SHALOM, SHALOM, SHALOM – this was the song of our packed Parade Service this morning. We were delighted to welcome Dr Lawi and Mama Molle Issa from our link Diocese of Newala in Tanzania and we sang ourselves hoarse – in my case with the 3rd big service of the day still to come!

Once again our “Bramhall Circle” celebrated being members of the world’s one great family of humankind. Young family members Ben and Isabella proclaimed the Gospel with confidence and clarity and we prayed for one of our own who’s away in Durham for the weekend in the vocation discernment process. Peace, peace, peace. Our work and our prayer.
