Sunday 18 February 2024

Sunday 18 February, the First Sunday in Lent began with a service of Family Praise hearing about the Lenten Walk. The children were given a copy of the Walk and a Lenten calendar. They will enter some of their activities and bring their copies back to church, for discussion, at Crafty Church next Sunday. The children read all the bible passages and prayers. Several children stood in the Chancel and led the singing of the Lord’s Prayer. The Tower Bell Ringers arrived at 10am and welcomed all to the Holy Communion service at 11am. Once again we were joined by several of our extra singers for the service. The music included the Kyrie from St Anne’s Mass by James MacMillan, and the communion hymn was 'My Spirit longs for thee'. Henry ended the service with a splendid performance of Vivaldi's violin Concerto in A minor Mov.3, in a celebrated arrangemenet for organ by J S Bach.

Sunday 11 February 2024

Sunday 11 February, Quinquagesima Sunday, began with a dignified Holy Communion service led by Revd Patrick Mukholi. The Tower bell ringers joined at 9:15am to begin their welcome to St Mary’s. At 10am there was a Family Matins service telling the story of Jesus’ temptations in the desert. The children told the story, and read the bible passages and prayers. Daniel Ayers our organist ended the service a splendid performance of 'Voluntary' by Samuel Wesley.

Sunday 4 February 2024

Sexagesima Sunday began with the Tower Bells ringing before the Family Communion service led by Patrick Mukholi. The choir anthem was 'Fairest Lord Jesus', and Henry Smith ended the service with a stirring performance of Fantasie in E flat major Mov. 2 by Camille Saint-Saens.

Sunday January 28 2024

Sunday 28 January began with a service of Holy Communion led by Patrick Mukholi. At 09:30am families arrived for Crafty Church, and the theme this week was Candlemas. As usual, the children read the prayers and the bible passages and the activity was making paper candles. There were some wonderful candles made. Then the Tower Bell ringers arrived, the choir rehearsal began, and at 11am John Kimbell led Morning Prayer, and once again Candlemas was the theme. Henry’s voluntary at the end of the service was 'Berceuse' by Edwin Lemare (1865-1934).
