A Wimbledon Treasure and Worship in the Wild

Published on Sunday 5 April 2020

It was a great comfort to be gathered with you virtually this morning as we prayed together at 10am. Thank you to Nils for his thought provoking address on Palm Sunday and to Yunghee for her wonderful Donkey Parade. It was lovely to see you and your donkeys. Thank you also to our musicians.

This evening we are uploading an prerecorded service of Book of Common Prayer Evensong. This is a service that usually happens weekly at St Mary's. You might like to drop in and give it a try if you don't usually come.

A Wimbledon Treasure nominated by Kitty Kleyn

One little Wimbledon Treasure of mine is a little bench tucked away beneath the white Magnolia tree at the back of the rose garden in Cannizaro Park. Though overlooked by the sweet Keir Cottage, it's a quiet spot with little footfall, perfectly positioned for a pretty view -- especially in late spring through summer when the Magnolia tree opens up its leaves, the garden beds burst with red roses and the wisteria climbs along the old wall. It's beautiful to sit here in the dappled shade, being able to listen to the birdsong and children playing, seeing the odd spaniel or two race through the hedges and feeling part of the World without being in the centre of everything.

Why not print this out and take it on your daily outing for exercise? You won't find everything in it in Wimbledon, but there is quite a lot you will. You might also like to take photographs of things that you do see and send them in with an appropriate reflection and Bible text.

Keep well and keep in touch.

With much love

Mandy
