Last day of July already. The day started early with a van parked outside before breakfast. They had come to replace an old sliding patio door that would not slide properly any more and could not be securely and reliably locked.
Whilst they were working I went to take the 9.15am Holy Communion where the gospel reading and the talk were on the strange ending to Matthew 13 on Parables.
Afterwards there was a meeting with Derek and Siv at the Rectory until midday, when we discussed issues relating to all the churches and the planning of services during August and into the autumn.
Godly Play this afternoon in the Methodist Chapel, where Davida taught the children about the Great Family using a sandbox and characters such as Abram, Sarai and Isaac.
