Thy Kingdom Come – A Prayer For A New Future

There’s not much room in the vicarage loft. It’s full of old photographs that we don’t want to lose. There must be thirty albums worth up there and other little boxes filled with all sorts of pictures and cuttings. A task of this lockdown time was that we would go through the lot of them…

The Way. The Truth And The Life? And Then What?

You’ll remember him of course from when he used to help out in the coffee shop. Taking the orders and waiting at tables. Not so good in the kitchen itself I seem to recall. But really good with the customers. Then he joined the rota for the Foodbank. Meeting clients in the prayer corner complete…

Transfiguration

From where I am standing, I can just see the window in the Lady Chapel, some of you will see it better than that and some of you can’t see it at all. I know we are so very lucky to have so many beautiful windows, but I have to say that window is my…

Not yet in Bethlehem

Last Sunday I enlisted the help of some Messy Church children to take down the Christmas Stable. It left a trail of straw across the church (sorry Jill), I trod on a light bulb and broke it (sorry Andy) and I couldn’t quite manage to pull apart all the pieces so that they could fit…
