Third Sunday of Easter
Alleluia Christ is Risen
Celebrant Rev'd Denis Samways
Prayer Requests Our Rector is now at home recovering from a successful heart bypass operation. We pray for him and Hazel and their family.
Also we remember Bunty Love, Beth Wood, Sholto Steel, Pene Richmond, Rowan Huggitt and Valery Glover and our many elderly and vulnerable church members still shielding. We pray for them and for family members especially those far away.
