Jubilee Service in Church

On Sunday 3rd June 2012 a special service was held in the Parish Church to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll. The Revd Sharon Miles our Priest, in introducing the service reminded the congregation of the unique nature of a Diamond Jubilee and the many way in which the Queen represents the country, through both good times and bad times. She has been a symbol of Great Britain, known all over the world and this day we give thanks for her reign.
The service will on this occasion include hymns sung at the Queen’s Coronation Service in 1953.

A reading from Isaiah 40.12-17,27-end

Gospel Reading Mathew 28.16-20

Sermon Revd Heather Connell

The Choir sing - Jubilate

The picture below shows our bell ringing team, posing at my request for the camera. They are about to ring a Quarter Peal of the Church Bells. Our Parish Church has six bells, plus one bell used only as a solemn tolling bell at funerals. As a matter of interest a full peal with six bells would be 720 permutations of the order in which each of the six bells are rung

The Revd Sharon Miles is seen holding a framed Telegram from the Queen, sent on 10th June 1977, it says- "The Queen sincerely thanks the Bell Ringers of St Osyth Church for their kind and loyal message on the occasion of Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee".
