‘The S.H.O.T. group visited St Mary’s Episcopal Church where we gave the third degree to the rebuilt J.J. Binns instrument installed by Henry Willis in 1957. Carefully adapted for its new home, this instrument compliments the musical requirements in this delightful well appointed building by James Miller 1894’.

Lord, you have taught us
that all our doings without love are nothing worth:
send your Holy Spirit
and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love,
the true bond of peace and of all virtues,
without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
