MUSIC and POEM of the Week
The Beatitudes (Pärt) — Choir of King's College, Cambridge
By Evelyn Underhill
I come in the little things,
Saith the Lord;
Not borne on morning wings
Of majesty; but I have set my feet
Amidst the delicate and bladed wheat
That springs triumphant in the furrowed sod—
There do I dwell, in weakness and in power;
Not broken or divided, said our God!
In your straight garden plot I come to flower;
About your porch my vine,
Meek, fruitful, doth entwine,
Waits, at the threshold, Love's appointed hour.

Current guidance for attending church:
The pews are for people who do not feel the need to socially distance.
The area at the back is for those who still need to socially distance - at the new guidance of two meters.
We are still required to wear masks in church unless medically exempt.
Our Wednesday services will remain socially distanced.
The church is now open during daylight hours. It will not open on Sunday before the service to enable the Rector to give everything a quick wipe down!
