Very many thanks to Mary Herbert and the Reis family for their leadership in this morning’s Family Service. The Gospel reading, excellently read by Fabian, was Jesus’ parable which compares the celebration by an owner of a hundred sheep who recovers a single lost one with God’s joy over a single sinner who repents. Mary then arranged a retelling of the story, appointing members of the congregation to provide appropriate sound effects (farmer, sheep etc!), encouraging us all to look for ‘lost sheep’ in our community and encouraging them to return and come to the Benefice Songs of Praise on 13th October.
Thank you to everyone who attended and also for our wonderful refreshments team who arranged coffee, tea, juice, biscuits etc after the service.
