Church Opening – as at 24th June 2020

Church Opening (1) – our church is now open for private prayer on weekdays between 10.00 – 11.00.

Church Opening (2) – at the time of writing (24th June) it looks as if we will be back open for Sunday worship beginning on 5th July. However, it also looks like we will not be able to sing hymns and psalms so the service will be said with organ music and even this may change by next weekend!!! To begin with we will offer you one service at 10.00. Also, with the need for social distancing, we will need to restrict the numbers so sadly there is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate everyone. Communion will be given in one kind and only by standing to receive. Further details may well be sent out via the weekly newsletter.

There are no toilet facilities available.

Junior Church – 21st June

Huge thanks to Laura and Grace for their reading, Rafferty and Ayrton for their famous example and our Churchwarden Bill for praying for us this week.

There are just a couple of slots left remaining to be able to star in one of our videos, or produce a craft activity - so do let me know if you'd like to take part. (Schedule attached)

Please also find the activity sheet attached.

Our quilt is being sewn together as we speak - I'm so looking forward to sharing the finished article with you all.

Many thanks to Laura and Eley for all their help with the Junior Church cupboard, which looks fab!

Christian Aid – updated June 2020

Thanks to more donations, the final total raised during Christian Aid Week is now £3,450, which is only £80 less than last year. This is an amazing result considering the difficulties involved, and not being able to collect as we normally do. I am extremely grateful to all those who contributed to furthering the excellent work carried out by CA in developing countries, among the poorest of our neighbours. Very many thanks, Isobel Moses.

Junior Church – 14th June

As always, it will be available from 9am on Sunday. Activity Sheet is inked here (opens in new tab).

Huge thanks this week to Seema and Fr Nick for their contributions, and a special mention to Tabitha and Jemima (and Bethan) for telling us all about Florence Nightingale.

If anyone else's family would like to tell us about a person they have been researching, do let me know. Next week's topic is Equality - that everyone is special to God.

Thank you to those of you who have kindly volunteered already to help either with producing something for Junior Church, or to help tidy the cupboard.
It's hugely appreciated.

I am attaching a plan for the next few weeks showing what is needed and the topics for each week.

If you could all offer to contribute one element, we could easily share it out between us. You will see that we only have 3 more videos to make, and afterwards all that is required is a simple activity sheet or idea.

Please also feel free to offer extra things that aren't on the plan eg a song.
If you can fill in what you might offer, please do that and return the plan back to me. Thank you so much!!

You may have seen that our KS2 Zoom group has made a video Letter for Creation. This has been received and highly appreciated by the Church of England's environment team.

If you haven't seen it, its available here:

I also have all the pieces of the quilt now, so watch this space to see the finished quilt!

Junior Church – Trinity Sunday

Many thanks to Amy and Hannah for the lovely reading, and Fr Nigel for our prayers.

The activity sheet is attached as ever (opens in new tab). If your children research someone who made a difference it would be lovely to see what they come up with!

If you have any more quilt pieces it would be great to get this pulled together this week, so do please bring those to me or deliver to church by Sunday

Christian Aid Week 2020 – updated

The total raised for this amounts to £3,375, which is magnificent considering the difficult circumstances this year, when we could not collect from house-to-house, nor outside Kew Gardens, as usual. This is partly due to more than a few generous donations. But all contributions are very gratefully received, and without everyone involved this total would not have been possible. (Last year’s total was £3,530.) With very many thanks indeed to everybody concerned, from Isobel Moses.
