Dear God our Shield and our Defender,

During the current health crisis we will not be meeting together as usual. Instead we are finding new ways of being church.
From the Rector
Hello everyone, The heat is gone, and the temperatures are now considered normal for the time of year. The wind adds the chill factor and people are reaching for their raincoats and jackets once again. In the garden the grasses are in full seed and my lawn is full of wildflowers (or weeds if you like a neat and kept garden). Yes, my gardener moved away at the start of the year and so I left the lawn to look after itself, as God created it, well, maybe. But God or nature has delighted me with the range of plants now aloud to flower. The grass is full of white and red clover, ox-eye daisy, wood avens, plantain and common cat’s ear to name a few. There are several different types of grass none of which makes for a good lawn, but all look splendid waving in the wind. And not too many Dragons foot with yellow flower (better known as dandelion). Then, God or nature, blessed this week with wild orchids. Dotted around, front, and back, are Pyramidal orchids. Full of colour and standing proud in amongst the grasses. But my eye was court by another smaller and more delicate flower, the Bee orchid of which I found three. And then one more. As yet, I haven’t identified this last orchid. Can anyone help?
