PARISH NOTICE SHEET: PLEASE NOTE!


Sunday 29 January, 4th Sunday of Epiphany

Crafty Choral Matins in St Mary's church was led on 29 January by John Kimbell and the theme was Candlemas. Several of our extra singers joined the choir for this very special service. The children who had prepared drip mats for their candles at Crafty Church took them to the altar for a blessing. The Hand Bell Ringers rang “We three kings” and Josh Tuffley ended the service with a rousing performance of Voluntary by Samuel Wesley, Op. 36, no.1. A truly memorable service.


Sunday 22 January, 3rd Sunday of Epiphany

8am Communion began the St Mary's services on Sunday 22 January, led by Rev. Patrick Mukholi. Unfortunately there was no heating in the church and so it was a very cold start to the day. Crafty Church followed at 0930 and the children read the Bible passages and prayers before opening their activity bags to decorate the drip mats for the candles for Crafty Choral Matins on Sunday 29 January when the candles will be blessed for Candlemas. John Kimbell led the Choral Matins service at 1100 and invited all to move to the choir stalls and front of the church. Henry Smith our organist ended the service with a wonderful performance of 'Cantabile' by César Franck, enjoyed in spite of the bitter cold.


Sunday 15 January, 2nd Sunday of Epiphany

Sunday 15 January at St Mary's began with Family Praise at 9:30am, telling the story of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple. The children read the Bible passages and prayers beautifully. Holy Communion should have followed at 11am. Unfortunately, Rev. Patrick Mukholi was not able to attend owing to the illness of his wife. John Kimbell led the service. We remained with the Communion service until the prayer for the whole of 'Christ’s Church militant ... '; the intersessions which followed were from the Morning Prayer service. We are indebted to John. Our thoughts are with Patrick and Helen. Henry Smith ended the service with a wonderful performance of 'Marche Triomphale' by Joseph Callaerts.


Sunday 8 January, 1st Sunday of Epiphany

The Sunday service at St Mary's began with a service of Holy Communion at 8am. This was led by Rev Patrick Mukholi. The small and loyal congregation is growing. After hearing the Tower Bells welcome all to church, Family Matins followed at 10am. The story told by the children was the Flight into Egypt. The children also read the Bible passages and prayers. Henry Smith accompanied, and ended the service with a performance of 'Prelude in E flat major' by Lefebure-Wely.
