What's on - 8 July 2018

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.

Apologies, on Thursday 12th July there won't be a 10.30am Eucharist (as all the church Primary Schools in Hackney are using the church for a farewell to Year 6 service at 10.30am, and Doug is away so it won't be possible to hold the service in the Rectory).

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.

Would you be free to do some setting up for the choir and orchestra during the afternoon of Thursday 12 July? If you are, please, talk with Victoria or Andrew. We'll meet at 1pm in church on Thurs 12th.

Datoru & Silverline Paul-Worika are celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary: Sat 14 July, 4-10pm, New Kingshold Community Centre & Sun 15th July in church. Congratulations to them! RSVP 07720 373 542 or 07828 129 668.

All welcome at Steve's installation as Vicar of St Michael & All Angels, Stoke Newington Common, corner of Northwold Rd & Fountayne Rd, N16 7ED, 7pm on Wed 25 July.

On 28 July we're going on a parish outing to Eastbourne. Please sign the list at the back of church if you would like to come. We'll meet on the Church Crescent side of the church at 9am.

We'd like to run a Book Sale on either Sat 25 Aug or Sat 1 Sept. The key to this is finding enough volunteers to help. If you can help on either date, or both - please sign the list at the back of church.

This year's Confirmation will be on Sat 3 Nov at 5pm (rehearsal for all at 3.30pm at St Paul's Cathedral). If you would like to be confirmed, please sign the list at the back of church. If you'd like to talk about what Confirmation involves, please speak with Andrew or Gill. Deadline for signing up - 9 Sept.

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.

The next church cleaning is Sat 4th August.

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.
