The Abbey celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany Service during the Sunday 10.00am Eucharist on the 8th January, with a full Congregation.
Epiphany means ‘manifestation’ or ‘showing’ and continues the celebrations of Jesus’ birth by the visit of the Three Wise Men, who represent the Gentiles.
The Three Wise Men, Dominic Brenton, Geoff Mordan and Rob Gower who looked wonderful in their colourful robes, led the Procession to the Crib with Revd Tim Sledge.
The Three Wise Men, members of the congregation and their children gathered around the Crib in the South Aisle and offered their Gifts, mainly toys and games which will go to the Children’s Society.
A lovely colourful enjoyable Service which the children in particular, really enjoyed
