All Nature has a Feeling

All nature has a feeling, woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal – and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books.
There’s nothing mortal in them – their decay
Is the green life of change, to pass away
And come again in blooms revivivied.
It’s birth was heaven, eternal is it’s stay,
And with the sun and moon shall still abide
Beneath their night and day and heaven wide.
John Clare (1793-1864)

Another month has passed and we have entered the merry month of May. The closing days of April have seen the Priory Ramblers continue to tramp the local countryside despite the towering clouds and heavy rainstorms that constantly threaten and burst upon us in this very wet and windy Spring season.

Mothers Union will hold a Coffee Morning on Thursday 3rd May.

Bible Reading Fellowship group continue their studies on that evening at 3, Penrith Avenue.

Strawberries, Wine and Ice Cream are offered on Sunday 13 May at 61, Great Northern  Road with all donations to Christian Aid funds. (Should the rain abate it is even suggested refreshments may be taken in the garden!!)

A Priory Spring Fair is to be held on Saturday 19th May from 11 am to 2 pm with a Raffle, Plant and Cake stalls and Refreshments. Proceeds to Church funds.

A new Emmaus Course will begin on 31st May holding an initial six sessions on Thursday evenings at the Rectory in Furness Avenue. Entitled “What Christians Believe” it is an opportunity for regular worshippers to meet together and discuss their faith, or for those who are considering Baptism or Confirmation to enquire and learn about the Church’s faith and it’s meaning for life.
