Today our 10 am Eucharist was a celebration of Christ the King, this being the last Sunday of the liturgical year. This Sunday, the traditional collect began with the words, 'Stir up, we beseech thee Oh Lord, the wills of thy faithful people', and this prayer was used at the close of our service today. The cold frosty weather reminded us that Christmas is just around the corner, and next Sunday will be Advent Sunday.
In the service today the Gospel was from St Matthew the passage where Jesus describes the day of Judgement, and how those who care for others are in fact caring for Our Lord, and Father Stephen in his sermon developed this theme, that we are not perfect, but must strive to deal with those around us with the love and care we would give to Our Lord, and that this christian expression in every day life is perhaps more important than our, also necessary, worship and prayer.

The Choir sang Oh Thou the Central Orb by Charles Wood as the Anthem. There was coffee after the service in the Rooms.

This Afternoon we followed the tradition of Stir up Sunday by making a Giant Bowl of Christmas Pudding mix!  The mixture for 12 puddings was prepared and mixed by all and finished by adding some brandy!! We all filled our own bowls, and we have 4 lovely family sized puddings for sale at the Christmas fair next Saturday! We then enjoyed some tea before clearing up and going home with our Christmas preparations underway.
