    This Sunday (16 June)

    … is Trinity Sunday.

    Since Advent Sunday last year, we have heard the revelation of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Now the Church seeks to live in the full reality of the diviner vision. In our daily lives we reflect the glory of God and shine a light on the world’s darker recesses.

    Last Week

    Michele Lyons was discharged from hospital and continues to recover. Michele and the family are very grateful for the support that they have received. Please continue to remember them in your prayers.

    A third daughter was born Nete and Thomas on Wednesday. Mother and baby are doing well. Congratulations to all the family.

    This Week

    Children’s Choir on Tuesday, 3.45pm in church.

    Informal Prayer with Taizé music on Wednesday 19 June, 7.00pm in church. All welcome. Wine & cheese follows.

    A Capella Music Group on Thursday, 9.30am in church.

    Corpus Christi High Mass & Procession on Thursday 20 June, 6.30pm at All Saints Margaret Street.

    Looking Ahead

    Emergency Evacuation Drill in church next Sunday during mass.

    Prosecco Party at the Vicarage on Thursday 27 June, 6.00pm – 9.00pm. Please let me know if you would like to come. Thank you.

    Pilgrimage to Armenia in 12-21 May 2020. Price: £1675 per person in a single room. Please let me know if you might be interested.

    Booking the Church for Music Rehearsals

    If you look at the Annunciation website you will see that there is now a page for booking the church https://www.annunciationmarblearch.org.uk/bookings. It’s aimed primarily at musicians using the north aisle as a rehearsal space but the PCC will think about any appropriate use of the church for events. Please spread the word. Thank you.

    I’m very grateful to the Hard Rock Hotel which now holds a set of church keys. This will help with the site management for bookings. The hotel will also be able to use the church if it needs to evacuate in the event of an emergency.

    Jobs Becoming Available

    The parish is Looking for a Part-Time Administrator and a Part-Time Youth & Children’s Worker. These posts will be advertised very soon.

    The Diocese of London Looks Forward to 2030

    Capital Vision 2020 was a programme designed throughout the diocese to enable the church to be ‘Confident, Compassionate and Creative’. This is now drawing to an end and Bishop Sarah is asking the diocese to think about the decade beyond next year.

    So, the diocese has set up a listening exercise including an online survey. Please go to https://www.london.anglican.org/about/discerning-our-2030-vision/ and complete it. You aren’t asked to give any specific personal details and it’s an opportunity to be frank about the church and say what direction you think it should go.

    The Bulletin

    The May edition has now been posted on the website. Do have a look at the Hampden Gurney School Confirmation.

    I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

    Yours in Christ

    Baptism of Ava Yap-Woolford

    Ava was baptized this afternoon with a congregation drawn from far and wide. So, Jack now has a baby sister to look after!

    Fr Gerald's Weekly Email

    This Sunday (9 June)

    … is Pentecost.

    The word Pentecost derives from the Greek word for ‘fifty’. 50 days after Passover, Jews celebrate Shavuot (the Feast of Weeks) commemorating both the giving of the Ten Commandments to Moses and the wheat harvest. For Jews, Shavuot is about flourishing both spiritually and materially.

    Christianity adds a further dimension. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit on this day after the resurrection marked a new departure. Human flourishing isn’t confined to one race with one language. It’s for all.

    The Old Testament story of the Tower of Babel is tuned on its head. No longer are different languages a sign of confusion. God communicates with us all at our deepest level.

    We don’t have a musician available for the Sunday School so everyone, please sing up! Thanks.

    Last Week

    We had a double feast at the Community Dinner on Tuesday. The Marriott did as proud with food and drink. Many thanks to Stephanie Segoura, the hotel’s GM and her team. And Thomas Vester gave us a feast from his experience working as a fund manager and charity organizer across the continent of Africa.

    Many thanks to everyone who supported the event especially Steve Phillips and his team who put together the layout for the evening and to Nete Vester for the flower arrangements.

    I had a little taste of heaven on Thursday. I had come from a difficult meeting in the afternoon. Going down into Tottenham Court Road tune station, a man sat down at a piano in the ticket hall. Amidst all of the hustle and bustle, he played a simple and beautiful Bach prelude. People stopped and listened. London can be a soulless place. But it needn’t be if we listen out.

    Please continue to pray

    … for Michele Lyons. She is now conscious and able to communicate. May she make a speedy recovery and soon be home from hospital.

    This Week

    This evening at 6.30pm: Westminster Ecumenical Pentecost Service at St Martin-in-the-Fields. The service includes Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir and the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields reflecting on Pentecost through traditional choral, and gospel music. All welcome.

    Children’s Choir on Tuesday, 3.34pm in church.

    A Capella Music Group on Thursday, 9.30am in church.

    Looking Ahead

    Informal Prayer with Taizé music on Wednesday 19 June, 7.00pm in church. All welcome. Wine & cheese follows.
