Easter 4: A small, quiet, meditative service…

Holy Communion at 8 o’clock on Easter morning

It must be now at least for fifteen years that I have been privileged to celebrate the 8 o’clock service of Holy Communion at All Saints’ on Easter Day.

The number of communicants is always small but consistent at around fifteen.  This service seems to provide an opportunity for a group of people seeking a quieter service who feel happier with a more meditative opportunity to greet their Risen Lord.

I also regularly celebrate at the Thursday morning Holy Communion, which ministers to similar congregations.

I am personally very grateful of having had the opportunity through the years of exercising my ministry in retirement.  At 84 years of age, it is probably time for me to finally stand down, and I do so with feelings of thankfulness.
