Easter Sunday 2016

Easter Sunrise Worship at Camus Cemetery

The first Eucharist of Easter was celebrated at Camus Cemetery with a congregation of 43.  The Service began with the Kindling of the Paschal Fire, an ancient liturgical ceremony and included the baptism of Rachel Morrell, one of our confirmation candidates.

Once again the open-air service enjoyed dry, if chilly, conditions.
Afterwards parishioners and visitors enjoyed tea and bacon butties in Mrs Joey King's farmyard adjacent to the cemetery.

At Family Worship later, Rachel helped light the Paschal Candle and also received her baptism candle lit from the Paschal flame.

During the service 2 communion chalices presented by Lilian Davis were dedicated by the Rector in recognition of the substantial bequest from our late parishioner Mrs Anna Clail.

Linda and Collette present Mike with cakes and the parishioners wish him a happy birthday after the morning service
