This morning is the third Sunday in the month, so our 10 o'clock service was Mattins. Another beautiful spring morning with blue skies and no wind, the churchyard looking beautiful with spring flowers we assembled for our service, The psalm set for the day was psalm 121, and, it being Lent we sang the Benedicite omnia opera instead of the Te Deum. The new testament lesson from St John's Gospel chapter three told of the conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus, and Father Stephen took up the story of Nicodemus in his sermon. The Choir sang 'O Saviour of the World' setting by J Goss.

NOTICE the Annual Parochial Church Meeting will take place on the 13th. of April following the service at approximately 11 o'clock. This is Palm Sunday, so the meeting will probably commence as soon after the end of the service as is possible. Everyone is most welcome to attend this meeting, but if you wish to vote you need to be on the Electoral Roll of St Mary's, the roll is displayed at the back of the Church.
