Hi to all Readers,

Next to Wolverley Church there is a wood which is open to the public and you can walk around and enjoy the woodland. It has a steep path going down to a stream but, of course, then what seems like an even steeper path back up. Today I saw the first few bluebells out. If you're a wild flower fan, you'll also know the beauty of the wood anemones and the more delicate wood sorrel. and there's lots of both. If you visit the church, do have a walk around the woods - it takes about 20 minutes - there's a bench next to the stream - with a good internet signal too!

Our Easter Sunday Service at 11am was full and joyful. The flame I managed to keep alight lit, from the fire on Birchen Coppice just as the sun was rising (the Sonrise service this year started at a very late 6.15am), was used to light our paschal candle and we declared 'Alleluia, Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed. Alleluia'. I taught our school children these sentences and realised the 'indeed' is quite arcane but I said it means 'definitely' or 'Jesus is well risen!'

Do you enjoy proper Sung Evensong from the Book of Common Prayer? If so, do come on Sunday May 10th at 6.30pm.

Do you enjoy a more informal all-age service? If so, do come on May 10th at 11am. There's a story on the carpet using Playmobil and craft.

St John's is a lovely place to worship. Try it!
