    As we get near to Christmas we think of people that we will be visiting or visting us and of the visitors that were the first people to behold the infant Christ - the shepherds.

    Sunday is the Second Sunday of Advent and the Christmas decorations are now up and ready for the Christmas carol marathon this week with the Springboard Charity, Wetherby School and the Chaplaincy Among Deaf and Deaf Blind People all coming to the Annunciation to celebrate Christmas and what it means for the life of their organisations. Its wonderful that in this so-called secular age people look to our church for hospitality and support. 

    But of course our age is far from secular and judging by the recent upheavals in global politics people seem to be more guided by feelings and beliefs. I wonder if as society becomes increasingly detached from reason liberal-minded parishes like ours, nurtured by traditional worship will be like the monasteries of the so-called Dark Ages - places where hope and thoughtfulness are kept alive. The Prophets of Ancient Israel had a similar vocation centuries before Christ - looking for the new shoots of recovery amidst the wreckage of the folly of their own time.

    Many thanks to Vladka and her team for the time that they gave to decorate the Christmas tree on Thursday morning and thanks also to Home House in Portman Square for generously donating the tree itself.


    On Sunday we'll be saying 'good-bye' to Hannah, the Director of the Children's Choir. If you would like to show your appreciation for the work that she has done over the last three years please let me have it. Thank you.

    Thanks also to those who have volunteered to sing or help with the hospitality at the Carol Service for the Chaplaincy Among Deaf & Deaf Blind People this Friday at 6.30pm. The more the merrier so please let me know if you would like to be involved.

    The main church Christmas services are:

    Saturday 17 December
    7.00pm Traditional carol Service
    Saturday 24 December, Christmas Eve
    4.00pm Carols Around the Crib for Children
    11.00pm Midnight Mass
    Sunday 25 December
    10.30am Parish Mass

    Do come if you are in London and join other Christians in the Christmas celebration if you are away.

    I will be signing Supplementary Information Forms for applications to church schools at the beginning of January before the cut off date for Westminster schools on 15 January. If you would like to make a date to sign forms please contact me.

    I look forward to seeing you on Sunday. Dress warmly. The church heating is on - but only just!
    Yours in Christ

    Fr Gerald
