The church is open daily
Mother Emma is taking a well-deserved break so you are therefore stuck with me for the next couple of weeks! If there is anything you would like help with, or you would just like to talk, please don’t hesitate to call or email. If I’m not there please do leave a message, and note that my day off’s Saturday, and I’m obviously not at my desk on Sundays!
We had some really excellent training for our homeless ministry a few weeks ago, to which Dave, the Big Issue seller from by the Ivy, kindly came to share his experience. Though we didn’t have many people, I was struck by the fact that most of those who came said at the end that, while they had seen Dave most days for years, they had never said hello; whereas now they will say hi to him as a friend. Whatever else works or doesn’t in this new venture, that is precisely why we are doing it, and it will be worth doing even if we achieve nothing else.
We have also been asked by Welcome Churches, a national network for churches offering a welcome to refugees, if we might run a weekly coffee morning for refugees in Earls Court. I am currently trying to arrange a venue and logistics, but if this is something you might be able to help coordinate please get in touch with me.
We are looking for volunteers for a Victorian fun day on 24th September and for our Guy Fawkes bonfire night on 4th November, as well as for people to take stalls for our Christmas fair on 26th November. Please contact Leonora if you can help with any of those, especially if you know anyone who might want to take a stall at the Christmas Fair.
And in the meantime, I hope you’re all having a good summer, whether you’re here in Kensington, in the country or away on holiday.
With best wishes and wishing you every blessing,
4th August 2022
