Welcome to St Mary's Church Sandbach

Revd Bee behind alter in front of choir stalls

Wishing you a Peaceful,

Happy, and Healthy New Year

from all at St Mary's Church Sandbach

 

Heaven’s gift of another year
As the old departs and the new is born,
Plans for a future and a hope
Preparing us for each new dawn.
Yesterday has gone forever,

New days and ventures lie ahead,
Even darkness turns to light
When we make the Lord our head.

Yielding to the Holy Spirit
Ever mindful that He’s there,
As we live our lives before Him
Rejoicing in His loving care.

By Megan Carter
