The service this month was led and prepared by Bea, with the theme of New Year. The service was opened with some readings from the book, Our Servant Queen, focusing on our late Queen’s Christianity. Sue then prayed for the New Year ahead.

Our first hymn was ‘O God Our Help in Ages Past’, and our second, ‘All People that on Earth do Dwell’, once again we were without our helpful vocalists Jean and Albert, but we did our best.

Alan read Psalm 121, and Rev Sharon who led our Communion service today give us a short address on the origins of this Psalm which was used on the pilgrims journeys to Jerusalem.

Sue assisted Rev Sharon in the giving of the Blessed Sacraments.

Our service was concluded with an Eddie Askew reflection from Jean.L and our final hymn, ‘In Heavenly Love Abiding’, Alan closed our service in prayer, and Sharon gave a blessing.

All are welcome to our meetings, the next service will be on Monday 19th February @ 10.30
