 Today we reach Trinity Sunday, and on a beautiful June morning we met at 10am to celebrate the mystery that is God, three in one. Father Luke was the celebrant and he preached on the difficulty we have in understanding this idea of One God but three different aspects, Father Son and Holy Ghost. He referred to our first reading from St Paul that through Faith we have peace with God in our lives and this is the important part of the message of the Trinity.

The Choir sang 'I will sing with the Spirit' words from Corinthians, set by John Rutter as the Anthem.

At the end of the Service Father Luke conducted some of his Archdeaconley duties by investing Chris Field as one of our Church Wardens for the current year!

There was coffee after the service.

Romans 5:1-5

A reading from the letter of Paul to the Romans.

Since we are justified by faith, 
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 

through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; 
and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.

And not only that, 
but we also boast in our sufferings, 
knowing that suffering produces endurance, 

and endurance produces character, 
and character produces hope, 

and hope does not disappoint us, 
because God’s love has been poured into our hearts 
through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

John 16:12-15

Hear the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John.

Jesus said to his disciples:

‘I still have many things to say to you, 
but you cannot bear them now. 

When the Spirit of truth comes, 
he will guide you into all the truth; 
for he will not speak on his own, 
but will speak whatever he hears, 
and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 

He will glorify me, 
because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 

All that the Father has is mine. 
For this reason I said 
that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.'
