The Feast of Christ the King marks the last Sunday of the church's year with a joyful festival. We celebrated our  Eucharist with a festal frontal on the alter and with Father Stephen in festal vestments. The theme of the service was Christ as King in glory, and Father Stephen told us in his sermon about the process of anointing as a mark of dedication to Christ, used at Baptism, Confirmation and on becoming a Priest, this tradition goes back to the anointing of Aaron in the Old Testament and is also mentioned in Genesis. it marks out  Christians as priests and witnesses to Christ's glory, and unites us all.
The Choir sang Ave Verum in the setting by Edward Elgar as the anthem, and our closing Hymn was 'Christ Tiumphant'

Next week on Advent Sunday we will have our Family Service which will incorporate the Christingle service. Please bring back any Children's Society boxes you may have at home.

On Sunday Afternoon the Advent Wreath making and Tea is from 2:30 to 5:30 in the Church Hall. Sign the list in Church if you would like to join us!
