It was great to be able to welcome Christine back this morning from her short break;  and thank you, Christine, for your guidance and interpretation of the Transfiguration.  Thank you also to Rev Raymond Obin took our communion service last Sunday and Mike Sarson who once again led Evensong.
Lent starts on Wednesday with a communion service at St Martin's 8pm and Benefice communion at Highclere on Sunday.
It was a shock to us all that Lucy Barber died suddenly at the end of December.  She was a generous and faithful member of our community and will be greatly missed.  The large attendance at her funeral on 11 January was testament to just how much she was loved and respected.
