We came together for our 10:00 am Eucharist service on another hot and sunny morning. Both the north and south doors were left  open to allow a cooling breeze through the church! The readings this morning from St Paul and St Mark's Gospel, told of the pressure Jesus was under once news of his miracles and teachings spread. He could not get away from crowds of people bringing the sick for healing and to hear his message.He felt this pressure in a very human way, the gospel writer emphasising that he was truly fully human. St Paul reflected on the need to share, resources and spirituality to cope with life, through the grace of Our Lord.

The choir sang  Brother James Air a setting of the 23rd psalm as the anthem. There was tea and coffee after the service
