There's a man - Habib Sadat - who has been living in a house in South Hackney for the last few months who is an asylum seeker from Afghanistan. His host is getting married and can no longer house him. So Habib needs somewhere to live. If anyone feels that they are in a position to offer him accommodation, please speak with Andrew, Gill or Doug.

Sun, 26 August - there'll be an informal 4pm 'Last Sunday of the Month' service here in church. August theme: Songs of Praise. All welcome!

Concert - Thurs 30 August, 7pm. Wyatt Sinfonia & East London Symphony Orchestra. Conducted by Zoe Kundu & Jamie Conway. Sibelius - Violin Concerto; Pejacevic - Symphony in F# minor; World Premiere of Robin Haigh's 'Lago for Clarinet, Harp & Strings'.

We'd like to run a Book Sale on Sat 1 Sept. The key to this is finding enough volunteers to help. If you can help - please sign the list at the back of church. Please let Andrew know asap as we need to start advertising it.

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.
