LUMINIFEROUS – indeed! Our luminous tower (9-12pm) has attracted the attention of the populace – may it continue to shine!
HIT AND MISS – the jury is still out on the arrival of Spring, and parishioners are probably still reaching for the central heating button. The farmers and gardeners are smiling, and no doubt the water companies. We will have to pray for a dry day on Friday. The long-range forecast suggest that overcoats will be needed, and, there may be just a shower. Our new hymn books have arrived and should be in use next Sunday. It’s really lovely to have the long light evenings and when the sun does finally arrive, we will be radiant with joy.
