The officiant on this occasion was Lay Reader Joan Herrington ably assisted by Worship Leader Janet Webb. After a very warm welcome and the giving out of official notices, a reading from the Gospel took place. Matthew 4 1< >11 was narrated by Janet Webb. Intercessions: again by the Worship Leader with musical accompaniment again provided by a trusty CD player as local organist Geof Webb was unable to attend due to illness, but hopefully now appears to be on the mend. Various readings took place between well chosen selections of hymns. These were read by members of the congregation namely, Rosie Woodgate, Fiona Pagdin, Monica Hockenhull, Lynne Tweed. Concluding prayers and a blessing brought the service to a close. Again the congregation were invited to remain for refreshments.

Latest scam doing the rounds highlighted by the association, please read and observe! Scammers Caught on CCTV. We have reported on a number of Alerts that there are a sophisticated number of scams doing the rounds. Clearly for criminals this is a low risk way of extorting money from vulnerable individuals. Unusually you are hearing from us today to advise you that there is what appears to be an interesting programme on BBC 1 TV on Monday 2nd March, 20:30 Panorama: “Spying on the Scammers”. This is a story of a guy who turned the tables on the fraudsters. “Jim Browning” hacked into the fraudsters call centre in India and obtained footage of the scammers at work. Although Jims actions were quite illegal the access he gained and activities of the crooks he exposes should serve to act as a stark warning to us all. Essential viewing for our members we think.
