Our weekly pewsheet has announcements, news, collects and thought for the week.

This year we celebrate over 800 years of Christian presence and witness in our community. 2015 marks a significant anniversary for St Mary's. Following the sealing of Magna Carta on 15th June 1215, Archbishop Stephen Langton returned to London and tradition says that he stopped in Barnes to consecrate the newly enlarged parish church of St Mary's.

Our own Magna Carta Festival runs from 20th to 23rd May with floral displays, special events and talks, a family day and much more. The festival will be launched by Lord Melvyn Bragg at a Preview Evening on 19th May.

Magna Carta Walk the Walk: Walk as a pilgrim along the Thames from Runnymede to Barnes, Saturday 13th to Monday 15th June, arriving in time to attend the anniversary service at St Mary's. For more information contact Geoffrey Barnett.

A full list of the events planned to mark this historic year at St Mary's are listed in our 2015 Church Planner and also on the official Magna Carta website.
