Wedding season begins...

Spring is only getting a small look-in around here. Fortunately the sun came out for our first wedding of the season. So congratulations to Helen and Stuart. The camper van is not for their honeymoon as far as I'm aware. And the driver's concern for its handbrake is the reason it's parked in the church drive rather than on our rather steep Church Bank.

The Bride arrived in this splendid carriage just as a Children's Party was breaking up in the Hall across the road. So for a few moments wedding and bridesmaid dresses mingled with mermaids and pirates. Sadly I didn't get a photo of this.

Still here - still Easter!

Sorry that it's so long since this blog was up-dated. It's not for lack of things happening, but the reverse...

So some update links: Rosie Junemann, our Reader, preached on Good Shepherd Sunday, 25th April. The following Sunday (yesterday) I preached on new dimensions of faith with reference to the recent spate of 3D films and the National Gallery's Sacred Made Real Exhibition (H/T Bishop Martin Warner in the Church Times).

And the May edition of our Parish Magazine is now online - full of news... and please keep our candidates for Confirmation especially in your prayers.

As ever, a little patience is need in accessing these links. If they don't display once loaded, scroll down a little using the sidebar button. The Magazine does open up, but for some reason always on page 10!

Less tricky - but a bigger download - Rosie has written an article on Music Sunday  for Newslink, our diocesan newspaper. Find the whole issue here, and go to page 4.

Meanwhile, flowers and blossom in and near the churchyard are quite beautiful. The pictures in this posting are taken before the daffodils had come fully into bloom.
