    This week's theme is Generosity - a good one on which to start the summer term. It can all get a bit fraught with SATs and so much else going on. Genrosity of spirit makes life easier all round.

    Early on the Monday after Easter Day I left for Scotland where I joined around 20 others from churches in the West End for a pilgrimage to the island of Iona. Before I left I was anxious about all sorts of things. Would the arrangements work out OK? Would people have a good time? And what about the weather? I'm glad to say that we had a marvellous pilgrimage. The weather was spectacular with almost no rain and glorious sunshine. If you know Scotland you will appreciate how good this is! Anticipating that I would need some downtime after the pilgrimage I then had a few days in Paris visiting friends. Once again, the weather was beautiful. So I'm back and if you have been away for Easter I imagine that you are, too. School starts again on Monday and we're all wondering how time goes so quickly. Just one more term before the end of another academic year! In all this melee its hard to find time to stop and stare. But we should. In tomorrow's gospel Jesus interrupts his disciples' blind panic and invites them to inspect his wounds and eat with him. Its a salutary lesson. If we are too busy to reflect on life's pains and eat with the people we cherish then we need to rethink our lives. The Annual Parochial Church Meeting is on Tuesday at 7.00pm. Please come to elect the Churchwardens and members of the Parochial Church Council as well as reviewing the life of the parish. There will be a glass of wine afterwards. I attach the Annual Report for you to read in advance. I also attach the list of people who are signed up to the Electoral Roll. Please let me know if you are not on it and you think that you should be.
    Abi Murray is putting on one of her great designer sales on Friday and Saturday. I'm not quite sure what time the doors open but do come on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. Yours in Christ Fr Gerald

    Tomorrow is the most important day in the church's calendar: Easter Day, the day of the resurrection. It has been an intense week in church as we have re-enacted Christ's arrival in Jerusalem, his Last Supper and crucifixion. And now we celebrate not just his victory over death but our triumph in God's power over all that causes death especially human sin. Easter is not just about Jesus raised from the dead but our vocation to rise above moral weakness. Tomorrow is one of great joy making every Sunday a resurrection day. There's no Sunday School tomorrow. We will all be in church together. There will be resources downstairs for the children who find it hard to stay upstairs. Gavin will fetch people for communion at the appropriate time. On Monday I am going to Scotland for a week. I'm leading a pilgrimage to the Isle of Iona, one of the Inner Hebrides. Its the place where St Columba arrived from Ireland in the sixth century and began his mission to northern Britain. We are 18 in the group and made up of members of the Annunciation, St Cyprian's and All Saints Margaret Street. The success of the trip is partly dependent on good weather and I'm glad to see from the forecast that its looking better than expected. Please pray for us and we pray for the Annunciation. Iona has been described as a 'thin place' - a place where heaven and earth seem very close. When I get back I'm having a few more days vacation. I'll be back on Friday 17 April. There's no Mass on Tuesday 7 April. On 14 April Fr John Barrie will be doing the Tuesday mass. Next Sunday (12 April) Fr Stephen will be with you. The church will be open as usual during the day except Easter Monday with Stuart Voy and Quentin Williams, the vergers in attendance. There are two events coming up that need to be in your diaries, please: Tuesday 21 April, 7.00pm The Annual Parochial Church Meeting in Church. The Churchwardens and Parochial Church Council members are elected and the Annual Report received. There will be a glass of wine afterwards. Friday 24 - Saturday 25 April Designer Sale in Church. For more details please contact Abi Murray abchis@mac.com. If you are away on holiday I hope that you are having a marvellous time. Happy Easter. Yours in Christ Fr Gerald
