Seven churches were present last Sunday for an excellent Advent ecumenical service of prayer and song. And a collection of £660 for Mary’s meals and the Salvation Army’s care of the homeless in Ilford. Today we welcome back the 10 am Music Group who have been practicing for some weeks. Likewise the 11.30 choir is flourishing with organ support. Do think. Are you a concert-goer or do you come to mass to play an essential part? You know that just being there is boring, but taking part gives energy. For all the Christmas masses you will have carol sheets. Please sing, even though through the mandatory mask.
