Tomorrow evenings Evensong (Feb 9) cancelled

Owing to the apocalyptic weather forecast for the afternoon and evening of this Sunday, Feb 9, I have decided to CANCEL the 6.30pm Evensong service.

The 10 am morning service will take place, but please don't take any risks to come, even if you are on the rota to do somethingWe will manage!

I don't want anyone to take the risk of travelling to the evening service, however, and I know that some people will be determined to do so if the service is on! (This simple, said service using the lovely old words of the Book of Common Prayer is a beautiful end to the day - if you've never tried it, come along and join us on any other 2nd, 4th or 5th Sunday evening!)

Here's one of the prayers from the evening service to use as the wind howls around us, remembering especially those who may have no option but to be outside in the storm; those who are homeless, the emergency services and those whose travel is essential.

Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord; and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of thy only Son, our saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

Stay safe!
Canon Anne Le Bas (vicar)
