This is the second in a series of sermons about the service of Holy Communion,
what is in the service, why it’s there, what the pattern, the shape of the service is.
We have now moved into ordinary time – green time – the Sundays after Pentecost/Trinity when we read through one of the gospels (this year it’s Luke) and try to grow in our Christian faith.
I’m proposing to spend time looking at the service of Holy Communion / Eucharist / Mass (yes, that’s not a common Anglican term but it is worth thinking what its root is).
What is in the service, why it’s there, what the pattern, the shape of the service is.

We did some artwork, learned some songs, decorated biscuits and wrote some prayers.
Then Dog helped Rev Janet tell us the story of Easter as we made an Easter Garden.
Thank you to all who helped.

A big thank you to those who made the posies and put the service together.
We had a quiz about mothers in the animal world, heard some stories about two mothers in the Bible and then thought about the way that Mary would have looked after Jesus as he was growing up.
We said prayers for our families and homes and for Mother Church, Mother Earth, and our motherland.
And, of course, we gave all the ladies a posy and took some away to give to others who weren’t with us in church.
Thanks to the team who cooked and served nearly 50 breakfasts in the hall on Saturday 9th February. We were overwhelmed by the number of folk, aged from 0 to 80+, who arrived. Some had the full cooked breakfast, others settled for coffee (or tea) and cake, while some managed both.
Our next breakfast is scheduled for Saturday 2nd March 10am – 12noon in Llanishen Village Hall.
