What a lovely, uplifting afternoon we had at St. Mary’s to celebrate 60 years of FiSH.   In a moving service of hymns, readings and memories, the overwhelming message was a positive one of community and neighbourliness.  We heard a stirring reflection on the theme from Bishop Richard Harries, together with readings from Sarah Olney MP,  The Rev’d Stephen Stavrou, and a fascinating insight to our history from The Rev’d Jonathan Haynes.  All officiated brilliantly by The Rev’d James Hutchings.   We heard moving testimony to FiSH from our members Pauline Jenkins and Sally Madden, and from volunteers Peter Cowell and Jill Simeoni.  Carl Speck told us about FiSH music activities and led the Afternoon Choir in a lovely version of Lean on Me and the moving anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone.  Barnaby Silverstone, St. Mary’s Organ Scholar played beautifully.  And of course we had a lovely cup of tea to end the afternoon, thanks to our volunteers.   Team FiSH staff and trustees would like to thank everyone for coming and supporting us – here’s to the next 60 years!  See the full service streamed here (starts around 12 minutes in):   St Mary’s Barnes Parish Eucharist 8 October – YouTube
