At St Mary’s Church in Thatcham, three purple candles have been waiting to be lit following the consecration of a female bishop in the Church of England. This we are now doing on 2nd February – Candlemas at 7.30pm at St Mary’s, Thatcham. Olivia Graham, Archdeacon of Berkshire, will preside and Christine Allsopp is preaching. If you know anyone who might be interested, please do let them know – it is open invitation. Please bring a purple candle if you can, and also some food to share afterwards.
