This morning we met at 10 am for a parish Eucharist, Father Stephen and Father Roger were both with us, Father Stephen preached the sermon, the Gospel to day was from St Luke and recounts Our Lord teaching the disciples to pray, using what we call the Lord's Prayer. Father Stephen spoke of the intimacy of our relationship with God, he is our Father, and the close daily relationship in our lives, and yet we hallow or make Holy his name, The whole of Christian Devotion is wrapped up in this one straightforward prayer.

The Choir  sang 'O Lord my God' by Samuel Sebastian Wesley as the Anthem.

At coffee after the service there was lots of talk about the Fete yesterday! Having woken to a downpour,  by midday the rain had stopped and the afternoon was dry and cloudy with sunny periods, perfect Fete weather. We were happy to welcome a very good crowd to buy from the stalls, listen to the Chichester City Band, attend the Dog Show, and have a go at various side shows. The Mini Show had nearly 50 entries and very splendid vegetables and floral displays were on show in the Parish Rooms, while in the Church there was an exhibition of paintings by local artists. There was a beer tent, a barbque and the best ice cream in West Sussex on sale from Caroline's Dairy. An excellent time was had by all!!
