Parish Prayer

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  AMEN

Collect for the 2nd Sunday in Advent


Together with our Parish Mission Statement our Theme scripture is;

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, 

and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love”

1 John 4: 7-8

St Martin's Defibrillator - Official Unveiling
A new defibrillator has been installed in Chavey Down,  unveiled by Councillor Nigel Atkinson representing Winkfield Parish Council and Reverend Patrick Mukholi of St Martin’s Church Chavey Down.  The defibrillator has been purchased and installed using donations from the Parish Council,  Department of Health & Social Care and the local table tennis club. Council Atkinson said "We’re pleased to provide a donation towards this new defibrillator for the residents of Chavey Down and congregation of St Martin’s Church. It’s also great to see local residents actively involved in the defibrillator training”, Reverend Mukholi added "It's always a great feeling to see a community rally together for such a universally helpful project. I am sure this defibrillator will save many lives in the days and years to come. Thanks be to God"
Installed on the outside wall of the church hall in Chavey Down and available 24 hours a day the defibrillator joins an important network of life saving devices covering the local area and will be maintained by the local church.

In an emergency, it can be accessed by calling 999 and following the instructions

Andrea’s & Penny’s Plants 

Thank you so much for all your support on Sunday at our Patronal Festival and throughout the year. We hope you get much pleasure from the plants in the future. Please return any empty pots to St Peter's porch, although we won't need the planter pots back until the Autumn.
Thank you. Andrea & Penny

Penny's Marmalade & Jam

Penny's Marmalades update: - the bad news and the good!

Sadly due to increasing costs, from 1 March I will be asking for a donation of £2.50 per jar for my marmalades (and jam in season). I hope you will all still think they are good value and continue to buy, as all money goes to St Peter's church fundraising.
I would like to thank everyone who has returned their empty jars but at present I don't need anymore as I have a jar mountain in my garage!  If I may, I'll let you know when I need replenishing. 
The good news:  to help use these empty jars and donate a bit towards general Parish funds, from 1 March I'll donate 50% of any jars sold to St Mary's and St Martin's congregations/friends, to Winkfield funds, so please get those orders coming in!  🙂
Thanks to all who have supported me in the past, and I hope you will continue to do so in the future.  Any queries, please contact me on or 01344 308646/ 07871 440196.
