This morning after a a week of lovely weather we woke up to most welcome rain! The 10 am service today was our family service, and we made the focus of our worship Sea Sunday. The hymns had a nautical theme, and the Sunday School accompanied by some Adults presented a meditation on the Sea, reading poems with different aspects of the Sea in our lives, finishing with a small group of singers performing Crossing the Bar. We were joined by Gavin Marshall, who is a serving Naval Officer, who read the Mariners Prayer , Gavin's family are long time Sidlesham parishioners.

Father Roger was the Celebrant for the Eucharist, and the choir sang  'A new commandment' by Peter Nardone as the anthem. The final hymn was 'Eternal Father Strong to Save' rounding off our Sea Sunday service.





There was coffee after the service and by the time we left, the rain had almost stopped.

The Fete is 3 weeks away!!! Dont forget to send in our entries for the mini show!!!!
