WORSHIP AND PRAYER

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!

MUSIC and POEM of the Week

 

Poem of the week

                                     The Sandalwood Tree

                                           by Hafiz (c. 1320-1389)

                 

The sandalwood tree shares its lovely

 scent with any who come near.

God is like that.

Does the tree ever think to itself,

I am not going to offer my fragrance to that man because of what he did last night, or to that woman who neglected her child, or because of what we might have ever done?

It is not the way of God to hoard.

He is simply there, emanating freely,

if we wish to grab a handful or fill the basket of the eye.
