On Saturday the 18th of January the choir held a bring and share lunch in the Parish Rooms to celebrate the 90th birthday of Miss Beryl Rodd, one of our Tenors. Some photos are included below.


On Sunday we had Matins as our 10 am service, Father Stephen took the service and preached. The choir sang The Benedictus in B flat by CV Stanford, and as the anthem The Lamb by William Blake, setting by John Tavener. In our prayers we remembered the Royal Family, during this difficult time, and gave thanks for the restoration of the staff and Father Aho to their monastery in Turkey. We also remembered those recently departed to a better place.

There was coffee after the service.
