                                             POEM

                   The Pulley by George Herbert

 

When God at first made man,
Having a glasse of blessings standing by;
Let us (said he) poure on him all we can:
Let the world's riches, which dispersed lie,
Contract into a span.

So strength first made a way;
Then beautie flow'd, then wisdome, honour, pleasure;
When almost all was out, God made a stay,
Perceiving that alone, of all his treasure,
Rest in the bottome lay.

For if I should (said he)
Bestow this jewell also on my creature,
He would adore my gifts in stead of me,
And rest in Nature, not the God of Nature:
So both should losers be.

Yet let him keep the rest,
May tosse him to my breast.

 

But keep them with repining restlesnesse;
Let him be rich and wearie, that at least,
If goodnesse leade him not, yet wearinesse

.

Current guidance for attending church:

  • We are now exempt from wearing masks in Church

  • However if you wish to wear a mask for some, or all of the service, you are welcome to do so. 

  • The area at the back is for those who feel safe, and more comfortable, if they can maintain social distance.

  • The pews are for people who do not feel the need to socially distance. 

  • 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!
