Hildesley Court is a local Sheltered Housing scheme with flats and bedsits for the over 60’s. A group of our congregation visit their once a month on a Monday morning and lead a short (usually Holy Communion) service for and with the residents.
February 20 NEWS FROM HILDESLEY COURT
Our service this month was prepared and led by Bea on the theme of love. It Was a lovely service and Bea had chosen some beautiful hymns, but first Albert brought us the opening prayer.
This was followed by our first hymn Father we place into your Hands, and the two Jeans followed this by sharing a reading from Eddie Askew’s book entitled Disguises of Love, based on a text from Romans 8.
This was followed by the well-known reading from Corinthians 13 by Maggie and we then we then sang Love Divine all Loves Excelling to the Welsh tune.
Anne was away, so Sue led the Communion service and Bea assisted her in the giving of the Blessed Sacraments.
After Alberts Closing Prayer, and Sue had given the Blessing we concluded our service with the beautiful Hymn Great is thy Faithfulness with Pat accompanying us on the keyboard.
We were joined at this month’s meeting by Pat, Elaine and Shirley as well as our regular Hildesley Court Residents.
God Bless You
The Hildesley Court Team.
