A cold and frosty Sunday morning with bright blue skies greeted us today. Our Eucharist was celebrated by Father Stephen. This is also the week of prayers for Christian Unity, and this was reflected in our first reading from St Paul. The Gospel, from St Matthew, continued the story of Jesus calling his Disciples from their fishing on the Sea of Galilee to be fishers of men. In his sermon Father Stephen referred back to the quotation from Isaiah 'the people who were in darkness have seen a great light' That great light which is Our Lord and guides us through our Christian life.

The Choir sang a communion hymn this week, and there was coffee after the service.

Next Saturday is our Mexican Supper, don't forget the Cheese and Wine on the 11th of February, and also please sign up for the Knitathon. This will take place on Sunday afternoon the 5th of March, we shall be knitting woolly hats for the Mission to Seafarers, and hopefully being sponsored by the inch in aid of the new rooms!! There will be tea to urge on the knitting. Donations/sponsorship forms and instructions for the knitting are available at the back of the Church.
