BBQ lunch at the rect­ory – Sunday 13th Octo­ber . Our young people are par­tic­u­larly wel­come this day as Fr Jeff would like to talk with them.  Please bring own meat and drink, a salad or sweet to share if you are able.  The par­ish will provide bread rolls and con­di­ments.  Eddie Reddy will be our chef.

Note: Even­ing Pray­er – 6pm on 13th Octo­ber. For this month only we are hold­ing this low-key pray­er ser­vice on the second Sunday of the month.  Peter Sey­mour will lead the wor­ship and a very inform­at­ive (but short) talk and then those present are invited to head off to a loc­al café for some din­ner. 

Pas­tor­al Care — The pas­tor­al care group would like all to have a good look at those names that appear on the lists for pray­er in the weekly bul­let­in.  The long-term pray­er list and the imme­di­ate sick list.  Next week we will start these lists again.  Some of the people on these lists may no longer be in need of our pray­ers for whatever reas­on.  If you have placed names on these lists in the past and the per­son is still in need of pray­er, then simply place their name on the new list.  Of course, the lists of per­sons’ names are for private pray­ers as well as when we are togeth­er for wor­ship so please remem­ber to pray for these dear ones.

St Luke’s Patron­al Fest­iv­al - Sunday 20 Octo­ber. It would be great to have a full com­ple­ment on that day.  A Patron­al fest­iv­al cel­eb­rates the life of a com­munity and notes and gives thanks for the qual­it­ies of the Pat­ron Saint.  It’s a time to come togeth­er and give thanks for each oth­er and also to think about our future togeth­er.  So, we need YOU to be here to make our cel­eb­ra­tion com­plete. Shared lunch­eon to fol­low the ser­vice.

A note from your organ­ist — Dur­ing Septem­ber, we have been cel­eb­rat­ing the Sea­son of Cre­ation. Chris and I try to select music appro­pri­ate for the ser­vice each week. Organ­ists are not always ser­i­ous — I have been hav­ing a bit of fun and select­ing music at the begin­ning and the end of the ser­vices which matches the part of cre­ation for the day. Regard­ing the postlude for Storm Sunday – under­stand­ably there was con­cern that some of the keys and ped­als on the organ were ‘stick­ing’. How­ever, as dir­ec­ted in the music, I was actu­ally play­ing sev­er­al keys and ped­als next to each oth­er and draw­ing out and push­ing back in the stop knobs slowly to give the effect of thun­der. The organ was behav­ing per­fectly!

Storm Sunday: Chaconne in F minor (Pachel­bel), Shepherd’s Song (Guil­mant), The Thun­der Storm (T P Ryder).

Cre­at­ive Sunday: Fughetta superWir glauben all’ an ein­en Gott, Schöpfer – We believe in one God, Cre­at­or (Bach), Chor­al pre­lude Wir glauben all’ an ein­en Gott, Schöpfer (Walth­er), Med­ley of today’s hymn tunes – Wood­lands, Dix, Hyfry­dol, Love Divine.
