This morning our 10 am service was Sung Matins. It was also Toilet Twinning Day!!
The gospel reading this morning was the parable of the talents, read from the King James Version. In his sermon Father Stephen told us that the talents were in fact money, and 1 talent was worth 3 years salary! He also referred to the old testament reading from Zephania, a prophet from the period of 600 BC when the kingdoms of Israel and Judah were united and the Temple was restored. A copy of Deuteronomy was found  in the building works, which caused a great shake up in the religious practice of the times. Much like our own Reformation, we occasionally need a bit of a shake up in our religion to keep us on the right path to God.

The Choir sang the Jubilate Deo in the setting by C.V. Stanford and as the Anthem 'God be in my Head' setting by John Rutter. There was coffee after the service in the Parish rooms.

Next Sunday is Stir up Sunday, come and help us make Christmas Puddings 3pm in the New Rooms
