Animal Blessing - August 3 
Animal Blessing This month will start with a regular special service: Animal Blessing on Sunday 3rd August. All pets (able to fit in the church) will be most welcome with their owners. It is so important to recognise the vital part the animal kingdom plays in everyone’s life, and while our pets, large and small, become part of the family and we cherish them as such, we also give thanks for farm and wild animals. Sadly we realise that there is still much cruelty, neglect and disregard for the welfare of animals and indeed the whole of the natural world and in our prayers we remember all this before God as well as thanking him for the beauty and variety of his creation.
