What's on - 24 June onwards

This last Tuesday we had an evening in church introducing people to the 'PRAYER BUS' project and the work of Art Refuge – with refugees in Calais. If you would like to learn more about or support either project, please have a word with Gill.

The next church cleaning is this Sat, 30 June, 9.30am - 11.30am. Please note that this is a week earlier than the usual first Saturday of the month (as there is a music workshop in church on the morning of Sat 7 July).

Junior Church SUMMER PICNIC. For all members of Junior Church, their parents and carers - in the Rectory garden on Sunday 1st July, straight after church. Please bring some picnic food with you.

The PCC meets at 8.05pm, after the 7.30pm Eucharist, on Tuesday 3 July.

There will be an exciting OASIS DAY led by the new Spirituality Advisor for Stepney, Catherine Armstrong, entitled 'Living Generously' on Tues 10 July at St Andrew's Church, Holborn from 10.45am -3.30pm. Cost is £10. Please sign up now if you would like to attend.

14 July at 7pm in church. Performance of 'THE MESSIAH' in the church. All very welcome! Please spread the word to friends. If you'd like take part in the performance, please have a word with Victoria.

On 28 July we're going on a parish outing. There are suggestions for our destination on the flip chart at the back of church. Everyone who'd like to go that day has one tick/one vote. Please tick next to where you'd like to go.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in the UK on 25 May 2018. To help us become compliant as a parish, please - if you haven't done so already - could you fill out a 'Consent Form', which you'll find at the back of church. Please leave filled-in forms at the back of church before you go home.

Some volunteering opportunities:

We'd like to hear from you if you would be willing to:

(A) Join a rota of altar servers

(B) Do some ushering when we have baptisms and at major festivals such as Easter and Christmas. These people would be in addition to the Stewards on the rota

(C) Be willing to come in to church to organise the altar linen kept in the Vestry

Dates for FUTURE PCC meetings in the Parish Room (8.05pm): 18 Sept, 9 Oct, 20 Nov.

Please sign up in the file on the table at the back of church if you have time to get involved in church opening on a Saturday, 9.30 - 3pm. As little as half an hour of your time is really useful. We have an obligation to one of our funders for the repair work on our Tower to be open 40 Saturdays a year. And anyhow - we'd like to be open as much as possible.
