Sunday morning Parish Eucharist with Kids' Club.
Deh tu di un’umile preghiera – Maria Stuarda – G. Donizetti
Kids' Club goes on during the service in three age groups: Sand and Gravel for under 5s, Pebbles for 5 to 8 year olds and BLAST for those over 8 years old.
The service is always followed with time for a tea, a coffee or, if there's a reason to celebrate, something more bubbly to drink.
Music - Maria Stuarda – G. Donizetti
Maria Stuarda by Donizetti was composed in 1835. This morning’s aria and chorus is from Act 2 towards the end of opera before Mary, Queen of Scots is beheaded. She calls the people gathered to a final prayer "Ah! May Thou hear the sound of our humble prayer" and, together, she and the crowd pray for God's mercy.
