New Car

We have just collected our new car and driven it home for the first time.  Here it is.  It is a Citroen C3 Aircross.  The colour is called “Breathing Blue”.


Last night David said goodbye to the Maldon Air Cadets, whom he has served as padre for the last sixteen years.  They wished him all the best for the future and presented him with a certificate and a cake.  He was sent a very appreciative message from the Commanding Officer.  He is pictured with the Wing Padre and a group of the cadets.


David presided at a wedding in the delightful parish church at Semer, a wee village just outside Hadleigh.  Here are some pictures of Victoria & Trevor’s big day.


Here are pictures of the setting, the couple, their attendants and guests.

Revd. David Cornick was the speaker at our final service combining the theme of freedom with an account of his participation in this week’s Windrush Service in Westminster Abbey. More than forty people attended from many churches and none.


The most spectacular afternoon of the Week of Prayer was The Caribbean Celebration for Community Unity. In blazing sunshine young, old and all ages in between met up at the URC, outdoors and indoors to enjoy spectacular Caribbean food, a steel band, competitions, games, a meditative labyrinth and wonderful fellowship.  Grateful thanks to all those who pitched in and made it a great community occasion.


Amazing Caribbean food  …….. imaginative chef and three assistant cooks…bravo!


Spangle Steelpan Band  …..   great entertainment & others joined in the music


Guess the number of sweets & the weight of the Tropical Pineapple Cake


All ages joined in and friends met up and made new ones   …   great fellowship


More fun messages


All ages  …..  great to see Major Mary out & about ….  alleluia!


Inside out of the sun  …   a quiet place to talk and renew & create friendships


Limbo dancing  ….  mostly the very young


Amazing meditative labyrinth   …..  linked to Christian Aid in Haiti


Tropical shirt competition ….  Jimmy, Hilary & Ann the winners.


The Encounter event became part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in St.Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church.  Here are pictures of the meditative activities and the social time which followed.  Click a picture for the slideshow.
