We Believe!

The Easter Service in Steeple Aston enjoyed our Easter Choir singing the first performance of the Rector's setting of the Creed. As we are all now familiar with the Gloria, Sanctus & Agnus of our very own congregational setting, Steeple organist Martin Dale asked Marcus if he would add the Creed to the music we sing.

On Easter Sunday, Tackley & North Aston held early services with warm and good-sized congregations, the Rector leading at Tackley, and Bruce returning to North Aston
