is certainly playing its part! 

At St Mary’s Church we are getting ready for our “Alternative Beacon Bonanza” evening later today. The concert is now fully booked and we sadly can’t offer any tickets at the door.

Let there be light: Tonight from 9.30pm
However: You are invited to join us outside St Mary’s from 9.30pm tonight as we get ready to count down to the lighting of St Mary’s as an “Alternative Beacon”. The lights will be switched on at 9.45pm and we will sing the Song for the Commonwealth and the National Anthem. Our bells will be rung. It will be a wonderful way to mark the end of the first day of this Platinum Jubilee.

St Mary’s Church open Friday and Saturday
Our  church is beautifully decorated with flowers and crowns decorated by various community groups in Denham. Do pop in on Friday or Saturday – the church will be open roughly from 10am to 6pm on both days. Printed Church guides will be available to explore St Mary’s Church.

Sunday: Celebration Service
Our all-age service on Sunday (10.30am) will be full of joy and celebration and suitable for all ages. It will include a family quiz and the winner will receive the delightful children’s book “The Queen who chose to serve”. The service will be live-streamed on Youtube in the usual way. After the service we will dedicate the newly planted tree in the churchyard, which is part of The Queen’s Green canopy (please note: we will not be able to stream this part). And – weather permitting – you are invited to bring a picnic and enjoy it in our churchyard. In the afternoon family games will be available and from 3pm to 5pm we will have the first of seven Royal Vestry Teas (whatever the weather)!

At all these events we would like to give you a beautifully illustrated book “Our Faithful Queen” as a gift. Do make sure to also pick up the special Jubilee issue of Denham Parish News. If you don’t live locally you can download a PDF of it here…

I look forward to seeing many of you over the next days.

Best wishes,
Christoph Lindner, Rector
