The Organist of St Peter’s who had been involved with many of our Services died suddenly a few weeks before this Service. His place was taken by Mr Paul Joslin.
The Service was conducted by Rev. John Cross Priest in Charge and Hon. Chaplain to the Ward Club

Hymn Through all the changing scenes of life
Hymn Firmly I believe and truly
This Hymn was a very specific request from the Master with the words not in the St Peter’s Hymn Book
Firmly I believe and truly
God is Three, and God is one;
And I next acknowledge duly
Manhood taken by the Son.
And I trust and hope most fully
In that Manhood crucified;
And each thought and deed unruly
Do to death, as He has died.
Simply to his grace and wholly
Light and life and strength belong,
And I love supremely, solely,
Him the Holy, Him the Strong.
Adoration may be given,
With and through the angelic host,
To the God of earth and heaven,
Father,Son, and Holy Ghost.
