Our Matins Service today was taken by Father Roger, as Father Stephen was away. The Psalm for the day was Psalm 14, and the Readings from the King James Version of the Bible were from Exodus and St John's Gospel. Father Roger explained that this Sunday was being kept as Holy Cross day, an opportunity to think about the Cross and its significance away from the heightened emotion of Holy Week and Easter. He considered the need for Jesus to make the sacrifice of the cross and how this might be viewed, but in the end, his sacrifice has set us free from sin.

The Choir sang 'Lord for thy tender mercy's sake' Words  Bull, Music Farrant arr Greening.

The Harvest Supper is to be on Saturday the 5th of October tickets are 4 pounds and can be obtained from Chris Field or Elizabeth Alwyn.
