This morning we met at 10:00 am for a Sung Eucharist on this the last Sunday of Easter Tide. The celebrant was Father Stephen and Father Roger preached. The first lesson, from the Acts of the Apostles told the story of St Paul and his companions meeting the Lady Lydia and her house hold in Macedonia. Father Roger in his sermon took up the story of these and other women mentioned in the New Testament, and how they were converted and baptised. He spoke of how Liverpool football team had taken up the song 'you'll never walk alone' from Carousel, and how this fitted with the message to new Christians converted by St Paul, it is the Holy Spirit, who's arrival we shall be remembering next Sunday, who accompanies us as it did those new Christians in the first century, who ensures that God is always with us and we are never alone.

The Choir sang 'Lift your Heads' By J.S.Bach as the Anthem, preparing us for Ascension Day on Thursday. There was Coffee after the Service.
