There is so much to report. The crib service was wonderful fun, the children and adults hearing a retelling of the nativity story and experiencing Jesus as “The Light of the World. “ The First Communion of Christmas was special this year with “The First Noel” being played on the carillon at the end of the service. The angel doors were opened and this heavenly music drifted into the church. It was a magical moment when the Holy Spirit felt close to us. Bethlehem was the theme of the 8.00am and 10.00am services on Christmas morning and the children brought their presents to show us. On New Year’s Day this year, we were invited to join our friends at St John the Evangelist for their Patronal Service. We enjoyed a great fellowship and we had a worshipful morning praising God together. St John’s will be joining with us in the summer when we celebrate our Patronal Festival.
Revd Jane Eastell would like to thank everyone at St Mary Magdalene who came and supported the Patronal Festival Benefice service on Sunday 1st January 2017. This was a wonderful start to the new year and we now look forward to sharing with you in July!
