Acorn Group


Lord God, you chose and appointed us to be a holy people.
May we reflect your love in all we think, say and do.

As the acorn becomes a great oak tree, may your Church grow strong
with healthy roots and spreading branches.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Acorn Group is a working group from the PCC and has been set up to look at current church life in the light of the survey undertaken in April 2001 (Church Life Profile). The group members are Richard Noble, Peter Brittain, Roger Cresswell and the Vicar.

The task of the group is to make recommendations which will enable the development of the life and outreach of St Mary's Church.

The connection between acorns and St Mary's, and, therefore the name of the working group, is that just as an acorn sits in its cup, so the working group is cradled in the PCC and nourished by our Church worship, symbolised by the Chalice. Just as the acorn puts down roots in the soil and grows into a big oak tree, leaving no trace behind, so we hope to enable St Mary's Church to reach out into the 'fertile soil' that is the locality of Buckden, and so grow into a strong church like the big oak tree in the church yard.

We come together in church to worship God, to hear His word and to share the Good news of Jesus,
receiving forgiveness and renewal through His death and resurrection.

We are sent out from church to live as Christian disciples, showing love to others
and living out our faith in all we think, say and do.
