This Sunday, the third in September, we had Matins as our 10:am service. The Readings this morning, from the Book of Wisdom and from St Mark's Gospel. In his Sermon Father Stephen pointed out that many who do not believe in the Bible do not know its contents so cannot see the amazing truth it tells. The reading from the book of Wisdom pre-dates the time of the Gospel story by 300 years, yet it accurately predicts the events of the Passion and Resurrection, and mirrors the prophecy of Isaiah. The Bible needs to be seen as a complete work, we are shown the way by both Old and New Testaments.
The Choir sang 'Teach me O Lord the Way of thy Statutes' by Thomas Attwood,

On Sunday Afternoon we were treated to a marvelous concert by Alex Palmer and Friends. A mixture of instruments and voice, items from the 17th to the 20th century, well known composers, Haydn  and Mozart, and less well known ones as well. It was a splendid performance  thoroughly enjoyed by the audience, and followed by Tea! All proceeds to the New Annex Project. Many many thanks to Alex and all her musicians for a wonderful performance.

 Our next Concert is on Sunday afternoon the 18th of  October when our good friend Tom Cooper will be giving another of his fantastic piano recitals. do put the date in your diary!
