What’s Happening this Week 

It’s nearly time to open the doors and welcome the people of Mansfield to join us at a
Re-opening Celebration Service on Sunday 2nd July at 4.00pm with Bishop Tony

Plenty of invitations have been printed for you to pass on to your family and friends, to join the church family of
St John’s with St Mary’s to praise God for answered prayer and blessings too numerous to count.

Please remember that on this special Celebration Sunday, this will be the only service taking place at St John’s, but you are all
welcome to join together in worship at St Mary’s at 10.00am.

Bishop Tony will lead us in our communion service and worship before we share together in a celebration buffet tea.
