    This Sunday (19 August)

    … is the Twelfth Sunday after Trinity.

    The gospel continues the theme of the last three Sundays: Jesus, the bread of life. The Mass, Eucharist, Holy Communion, the Lord’s Supper – call it what you will – has been the physical thread that has bound the church together for 2000 years. Its built upon the Jewish tradition of the Passover so its lineage goes back before recorded history.

    So, what we do Sunday by Sunday and throughout the week – the simple task of taking and bread and wine, offering our thanks and sharing it among us – binds us to each other and to God’s world in a profound sign of solidarity.

    As we plan for fewer children in church during the school holidays there are no sessions for children who are 8+ now until September. So, it is important that the older children stay upstairs. Please keep these children with you and encourage them to join in with the prayers and hymns. Please make sure that they do not go downstairs and play around.

    Also, it is important that people stay seated until the end of the voluntary so those organizing refreshments can do so without risking injury by spilling things. Thank you.

    Building Works

    The works in the crypt mean that all sorts of items are being stored temporarily in the church especially the choir stalls so please keep a close watch on your children and make sure that they don’t tamper with the various boxes and bags that are stacked there. It looks unsightly but once the new storage has been fitted items will be placed out of sight again.

    There is no baby-changing mat downstairs at the moment. It has been taken down so that an additional toilet can be installed in that corner.

    The church will be dustier than usual for the next few weeks. Our cleaner is now coming in on Saturday afternoons but it won’t be possible for the church to be pristine until everything is finished around the end of October so please bear with us.

    Heating

    More donations needed please for the heating system. BACS transfers can be made to: The Church of the Annunciation 40-05-29 / 91372858. Please give generously. If you are a UK tax-payer then signing a gift aid form will increase the value of your donation by 25%. You can download a gift aid form from https://www.annunciationmarblearch.org.uk/donate/giftaid

    Coming Up

    The Children’s Choir will start again on Tuesday 11 September, 3.45pm in church. Please contact me if your child is interested in joining.

    St Cyprian’s Day, Saturday 15 September. High Mass at 12.00 noon. Celebrant & Preacher: The Rt Revd Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London. There’s a reception after mass. All welcome.

    The A Capella Coffee group starts again on Tuesday 18 September, 9.30am in church. An hour of fun and a chance to sing with Miles D’Cruz. £8 per session payable to Miles on the day.

    Quiz Night at St Cyprian’s Clarence Gate on Friday 28 September, 7.30pm. If you would like to create a team of six please contact me. Entrance £10 each payable on the night. Wine & sandwiches included.

    The Feast of the Annunciation, Monday 25 March 2019. 7.30pm High Mass & Procession. Celebrant & Preacher: The Rt Revd & Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London. This will be a really important day in the life of the parish so please put in your 2019 diaries.

    I look forward to being with you on Sunday.

    Yours in Christ

    Greetings

    … from a ferry sailing from Tallinn to Helsinki. I’m almost at the end of a week’s vacation in the Baltic. One of the highlights has been a visit to Tartu, Estonia’s intellectual and spiritual capital. The university sprawls across beautiful parkland.

    This year is the centenary of Estonia becoming a republic although for most of the century it functioned as vassal state under one or other emerging power. Since gaining its independence from soviet control in 1991 however the country has made amazing strides joining both the EU and NATO.

    The news from the UK is concerning. Boris Johnson’s remarks about the burka are rude and uncivilized. He’s playing with fire. As Christians who live alongside Muslims of many different traditions in and around Marble Arch we are called to douse the flames of division. Whatever our opinion of other people’s cultures or clothing, debate should be conducted with courtesy.

    This Sunday (12 August)

    … is the Eleventh Sunday after Trinity.

    The gospel continues the theme of the last two Sundays: Jesus, the bread of life. As people who regularly make our communion we are to feed others with life-giving words and deeds.

    St Paul spells this out as he tells the Ephesians: “Do not let the sun go down on your wrath’. Anger is ruinous. Tempers should cool on the evening breeze.

    As we plan for fewer children in church during the school holidays there are no sessions for children who are 8+ now until September. So, it is important that the older children stay upstairs. Please keep these children with you and encourage them to join in with the prayers and hymns. Please make sure that they do not go downstairs and play around.

    Also, it is important that people stay seated until the end of the voluntary so those organizing refreshments can do so without risking injury by spilling things. Thank you.

    This Sunday (5 August)

    … is the Tenth Sunday after Trinity.

    Following on from the Feeding of the 5000 last Sunday, this Sunday and for the remainder of August the gospel readings come from St John’s lengthy meditation on the relationship between Jesus and bread.

    This Sunday, the discourse is around the manna in the wilderness – the way in which God sustained his ancient people on their wanderings away from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the Promised Land.

    To be famished is to understand our limitations. When we understand that we are not all-powerful is the point at which a profound encounter with God can begin.

    As we plan for fewer children in church during the school holidays there are no sessions for children who are 8+ now until September. So, it is important that the older children stay upstairs. Please keep these children with you and encourage them to join in with the prayers and hymns. They must not go downstairs and play around.
