Ham Common - 13

Here is St Andrew's Church on Ham Common.

I find it so sad that this is not a Catholic church! It is Church of England - yet in so many respects the liturgy is much better than that at St Thomas Aquinas, Ham. Indeed, this Anglican parish is a most lively one. The lack of unity amongst the various Christian denominations is truly pathetic.

Please pray for the Vicar, other clergy and laity who worship in this lovely building.

It is interesting to note that Dr John Sentamu, the Anglican Archbishop of York (who jumped out of a plane at 13,000 ft* on Friday to raise money for the Armed Forces) served as a curate at St Andrew's Ham during the early 1980's.

*Please note - he was wearing a parachute and had a safe landing!

Happy Sunday!
