we hope to put the infrastructure in place to do this in next few months. Like the idea of accompanying the plate so as link with the collection generally rather than afterwards.

Looking fwd to the Patronal tomorrow. Fr Andrew Greany (Chantry ) preaches at the 11am Procession & Sung Eucharist. The Choir sing the lovely Tchaikovsky "Hymn to the Trinity", in whose name St Botolph preached widely. Travellers esp welcome.

Looking fwd to preaching on this Trinity Sunday. Today we let God be God, instead of thinking about God in relation to us. The Athanasian Creed tells us that "he therefore that would be saved let him thus think of the Trinity". We think upwards not downwards today.

A good and humorous sermon is assured from this bright young priest. We have seen his star rising ...

The sound of the Prayer Book liturgy, its rhythms and flows, draws us in to the worship of heaven and allows for our indwelling.

Hail the day that sees him rise; Alleluya! So begins our 6pm Sung Eucharist on Ascension Day 30 May . Christ takes our humanity with Him as he ascends and makes Himself available to all across time and space by the coming Holy Spirit. Thy Kingdom Come is our prayer.

What a taster from Bp Rowan Williams! Valuable insights, profound words, theological rigour and depth. Come to Old Wine on Using the Prayer Book Mon 10th June 5:30pm - 9:30pm, with Supper provided FOC.

Richly blessed to have had Bp Rowan Williams yesterday as our Celebrant & Preacher on Good Shepherd Sunday (Easter 2). Transcript of sermon on "Knowing God and being known" to follow. Wise words that took away all our vain illusions about ourselves.

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.

Bp Rowan Williams to officiate Evensong and preach, then free Supper with wine and distinguished panel discussing how to use the Prayer Book properly - what's not to like? 50 now signed up and nearly fully booked. Book here for 10th June Old Wine:

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.

What Lent is about - super, well edited film with a clear, concise narrative. A good teaching video. Well done, Fr James.

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".
