This morning at our 10 am Eucharist we celebrated the Feast of St Peter of St Paul. Father Roger was the Celebrant today as Father Stephen is taking a break. The first reading was the story of St Peter's miraculous escape from prison, and in his sermon Father Roger told us that there are some churches in England dedicated to St Peter ad Vincula  literally St Peter in Chains, indeed Father Roger and Christina were married in a church with such a dedication, he contrasted the simple fisherman, St Peter with the educated St Paul, perhaps an 'Odd Couple' but bringing together the man who knew Our Lord personally, and the man who took the message out to the gentiles. A powerful combination.

As it was a 5th Sunday the choir sang the Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus Dei  in the setting by Herbert Sumsion, and the anthem was 'Give us the wings of faith' by Bulloch. After the service there was coffee in the Parish Rooms.

The Fete draws ever nearer, Jamjars with lids needed for the Tombolla, and any contributions to stalls. Do enter your flowers, produce, and craft work in the Mini Show, entry form in the Parish Magazine!
