    The theme this week is generosity. God becoming man in the person of Jesus Christ is the supreme example of generosity. God 'empties' himself into creation to save and enrich it.

    We continue last week's theme of generosity. Far from generosity being a sacrifice Christians think of it as a joy.

    Today's theme is humility. The word comes from the same Greek word meaning 'earth'. To be humbled is to be well grounded in the things of God.

    We continue the theme of humility. Its one of the core values of the Incarnation: God rooting himself in the life of humanity.

    print email Fifteenth Sunday After Trinity

    This Sunday is the Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity. St Paul exhorts us to have the 'same mind as Christ' and Jesus guides us to be authoritative not authoritarian. The Sunday School will be learning about the Old Testament figure of Samson - a strong, passionate man who overcame much and sacrificed his own life in the service of his God. We see in him something of what the Christ would be like.
     
    On Sunday we are having a fire drill assuming that the weather isn't wet. We did this last year. With so many children it is important that we know how to evacuate the building in an emergency. The drill will take place after the mass has started and the children are downstairs. Unlike last year however the children will leave via the nursery. They will be lead up the stairs into Bryanston Street by Vladka and other members of the Sunday School team. We will assemble on the pedestrian area in Quebec Street outside the Sportsman Casino. When we return to church I will take a view on where we would have got to in the mass usually and go on from there. We will all be away from church at the normal time.
     
    The most important part of the exercise is to get across the message that parents who are upstairs must vacate the building without going downstairs to find their children. If this happened in a real emergency there would be a crush on the stairs with potentially disastrous results. Please trust the adults downstairs to bring your children out. Thank you.
     
    As we continue our centenary celebrations the next big event is the Jamie Lonsdale Concert on Thursday 23 October, 6.30pm for prosecco and 7.30pm for the music. Tickets: £25/£60 for 4. It should be a wonderful evening. For more info please contactwww.jamie-lonsdale.com / 01367 8205 or lroyde@gmail.com.
     
    This coming Tuesday (30 September) members of other churches throughout Westminster are coming to visit the Annunciation. I will give a talk at 7.00pm followed by a glass of wine. Do come and 'meet the neighbours' if you are free.
     
    I was  away last weekend in the Baltic but I hear that it was a bit noisy during the mass. Especially if you are new to the parish please bear in mind that the Annunciation has a fine tradition of liturgy and music that is cherished. Please help by enabling young children to catch the vision and see how being in a special place and drawing from it 'the peace of God which passes all understanding' can be a bedrock of their lives. Having said that please speak up and sing up during the mass. There's a time to be heard and a time not.
     
    I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
     
    Yours in Christ
     
    Fr Gerald

    The evening will include a Welcome and Talk by Fr Gerald Beauchamp (Priest-in-charge) about the church’s history and
    architecture, including some of its statues and relics, as well as the tradition behind its style of worship. There will also be the opportunity to look around the Church.
