In the Incarnation, God became flesh, and thus
transformed, turned upside-down, the values of
the world. ‘He that is greatest among you shall
be your servant’ (Matthew 23.11). ‘I am among

washed the feet of his disciples (John 13.3-11).

the Great described himself as ‘servus servorum

In addition to the usual we had some concerts,
one of which was a Passiontide portrayal,
presented by David Horne, entitled ‘Forty Days

provide musical interludes for the monologues
depicting some of the passion scenes and the
main characters in the story. His portrayal of

The first outreach Chat-Stop was held on Saturday
8 April. We had coffee, tea and cakes. It was very
well attended and a group came along who meet
regularly on Saturdays and will join us again in the
future. Thanks to all who did the publicity, catered,
set up and cleared away. It was good to see the
young folk there, and Toby came too – Roger’s
pet-as-therapy dog. It is clearly fulfilling a need
and we hope that the numbers will grow – the next
one is on Saturday 13 May at 10.30am. Please
come and join in and invite those you know who
