 This Sunday our 10 o'clock Eucharist was celebrated by Father Stephen. We were delighted to welcome Alan Thurlow to play the Organ for us, as Joanna was away. The Gospel this morning included the account of the death of John the Baptist, and the role of Herod and Salome. In his Sermon Father Stephen told us of the Herod Family and their terrible actions, but pointed out that Herod was fascinated by the preaching of John the Baptist. Many today are mired in terrible behaviours, but by turning to Christ all can be overcome. The Choir sang Ave Verum Corpus  in the setting by Edward Elgar as the anthem.

Many thanks to both Alan and Tina Thurlow for the music this morning.

The next big event for us is, of course, the Fete, to which ever one is welcome! But just beyond that on the 1st of August, which is Yorkshire Day, we are to have a Yorkshire Tea, Hilary Platts is preparing all sorts of Yorkshire treats for us, the tea will be served at 'Russetts' and tickets are now available for the Church Wardens, do come along!
