This Sunday was the Covenant Service. It was a wonderful, special service.
The service was led by our own Rev Hilary Howarth. After the call to worship we sang 'Only by grace can we enter,' which was a wonderful start to the service. Hillary then gave an explanation of the Covenant service.
We had readings from Exodus, Jeremiah. Romans and Mark during the service.
The sermon was very thought provoking and very good.
The songs fitted so well into the Covenant service and made you think deeply about what the covenant you were making actually meant. During the service there was the Commissioning of the Pastoral Friends 'followed by the 'Covenant 'part of the service.
The children came back into the service during the peace and we then had communion as a church. It was lovely and special to use the communion rails.
The service ended with the hymn 'And can it be'. A lovely service.
