Six down, two to go

I’m talking about weddings, of course! We’ve now been to six weddings this year – only another two to go before the year is out…

It went very well, anyway. It was in Cambridge, so we travelled up by train on Saturday morning and got there in plenty of time. The journey up was actually fairly painless, even though we had to go via Liverpool Street! The wedding service was lovely – Mike spoke really well, and the band were great. We particularly liked the songs that they sung during the interlude – the girl who sang had a lovely voice! They really did justice to the Celtic version of “When I Survey”.

Anyway, afterwards we went to the Regal (a Wetherspoons pub) for lunch with Roy and Janette and the boys, and then had a wander round Cambridge. Despite it raining, we managed to stay mostly dry and get to the evening do without problems. It was at a hotel called the University Arms, which is very nice (if expensive!). So we had a good time catching up with a few people from church who we hadn’t spoken to in a while. Gavin and Sarah offered to give us a lift back home, which meant that we didn’t have to spent two hours on the train (plus the walk to and from the station at both ends).

All in all it was a great day, and I wish Chris and Ruth all the best 🙂 (Not that either of them will read this, but the sentiment was there).

On Sunday we went to not one, not two, but THREE services! Two in the morning, and one in the evening. The morning services were harvest thanksgiving services, and so there were a few people there who don’t normally come which was nice to see. In the evening, Andy was doing the first part of a series of “Firm Foundations” courses – this was was on “Worship: The Principles”. We both very much enjoyed it, and it was good to see quite a few people from outside the parish coming – including quite a few from the St Albright’s congregation.

Right, I think that pretty much brings you up to date with the weekend. My copy of “Dig Out Your Soul”, the new Oasis album, arrived today and I’m actually rather enjoying it. I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I’ve really been liking what I’ve heard so far. I will try and post up a fuller review of that when I’ve had the chance to listen to it a few times!
