Mildenhall Anglican Church

Forest Heath Community Radio station 105.3 fm ("Zack fm")

Please encourage friends and neighbours, especially those unable to get to church, to tune in at 9am on Sundays, for the previous week’s service at St Mary's Mildenhall. There is also a Christian programme of contemporary songs between 6am & 8am. 

May our faith be deepened and renewed this Lent and Easter time, as we ponder and celebrate the new life  which Jesus offers.

An Easter Promise

If we had the eyes to see

God’s face in every cloud,

If we had the ears to hear

His voice above the crowds

If we could feel his gentle touch

In every Springtime breeze

And find a haven in His arms

‘Neath sheltering, leafy trees

If we could lift our hearts

Like flowers to the sun

And trust His Easter Promise

And pray,’Thy Will be done’

We’d find the peace we’re seeking,

The kind no man can give,

The peace that comes from knowing

He died so we might live.

From Christine Slack Food Bank Manager

Please may I thank you very much for your support of the King’s Project  recently. May I take this opportunity not only to convey thanks from myself and the Kiing’s Project Team, but also from those who benefit from the emergency food bags living in the town and surrounding area. With donations from yourselves and others we are able to help hundreds of people each year.

From Mary Rolfe on behalf of the Mildenhall AreaWWDP Com.

May I,  express a sincere 'Thank You' to all those from the St Mary's, Mildenhall who took part in or attended the Women's World Day of Prayer.

We were privileged to have two well-attended services with a total of 86 people attending (including some men). None of this would be possiblewithout the generous interest and support of all the local churches.  God Bless.
