took place in mid October. The congregation consisted of many dogs and their owners, together with Florence, the only cat. Rather disappointingly there were no rabbits, guinea pigs or other small animals although John, who was leading the service, was relieved that he did not have to bless a snake. We gave thanks to God for the joy our pets bring to us, sang some hymns thanks to Barry, the organist, and John blessed each animal by name. A collection was taken and we were able to send £65 to Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital.
