The first Sunday of the Year, and of the Month, our 10 am service was a family service. It also being the Feast of the Epiphany, we sang Carols associated with the arrival of the Magi, and the children and young people gave us a presentation about the story. Three youngsters took up the roles of the three camels who carried Caspar Melchior and Balthazar to see the Young Messiah. Although these names are traditional rather than biblical they, and their presents of Myrrh, Frankincense and Gold, represent the future of Jesus, who was a King, a Messiah and who's death on the cross is foreseen, in the gift of Myrrh used to prepare the dead for burial. The Narrator, in the Pulpit, Joseph Mary and the baby Jesus and the Kings themselves were all played by members of the Congregation, with a fine announcement from the Angel standing in the Organ loft, making a totally engaging story for everyone.
During the Offertory while we sang 'We three Kings of Orient are' Three Kings took up their gifts to the Altar.
After communion the Choir sang 'Nativity Carol' by John Rutter as the Anthem, and we closed our worship with the traditional,  'As with gladness men of Old'

There was coffee in the Rooms after the service.

Our next Social event will be a Moroccan Supper, once again Hillary and her Team will be producing a selection of delights, this time from North Africa. Tickets available from the Church Wardens, for this event on the 10th of February!
