Harvest festivals for school and church October 2015
On Monday the children brought many gifts of food which where placed around Church. They took part in their own school harvest festival with lovely speaking, singing and joined in Canon Chris's sermon about food around the world.
This was followed on Sunday by Harvest festival at 10.30 attended by all ages who brought fruit from around the world and many tins and packages. The brownies gave a very interesting presentation about the importance of eating fruit. They also showed their own illustrations and told us the story of Johnny Apple Seed. The Shepherd family led the intercessions. The flower team and the display team in the porch produced very special displays to add to our praise and thanks giving.
Back to School Sunday 20th September 2015

Shearly Cripps Orphanage in Zimbabwe
There was a wonderful congregation of all ages at todays service. The children worked hard to tell us all about education around the world and read the Intercessions for us all. There were many gifts brought for the Orphange which promptly made their way down to the Diocese of Rochester where Heather Sinclair will be finding people to take all the stationary out to the Orphange school in Zimbabwe. Thank you everyone.

How St Mary's Celebrated Easter 2013
Startin at 1.00 pm, the children had Fish Fingers, Chips and Beans for Good Friday lunch , played games and created our Easter Garden.
The congregation gathered in the church hall where palm crosses were blessed and a Gospel read.
We then processed out and around the church entering to place palms branches by the pews at the beginning of the service.
The side alter in the North Transept was dressed to represent the Garden of Gethsemane
The children began with Verity's Fish Finger, Baked Beans & Rolls 'special' for lunch (plus crisps & fruit juices). Niki & Andrea helped the children design their cakes & biscuits
Ian & Shirley, Karen & Julia oversaw the construction of our slightly different Easter Garden, which is presently on display in the North Transcept.
Later we joined the congregation as we laid our 'sad' & 'hurtful' things at the foot of the cross, mindful of the sacrifice that our Lord Jesus made for us that very first 'Good Friday'. Thankfully, we have just celebrated His resurrection this morning, to wipe away all our sadness, grief & fear. Praise the Lord!
The Church was decorated with flowers and a special poster
Following the marking and lighting of the Paschal Candle the congregation moved into the Church
The principle Christian Festival of the year was celebrated by the large congregation.

The Diamond Jubilee Prayer
God of time and eternity,
Sunday 13th November 2011
We did remember them.
The congregation of St Mary the Virgin Davyhulme were privileged to have veterans of the Second World War, other ex-service men and women who had seen active service across the world and a serving RAF officer in the congregation on Remembrance Sunday.
As a church family our act of worship included the planting of crosses bearing the names of service men and women from the parish who had given their lives whilst fighting for their country in the two world wars. These poppy crosses were laid by both children and adults.
The poppy wreaths in remembrance of those who had died in each world war, were laid by two members of our congregation, both veterans of the Second World War, one of whom had been a prisoner of war in Germany after being shot down in his Short Stirling bomber.
In addition a wreath in memory of those service people who had died in more recent conflicts was laid by a serving officer in the RAF, who was a former choirboy and crucifer at St Mary's.

Saturday 18th June 2011
Saturday 18 June was another milestone in the ministerial life of the Rev Andrea Jones, Assistant Curate at St Mary the Virgin, as she, along with 10 other of her colleagues from the Manchester Diocese, was ordained as a priest by the bishop of Middleton in Manchester Cathedral.
The church was full the following day, Sunday 19 June, as we welcomed back an old friend of our church, Bishop Steven, who preached at the 10.30am service where Rev. Andrea officiated at her first Eucharist.
Around 50 people gathered in the Church Hall from 09.30 hrs onwards to watch the Royal Wedding on a big screen, the atmosphere was fantastic, many of us were dressed up for the occasion with fancy hats, "Posh Frocks" and tantalisers.
Sound and Vision man David battled with short interruptions to the picture, which we now know were mainly due to the BBC Website being overloaded. We cheered and sang hymns, it was almost like being in Westminster Abbey !
After the Royal Couple had arrived at Buckingham Palace we toasted the Bride & Groom with a glass of bubbly, followed by a delicious cold lunch prepared by Yvonne.
After watching the kiss on the balcony and fly-past at 13.30 hrs (David had a good view !), we re-grouped for the afternoon celebrations which started at 14.30 hrs.
We took some photographs of the occasion
Our services for Holy Week and Easter captured the spirit of Christ's Death and Resurrection in Liturgy and symbolic Prayer Stations.
