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.

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.
