MUSIC and POEM of the Week
Panis Angelicus (Kings College, Cambridge)
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!
