This morning our 10:00 am service was Mattins. The readings, from the King James version of the Bible included the Creation Story from Genesis, and from St Matthew's Gospel Jesus' words to his disciples urging them not to worry about material things! In his sermon Father Stephen continued this theme, telling us that people of our times worry as much, if not more, than those of first century Palestine! We must put our faith in Our Lord and follow his path, and such things will be taken care of.

The Choir sang ' Fairest Lord Jesus' a setting based on a Silesian folk tune arranged by Martin How, as the anthem.
There was coffee after the Service.

Father Stephen reminded us that this year's Lent Course will be held on Thursday evenings in Lent at the Vicarage. We will be studying St Mark's Gospel, do sign the list in the church and come along!

Don't forget the Knit-a-thon on March 5th and the Musical Afternoon on the 12th of March.
