Brother Nigel, as he is affectionately known to many of us, celebrated his big birthday on Sunday by leading our Morning Prayer service both in person at St Giles’ and on the podcast. The cake didn’t stand a chance against the always-trustworthy builder’s hand.
Nigel’s extended family, unable to get together informally at home, attended church en (socially distanced) masse to help him celebrate – what a great idea!
We all wish Nigel a very happy birthday and many more of them!

Sunday was also the day of our rather delayed APCM, at which we re-elected our Churchwardens, John Wheatley and Simon McDowell, our Deanery Synod Reps, John Wheatley and Mark Wells, and confirmed that we continued to support the rest of our PCC, namely, Richard Beckingsale, Jennifer Pickering, Nigel Lowe and Kate Holliday. We also re-appointed our sidesmen and thanked everyone for their service, past and future.
