Boney M, a correction  In my sermon last week I described Boney M as a German pop group (which is what I have always understood to be true). I am happy to say that I am now better-informed, and am pleased to record that the band who appeared on stage in the 1970s were all from the Caribbean, and one of them had a family home in Harlesden (which bears a blue plaque). They were formed in Germany, and managed by a German man, who wrote some of their songs and sang on the records.

Mothering Sunday  The Fourth Sunday in Lent is Mothering Sunday, and we shall be blessing flowers at St Mary Mags, which you can take away with you, as is our custom.

St Peter’s is closed for worship I’m afraid we have to concentrate our resources at St Mary Magdalene’s for the moment. We aim to be back in St Peter’s at Easter, when hopefully people will feel more confident about worshipping in that confined space. Please do join us at St Mary Mags at 9.30 or online.
