The Royal Gallery project – phase 1

The refurbishment of the staircase and the rooms behind the Royal Gallery has now started and is expected to take 6 – 8 weeks. Once the work is completed we shall have a place to display the pictures and artefacts which have been stored until now, the choir will have a warmer and pleasant place to prepare for services and there will be extra space for meetings and other activities.

ChurchSuite

Thank you to everyone who registered their interest in using ChurchSuite. On reflection, we have decided that this is best suited to the Junior Church and our work with children and families. We will therefore be requesting that parents sign up to the Junior Church element so that they can register their children electronically in the future. Anyone not involved with this aspect of church life will have their data removed from ChurchSuite unless they inform us they would like to remain. Any questions about this, please see Emily

Zaytoun

Fairly traded produce from Palestine. The next sale will be on the second Sunday in February (9th) after the 8am and 10am services. Olive oil, Medjoul dates, almonds, soap and other delights!

Our Advent Prayer Stations

On Friday afternoon, we hosted Year 5&6 pupils from the Queen’s School to explore Advent through a variety of prayer stations. These were all based on Isaiah chapter 9, and covered topics such as light for dark places, hope for the year ahead, how we can achieve peace, prayers for our government and writing to refugee children. The children immersed themselves in the activities and provided really thoughtful and reflective responses. They found some of it challenging, but in a good way! Thank you for visiting us, Queen’s!

Choral Music at Saint Anne’s Kew

The choir at Saint Anne’s, Kew, is a community of many talents. Architects, art historians, doctors, solicitors, students, musical enthusiasts all, share their gifts and express their commitment by meeting to rehearse on Friday evening each week in preparation for singing at the 10.00 a.m. Mass on Sunday. In addition to leading the congregational worship, the choir performs a wide range of repertoire from plainsong and renaissance polyphony to new music composed specially for the ensemble. We welcome new members and would be happy to hear from anyone with musical ambition and a good sense of humour. Please contact Julian Kelly, director of music, at saintannekew@gmail.com or by visiting in person after 10.00 a.m. Mass on Sunday.
