At this season of Remembrance we give particular thanks for the self sacrifice of those whose lives were lost in defence of our everyday freedoms, we will honour them best when those freedoms of democracy and the dignity of life honoured are cherished.


Let us remember before God and commend to his sure keeping: those who have died for their country in war; those whom we knew and whose memory we treasure; those who have lived and died in the service of mankind.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.

We will remember them.

23 Jun 2017 - Father James leads the Parish Pilgrimage to Walsingham

The Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham was established in 1061 when, according to the text of the Pynson Ballad (c 1485), Richeldis de Faverches prayed that she might undertake some special work in honour of Our Lady. In answer to her prayer, the Virgin Mary led her in spirit to Nazareth, showed her the house where the Annunciation occurred, and asked her to build a replica in Walsingham to serve as a perpetual memorial of the Annunciation.

25 Dec 2016 - Christmas begins with Christ

Word for Today: A calm stillness descends upon the earth as God prepares to enter into our history as a little baby. The long wait is over. The only one who can make sense of lives, can teach us how to live, deigns to take our human nature and be born among us. He is Jesus, The Christ, The Lord.

Gospel from the Easter Garden

John 20:1-9

It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb.
She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved.
"They have taken the Lord out of the tomb," she said "and we don't know where they have put him." So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb.
They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in.
Simon Peter who was following now came up, went right into the tomb, saw the linen cloths on the ground, and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself.
Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed.
Till this moment they had failed to understand the teaching of scripture, that he must rise from the dead.
