On Sunday we celebrated a number of birthdays but a particularly special one was that of Sally Fuller seen in the photo with her cake for the occasion. The young folk were out in force too, pictured here being attentive to Fr Tony’s chat with them. During the service they produced some handmade greetings for Sally.
The recent Patronal Festival was a joyful occasion with special guest Bishop Tim Harris leading the service. Afterwards we shared a delicious barbecue lunch.
The early birds managed to experience the sun rise over the first service of the day in our lovely garden.
The children became involved in the later Easter Day Service. First the story, then preparations for the musical procession . . . and finally the search for the eggs outside. No egg was safe.
We are pleased to welcome the Rev’d Tony Tamblyn to our parish at the beginning of his six month appointment as our locum Priest.
It was with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to our much loved Vicar, The Rev’d Sonya Paterson, and her husband Rob this morning. We expressed our thanks and our very best wishes for their future.
Here are some snaps from the Children’s Christmas Service:

On the last day of 2017, we had a lovely opportunity to pay tribute to our skilled and much valued sacristan, Isobel Varcoe, as we celebrated a significant birthday .
The parish children celebrate the message!
