Welcome to the May edition of the #Meltham Parish magazine. Thank you to all those who have contributed to our new feature on Christian music. We hope you enjoy reading about how music impacts different people for different reasons. Pam tells us how she remembers getting a glimpse of Prince Philip and also looking forward to seeing her family again. Enjoy learning about how St Mary’s was originally decorated before the redecoration in the 1930’s – it really is an eye opener.
Finally, ‘Thank you’ to John Steel photography who have contributed the photos on the front page of St Bart’s and the back page of St James’ (if you look hard you might even be able to see Rev John.)
Unfortunately, the original recording had technical issues with sound. Fortunately, we did a separate recording using a phone in case we had issues experienced previously! The link to this can now be found here: https://youtu.be/xPtlbWgRgf8
Please take a pebble. A small initiative of #RealLove on Good Friday in Meltham on our Greenway. 400 stones have been painted by Christians in Meltham. They all have a heart- personally designed by the artist – and are a reminder that the Easter message is – Jesus loves us without limits. You’ll find them in #Meltham down on the greenway. Please take one home or to give to others. You may even want to hide them elsewhere for others to find!
The four Church of England churches within the Meltham Parish have all decorated a tree and a cross outside. Please stop by and take a look.
A reminder that their is a service at St Bartholomew’s this afternoon at 3pm featuring readings and musical excerpts from Stainer’s Crucifixion and Maunder’s Olivet to Calvary sung by 3 soloists. It can also be viewed live on YouTube hopefully using this link: https://youtu.be/8hjfJ6SKB8I
