Midweek Reflection 7 July 2021

My eyes are open before the nightwatches, that I may meditate on your word.

Psalm 119:130-133

130 The opening of your word gives light,
it gives understanding to the simple

131 I open my mouth and draw in my breath
as I long for your commandments

132 Turn to me and be gracious to me
as is your way with those who love your name

Planned guided tours cancelled

We’re very sorry that plans for guided tours of the new church interior and the new Annexe, which had been announced in July Tidings for 11, 18 and 25 July, have had to be abandoned.

The reason is that the Annexe’s rather specialised glass is coming from Germany and its arrival has been delayed by 2-3 weeks.

Completion is now expected at the end of July.
