The first Sunday of the new church year and we opened our 10am Eucharist with the Palestrina Matin Responsory sung by the Choir. Our service continued with the lighting of the first candle on our

Advent wreath, and then we continued with the form of the Eucharist for Advent, omitting the Gloria. Father Stephen spoke in his sermon of our need to wait and be prepared for the second coming, which will come when no one expects it, as well as looking forward to the approaching festival of Christmas.
During Communion the Choir sang 'This is the truth sent from above' setting by R Vaughn-Williams.

There was coffee after the service.

In the afternoon we had our traditional afternoon of making Advent Wreaths and tea in the church hall. the wreathes were gathered together at the end of the afternoon and blessed by Father Stephen. then we had a splendid tea before setting off home with our wreathes. This was a splendid occasion many thanks to Anwyl, Janet, Chris, Anne and Marilyn for the organisation and the tea.

Next Saturday afternoon is the Christmas Fair, come along and buy your christmas present or enjoy some refreshments! On the 11th of December in the afternoon the Sunday School is holding a charity sale, a display of Christmas cribs from all over the world, and a wonderful story teller will finish off the afternoon, do come along to the Church for this event
