This Sunday, the third Sunday in April, known as Good Shepard Sunday, our 10 o'clock service was Sung Mattins. The 23rd Psalm was the set psalm for today, and being in eastertide we sang the Benedictus. The Choir sang 'Brother James' Air as the Anthem, a setting of the words of the 23rd Psalm to a traditional tune.
We were joined by Godfrey Payne, who is second in command for the Salvation Army in Nigeria. He spoke about his life and work in Nigeria, describing some of the difficulties but also the wonderful enthusiasm of the people. The Collection from this service was given to the Salvation Army.
