All Saints day was celebrated this Sunday, and as it was the first Sunday in November it was also our Family Eucharist. The Sunday School told us about St Jude, which was very topical as his day is 28th of October, the day of the recent storm. They told us that it is uncertain who he was, perhaps an apostle Thadeus, or a farmer who always carried a picture of Christ. He was Martyred in Ad65 with a club and an axe, and he is often depicted carrying these implements. He is the patron saint of lost causes and people with depression, there is a shrine to him in a church in Faversham Kent.
The Choir sang 'Give us the wings of faith' by Bulloch as the anthem.

In the afternoon we enjoyed an excellent concert from Frescala, a group of saxophone players,  followed by tea, and we await the total raised. Many thanks to the performers and the tea makers!!

Next Sunday will be the Act of Remembrance please note the service time is different
St Jude's Storm has blown down the leaves leaving us looking very wintry
