For the second time in 2 weeks we came to Church through snow!! A cold east wind blew through the Churchyard as we came together at 10 am for Mattins. The Church was warm and welcoming despite its Lenten sparsity of decoration. We sang Psalm 51, and the Benedicite, setting by Lloyd, and the Jubilate in B flat by Stanford as the Canticles. Father Stephen's sermon took up the theme from the Gospel reading of the need for death to bring about resurrection, following on from the Gospel reading from St John. The corn seed comes to new life and produces a sheath of corn, The death of Jesus lead to the world wide church, with out it none of us would be at church, a great harvest from the one truly selfless act of Our Lord.

The Anthem was 'O Saviour of the World' in the setting by Arthur Somerville.

There was coffee after the service in the Parish Rooms.

NEXT SATURDAY A performance of J.H.Maunders Cantata OLIVET  TO CALVARY at 6 pm in Church.

Do come and listen!
 if you would like to sing, come at 3:30 for the rehearsal
