Burnham Deepdale

Sea Service at St. Mary's, Burnham Deepdale

We hope to welcome many of you, and that definitely includes families, to our annual Sea Service at 6pm on Sunday 16 July.

As is done every year, the church will have been specially decorated by the Southerland family for this celebration of the sea and the sea-side and all we receive from them. Come and join in the singing of the strong seamen’s hymns, listen to some interesting readings and give thanks for all the good things we enjoy from the sea. A collection will be taken for the RNLI and the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Books wanted for St. Mary's, Burnham Deepdale

After Easter we will again be selling second hand books in the church porch. If you have any books of a light nature (eg novels and travel books) that you no longer want, we would love to have them. (However, please note that technical and text books are not wanted as they do not sell). Please drop them off at Deepdale Farmhouse or in the church porch.

Thank you.

News from Deepdale Church

Second-hand Books
From the early May Bank Holiday we will have books for sale in the church porch until the end of the summer. If you have any novels or sellable non-fiction books, we'd love to have them. We don't have too much room and highly technical books don't sell well, so please give them to a more deserving home.

All proceeds will go to Deepdale Church maintenance fund.

Thank you.
