This Sunday our service was Sung Mattins. The Autumn is upon us now and the walk to church was through a damp churchyard with many trees already bare of their leaves. We were without Joanna today, so the piano was played by Beryl Rodd, and the choir sat by the piano for the service. Many thanks to Beryl for standing in. The New Testament lesson was the parable of the Talents, which Father Stephen explored further in his sermon, the talent, or valuable thing, we have been given in the scriptures and the Good News of the Gospel, and evangelism is the way to use and increase our talents and our community of Christians. we prayed particularly for the Syrian Orthodox church in these times of trouble.

If you would like to join us to make an Advent ring/wreath on the afternoon of Sunday 30th November and enjoy tea with us, please sign up at the back of the church so we can plan materials and food!!

The Christmas Fair will be on the 6th December in the Church Hall.
