This week in our Churches
Last Sunday the Morning Service of Holy Communion was led by retired priest the Rev Gillian Orpin. In her sermon, the Rev Gillian spoke of many events mentioned in the Old Testament and how modern archaeology has found evidence supporting many of these stories. At the service, we had hoped we would hear if a new Rector had been appointed, but that news has not yet been given, hopefully we will hear soon. Next Sunday, September 20th, the morning service at 10.30am, will be Lay Reader led “Service of the Word”.
Last Friday morning, our church organist, Nick Wilson gave his “Thought for the Day” on BigglesFM 104.8 on the dial, with all the latest news from St Mary’s. Nick will next be on air with his Thoughts and other news on September 25th at 8.15am as usual.
