This morning our 10 o'clock Eucharist was celebrated by Father Stephen. The readings this morning included St Paul's description of the Church as the sum of its many parts, and the Gospel, from St Luke, the story of Jesus reading from Isaiah in his 'home' synagogue, which it was his habit to attend, and then being filled with the spirit he taught the congregation that he was the fulfilment of these scriptures. In his sermon, Father Stephen explored further the role of the Spirit, showing us how sometimes the spirit works through unlikely people to achieve God's will.The Choir sang 'The Litany to the Holy Spirit' by Peter Hurford as the anthem.  There was coffee after the service.

Next week we have our Italian Evenings, on Thursday the Art of Venice with wine and canapes by Father Stephen, and on Saturday our Italian Supper. Tickets for the supper are all sold, but the Art of Venice is open to all with a retiring collection for the New Rooms project.





Ash Wednesday is fast approaching (February 10th) and this year our Lent Study Group will be looking at the Psalms, please sign up for the Lent Group at the back of the Church. These meetings will take place in the Vicarage at 7:30 on Thursdays in Lent.
