Sunday 3 March Albert’s First Visit

Sarah and John were married at St Giles’ and, over the years, we have watched their family grow. Noah now has a brother Albert Edward - known as Alby - who was born on 25 January. On Sunday 3 March Katharine welcomed and blessed him during the Parish Eucharist. The congregation then were able to greet him as we all exchanged the Peace. We look forward to welcoming Albert, his family and friends for his Baptism later in the summer. 

Sunday 24 February - Admission of the Baptised to Communion

Fred, Martha, William and Imogen made their first Communion during the 10.00am Parish Eucharist. Over the past weeks, we have met for a time of preparation telling the story of the Passover and the Last Supper and thinking about bread and wine, remembering together on Sunday mornings and saying our prayers. At the end of the service the children each received a holding cross with the words: ‘God has touched us with his love and nourished us at his table. As God’s pilgrim people, may we continue to explore the Way of Christ, and grow in friendship with God, in love for his people, and in serving others.’ Families had been busy baking and the children invited us to share cakes over coffee and squash afterwards.
