Sadly we had to cancel our Lady Day Service due to illness and holidays. Thinking of illness, we are delighted that Marjorie Wright has now come home from hospital and we hope she will make a speedy and full recovery.

We were delighted to welcome Rev Frank Minchinson as our speaker this month. He gave us a fascinating talk on imagery and icons. Not only did he talk about imagery down the ages saying that icons were thought of as ‘windows into heaven’ but he explained how icons were produced and showed us some he had painted himself. We are most grateful to David and Joan Evans for bringing Frank and his wife Jill over from Exmouth.

Next month we go on our outing to Buckfast Abbey on May 20th.
