This morning our 10 am service was a Parish Eucharist. We arrived at church on a dry and overcast day, but the churchyard was full of winter flowers to brighten us up. The readings were from St Paul's letter to the Corinthians and St Mathews Gospel. In his sermon Father Stephen bought together the two themes from the readings. St Paul, admonishing the Corinthians for splitting into factions and urging them to unite in the belief in the one true cross, and the story from the Gospel of Our Lord calling the disciples to be fishers of men. We can also focus our attention on Christian Unity and the mission of living the christian life out every day.

The Choir sang the Irish Blessing in the setting by Bob Chilcot as the anthem.

In the notices Father Stephen reminded us of 3 important items to pay for! The magazine (£7) the Hungarian Supper on February the 15th (£15) and the 100 club (£11) The church wardens are happy to help you!

There was coffee after the service in the Rooms.

Next week we celebrate Candlemass with our family service, and on the 9th of February there will be a sale of Jewellery after the service!
