Funeral and visits

Monday 17th September 2012
Now I know who has been scuffing up the leaves under the trees in the churchyard, which I noticed after conducting a funeral and burial at St Aidan's Thorneyburn.
     In the afternoon the Churchwarden and I went to St Cuthbert's Bellingham to welcome a group of students from Durham on a summer course relating to Border history and architecture.  Like others they noticed the special atmosphere of the church whose "spiritual strapline" in the Deanery leaflet is "an honest and straightforward church in which you can be yourself".
     During their visit a small group on a prayer walk down the North Tyne valley called in and stayed to talk and pray.
