Saturday 26th May dawned bright and fair. Despite it being a holiday weekend we were hoping for a good attendance at the Bazaar.
The stallholders arrived early to set out their goods, and the bunting and Union Jacks were hung up around the perimeter of the Church to add a colourful flavour to the proceedings and to advertise this particularly “British” occasion.
By 11.00 people were queuing up at the gate to get in. Fr Leonard rang the bell and the gate was opened! There was an immediate rush to the Jewellery Stall where the three Ladies had their hands full keeping up with the sales. The Book Stall also did brisk business and soon all the other stalls were busy selling.

On the morning before the last concert of our very successful 15th Spring Organ Series, we were delighted to welcome Hannu Niemelä, baritone, accompanied by Pauli Pietiläinen on the Organ, who sung the beautiful ‘Finnish prayer’ by Taneli Kuusisto, at the end of our morning worship. Roughly translated, the Finnish Prayer means: “Bless and preserve us by your Hand. Lead us on the right way, give us strength. You have all the Power and Spirit.”
The congregation sat spellbound as Hannu’s beautiful voice filled the church to the rafters and at the end they received a well-deserved round of applause.
We are very grateful to the Finnish Institute for their support for our final concert of the Series, and we hope that all visitors to our Website will keep a look out next year for details of our 16th Spring Organ Series.
The final concert of the 15th Spring Organ Series 2018 will take place on Sunday 6th May 2018 at 2030 hrs. Presenting the Finnish organist Pauli Pietiläinen, who along with the singers Lida Dimitriadi and Hannu Niemelä will give the audience a contemporary version of appeal and faith through works that are heard for the first time in Greece.
