Our hands of selfishness and pride, our hands of cruelty and hate, become our hands of grateful receiving, as Christ goes on giving Himself to us. Maundy Thursday, 18th Apr, 6pm Sung Eucharist followed by Guided Watch with Taize Chants. Do join us.

All our prayers that it may rise from the ashes of destruction to new life in the abiding presence of Christ.

Palm Sunday 14th Apr has 11am Procession & Sung Eucharist. The Choir sings anthems by Palestrina & Byrd. Our loud Hosannas in Luke's Palm Gospel soon give way to Crucify Him in Matthew's Passion Gospel. So begins our walk with Christ through Holy Week. Do join us.

Good to see the CofE promoting our mutual flourishing. I grew up at St Benet Fink (picture) and learnt the Faith here, which has sustained me all my life. Deo Gracias.

Turn thou us, O good Lord, and so shall we be turned... words from the Commination service. For out of dust and ashes comes the turning of our repentance and our renewal. Why not start Lent with Ash Wednesday Sung Eucharist with ashing, Address and Choir at 6pm?

1st Evensong of Septuagesima. Cranmer's translation of the ancient collect orients us towards the disciplines of Lent, for we "are justly punished for our offences" but "mercifully delivered by thy goodness".

Fed up with dreary January already? Christmas continues with an Epiphany Carol Service on Sunday at 11am. Come and sing The first Nowell, Remember O thou man, In the bleak midwinter and Jesus Christ the Apple Tree among all the usual favourites. All welcome.

Worship should connect us with the numinous. The rich vocabulary of the Prayer Book helps us to do that. Wonderful that Millennials are finding that out too.

All welcome at the Sung Eucharist on Christmas Day at 10:30am. Traditional Prayer Book liturgy, readings from Authorised Version of the Bible and preaching on the Prologue to St John's Gospel. As church used to be like.

Good to have our Diocesan Bishop next Sunday 25th Nov skillfully blending the Gospel for the Sunday Next b4 Advent with the feast of Christ the King in his sermon, as we pray: "Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people..."
