A final reminder that the performance of the Advent and Christmas sections of Handel’s Messiah by our professional choir and the Purcell Players will be at 5.30 pm this Sunday! Tickets (£15 or £10 for under 16s) are still available HERE, and there will also be tickets on sale at the door, which include a programme, mulled wine and a mince pie. Please come and join for this wonderful musical rendition of the prophecies pointing towards the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus at Bethlehem. Funds raised will go towards the work of the church, including the maintenance of our much appreciated choral tradition.
On Sunday morning, we are delighted to be baptising four children at the 9.30 am Eucharist. We look forward to welcoming Lola, Francesca, Arthur, Julia and their families for this special occasion. Canon Peter Galloway, our Honorary Assistant Priest, will be preaching at the 11.15 Matins service, while Fr Tim is taking a service at St John’s, Bethnal Green.
For anyone who missed the delightful Nativity Play (huge thanks to Martina and to all the parents who helped and to the children who took part!) or the Advent Service of Light last weekend, please see the pictures HERE.
A reminder that we are not saying Evening Prayer in the church again until Wednesday 13th, as we are hosting charity and school Carol Services every night till then, but please do join the clergy by saying it in the peace of your own homes.
And finally, our new Youth Group for year 7 and above will be meeting for the second time at 6 pm on Thursday 14th December in the church. please contact Martina. There will be pizza, games, quizzes and other activities.
Stir up your power, O God, and come among us. Heal our wounds, calm our fears and give us peace through Jesus our Redeemer. Amen [Common Worship, Night Prayer in Advent]
With my love and prayers
