Paid for by patrons
At St Andrew’s Leytonstone we had the final service of our much-loved parish priest, Fr Duncan, this morning. I’ve interrupted the Song Cycle pilgrimage to come back and play. He is retiring and we will all miss him loads. I wanted to do something special for this service, so I asked him for a favourite poem. When he said “Love bade me welcome” by George Herbert, I was delighted; and I had already started working on it, anyway.
