Each year we go up the Tower on Ascension Day at 7.30am and sing a couple of hymns and hear how Jesus ascended into Heaven, according to Luke, forty days after Easter. Afterwards we have a splendid full English Breakfast, which was served promptly this year, thanks to some hard working church members. In the evening at 7.00pm we have a full Sung Eucharist which is a wonderful celebration. Do join us for the special services which are now at the earlier time of 7pm.
Corpus Christi or to give it it's full title of Day of Thanksgiving for the Institution of the Holy Communion, is on Thursday 15th June, the first Thursday after Easter, Pentecost and Trinity. As the title implies it gives thanks for the Holy Communion or Last Supper which we kept on Maundy Thursday but don't really have time then to appreciate or understand. This is our next Festival at 7pm, and afterwards everyone is invited to the Vicarage for refreshments (Cheese & Wine).
