Happy Birthday, Your Majesty!

90 years young and 64 years on the throne (so far) - what is the secret of the Queen's remarkable sense of duty and extraordinary contribution to the United Kingdom, the British Commonwealth and the global community? It is a question she herself answered in 2002:

I know just how much I rely on my faith to guide me through the good times and the bad. Each day is a new beginning. I know that the only way to live my life is to try to do what is right, to take the long view, to give of my best in all that the day brings, and to put my trust in God .. I draw strength from the message of hope in the Christian gospel.

Come and find out more about the Queen's personal faith at the Royal Songs of Praise at St Matthew's Morley on Sunday 12th June at 6 pm. The subtitle of the service and the title of our souvenirs (for adults as well as children) will be "The Servant Queen and the King she serves."

All the pupils of Smalley Richardson Endowed School will be coming to St John the Baptist Church on Friday 10th June at 10 am to celebrate the Queen's birthday and be given a souvenir of the special occasion.

The Very Revd Geoffrey Marshall
