This morning our 10 am Eucharist was celebrated by Father Stephen. The Church was still looking splendid with the Harvest Festival flowers and displays. The Gospel story was another of the Vineyard parables, where the owner sends workers and eventually his son and all are rejected or killed, Jesus asks how the owner will treat the vineyard workers when he comes. In his sermon Father Stephen pointed out that rather than what would seem justifiable wrath from God for killing his Son, faith leads us to grace which at the end will see us enter God's Kingdom.
The Choir sang 'Fairest Lord Jesus' a traditional text as the Anthem. There was coffee after the service in the new rooms.

Next Sunday we will welcome Tom Cooper to play a piano recital of Russian Music, 3pm in Church followed by Tea in the new rooms, a retiring collection for St Wilfrid's Hospice and St Mary's will be taken up. Tom has dedicated this concert to the memory of Alfred Lytton.

On Saturday October 28th do join us for the Eucharist for the repose of the souls of the dead, Faure's setting of the Requiem sung liturgically.
