#271: Did Bertie mistake the Sun for a big round Edam and make it disappear?

Sunny Basingstoke full of wildflowers on Wednesday for Cara’s first walk out in 11 days.


This Sunday we have at St Paul’s the 8am BCP with Jane Kraft presiding and preaching, 9.30am with Cara Smart presiding, (no more isolating!) and Jane Kraft preaching, followed by coffee in the Parish Rooms, and 11am at St Nick’s again with Cara and Jane.  Woosehill Church have two services this Sunday; the morning service of Holy Communion and Thanksgiving at 10am led by Richard Lamey and followed by coffee.  Then there is a special evening service of quiet reflection and prayer, 6.15pm until around 7pm, a chance to light candles, listen to the gentle music and reflect on the last 18 months in the company of God and one another.
