ST PETER’S CHURCH: At the family service last Sunday morning, reader Anne Hodgson choreographed some unlikely thespians to enact the reading from Luke’s gospel about the rich and powerful who look only to their own interests. Churchwarden Andrew Robinson took the part of the rich man who demanded the biggest and best of everything: a valet, a cameo role played to perfection by Michael Scargill, an Aston Martin not a Mazda, a majestic Labrador not a lap-sized dachshund, and a horse for his hunting. Real dogs made an appearance but the use of coconut shells outside the church door convinced many of a real equine presence also. Jacqui Hand was the voice of God calling the rich man to reverse his priorities. Ann’s pet crow then made an appearance and he too had to learn to share what he had. Next week are the usual services plus on Sunday are the Memory Walks in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society, starting at 2pm from the church hall and ending there with tea and cakes. There will be three walks to suit a range of aspirations. Fospa teas continue until October.
