This Sunday, being the third sunday of June, our service was Matins. 30 or so people joined us and Father Stephen lead the service. Joanna our Organist was away this weekend, so we must thank Michael Walsh for kindly taking Choir Practice and playing for the service. The choir, also rather reduced in numbers, non the less sang 'Almighty and Everlasting God' music by Orlando Gibbons.

The PCC met this week, here is an unusual panaramic picture of the meeting



On Sunday evening we were entertained by the Jazz Smugglers an fantastic evening was spent in workshop style, with the band playing various styles of jazz which was beautifully explained by John, their leader. Members of the audience joined in, some members of the Choir learned a bit about singing jazz in the 'scat' style, and one of the audience joined in on guitar with very impressive talent!! A retiring collection raised £100 towards the new parish rooms. It was a realy enjoyable evening, something quite different from our usual music and great fun! Many thanks to all the Jazz Smugglers.
