This is the third Sunday of June, and so our 10 o'clock service was Mattins. The Readings, from the King James Version of the Bible, where from Job and St Mark's Gospel. The latter telling the story of the raising of Jairus daughter. Father Stephen spoke in his sermon, of the compelling eye witness nature of the two stories included in this passage. St Mark is particularly vivid in his descriptions, many reported by St Peter to the author, this exciting narrative is inspiring and Father Stephen encouraged us all to read the good news and feel its truth and relevance.
It was the Royal School of Church Music designated 'Music Sunday' so the Choir sang John Rutters 'I will sing with the Spirit' as the Anthem. This piece was composed for the RSCM.
There was coffee after the service.

The date of the next event, the Saxophone Concert in the Lyton's garden on the 11th of July is fast approaching, tickets available from the Churh Wardens.

Also rapidly approaching is the Summer Fete, any offers of help before or after the Fete in the preparation and putting away of the Marquees etc will be gratefully received.

At this time of year beautiful flowers inside and out
