Another glorious summer's morning for our service today. We had Mattins as it is the third Sunday in July. Father Stephen took the service and the readings were from Amos and St Mark's Gospel. The latter telling the story of St John the Baptist and his death at the request of Salome. It was this well known story that Father Stephen talked about in his sermon. John was superseded by Jesus, and his disciples joined those following Jesus. John had been outspoken in his criticism of Herod, because he married his sister in law, and lived a dissolute life. It was his stepdaughter, Salome , who asked for John's head, and conveniently ended the stream of criticism. John shows us an example of one who spoke the truth and followed the way to God.
The choir sang the Benedictus in C major by C V Stanford and also as the Anthem Jesu joy of man's desiring by JS Bach.

We continue to prepare for the fete, and all contributions ahead of time can be left with Janet Harland at Russetts. Books, bottles, toys, clothing in good condition, jam jars, both filled and empty! all gratefully received

A photo of our newly restored gates, which were put back in place this week
This morning we celebrated our 10 am Eucharist  with Father Stephen as the celebrant. The continued warm weather meant that even with all the doors open the usually cool church was quite warm! The service included the anthem Panis Angelicus by Cesar Franck, sung by the choir. The Sunday School joined us for the distribution of Communion, and there was coffee after the service.

We are now with in sight of the Fete, please if you have raffle tickets, return sold stubs and money to the Church Wardens. All is now a hive of activity preparing for Saturday the 28th on the Vicarage field! All offers of help in preparing, and dismantling the fete gratefully received

Next week our Sunday 10 am service will be Mattins.

The first Sunday of the month is our Family Service, so we decided to celebrate Sea Sunday this week instead of next week. Father Stephen is back with us, and he introduced the presentation by the Sunday School, telling the story of Jesus calming the waters on the Sea of Gallille. We also inducted a new junior chorister, Tilly, and as is our tradition she was 'sung in' by the other choristers, and some adults with Lead me Lord.

The choir sang 'Never Weatherbeated Sail' as the anthem, and the final hymn was 'Eternal Father Strong to Save' continuing our Sea Sunday theme.

There was coffee after the service, this week the soft toy tombolla is appealing for those unwanted soft toys you have!
