This morning at our 10 o'clock Eucharist, we had our family service, it being the first Sunday of the month. Unfortunately Father Stephen is unwell, so we were very happy to welcome Father David Gibbons, who kindly stepped in and took our services. The Gospel this morning told the story of the resurrection of Lazarus from St John's Gospel. Father David talked to us about this story, particularly to the children, and told us that this same resurrection happens inside us as we grow in the Holy Spirit through our Christian lives.
The Junior choristers were with the Adult choir this morning and together they sang 'O saviour of the World'  setting by John Stainer, from the longer work The Crucifixion.
Coffee was served after the service in the North Transept. Many Thanks to Father David for taking the service.

Next Sunday is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week, we seem to have been waiting a long time to reach Holy Week with Easter being so late this year. We hope you will join us for the Palm Sunday Service to include a Procession with Palms, and stay afterwards for the Annual Parish Meeting, to listen to the reports and to elect Church Wardens, PCC members, and Deanery Synod representatives for the coming year.

 Do not for get the Organ Recital on the 27th of April in Church. Daniel Phillips will play a selection of pieces, followed by tea. Retiring collection for the New Parish Annex.
