    Sunday (27 September)…

    is the Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity. We welcome back the Ven Adam Atkinson, who since his last visit has become the Archdeacon of Charing Cross, to lead us in worship.

    This week marked the sixth month since the start of lockdown, and many of you, like myself, might be losing the will to continue under restrictions, or the will to work from home, especially if you have only just recently been given back the freedom to return to the office! In this week’s reading from Philippians, Paul reminds us that “it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure”. Therefore let us not rely on ourselves but instead continue to trust and rely on God. As He has got us through the last six months, keeping our community safe and connected despite being apart, it is He who will also get us through the next six months ahead, whatever they may bring.

    WORSHIP

    Virtual prayer group: Wednesday 30 September 7pm

    CHILDREN & YOUTH

    Registration of church attendance will be taken on Sunday, but unfortunately there will be no live Sunday School until further notice, due to the numbers involved and COVID restrictions. If you have questions concerning Hampden Gurney School admissions, please contact the school directly as the decision on criteria for this year rests with them.

    Sunday School for 8+ young people will continue to be broadcast on our Facebook and YouTube pages. There is also a dedicated youth website https://annunciationyouth.wixsite.com/annunication

    I’m not sure how many people we will be able to see this Christmas, but I’m sure we will still be able to send and receive cards at least! Do consider buying yours from Christian charities such as these:

    Sunday (20 September)…

    is the Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity. We welcome back the Reverend Clare Dowding, Rector of St Paul’s, Marylebone, and Acting Area Dean of Marylebone, who will be leading us on Sunday. In this week’s reading, Paul writes of the Philippians’ ‘“joy in faith” and indeed Steve tells me that as he announced, “We are back!” at Sunday’s first Mass since lockdown, there was a resounding cheer! Yet the road ahead continues to be full of uncertainties, with the virus still among us, the colder season approaching and the possible threat of future restrictions. But let us persist in holding on to our faithful God. Paul reminds us that faith is a privilege that God “has graciously granted you”. It keeps us strong and hopeful during tough times. With the words of the Collect, I pray that as we have done over the past few difficult months, we may continue to “be found steadfast in faith”.

    Sunday (13 September)…

    is the Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity. In this week’s reading of Romans, Paul states, ‘For it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God”’. Many of you have no doubt been doing this at home over the past few months, but I’m sure you have all been looking forward to the day when you can do this communally again (and with kneelers!). Our post communion prayer asks that we may be ‘united in prayer and the breaking of bread’ and finally I have the news that I’m sure you’ve all been waiting to hear… We are ready for public worship once again from this Sunday! We are very grateful that Fr Luke Miller, Archdeacon of London, will be leading us for our first Mass in almost six months. It will unfortunately be some time before we can resume ‘business as normal’ - alas there will be no Sunday School and everyone will need to wear masks and socially distance - but we thank all those who have agreed to come in at short notice to keep it as recognisable as possible: the servers and the musicians will all be on duty, as well as Gavin taking children’s attendance at the door :)

    WORSHIP

    Parish Mass: Sunday 13th September 10.30am. Social distancing will be in place and please note that face coverings are now mandatory in church. Please follow the new guidance of the sidespeople.

    Our virtual prayer group will continue to meet online: Wednesday 16 September 7pm. An e-mail will be sent with the Zoom details and anyone is welcome to join in any week.

    Sunday (6 September)…

    is the Thirteenth Sunday after Trinity. Autumn is upon us already, which is usually preceded by a sigh as we say goodbye to summer and usher in shorter days and cooler weather. Yet this year, September is starting with a renewed sense of hope, with schools back and businesses reopening their shutters. Indeed our church wardens, Helen and Steve, have been very busy behind the scenes, paving the way to reopen for mass (watch this space!), and we actually have a small wedding taking place this week - always a joyous occasion to fill one with optimism! Until we are ready for public worship, do join us for virtual prayers on Wednesdays at 7pm which are restarting this week, and/or private prayer in church on Sundays 11am-12pm. For as Christ says in this week’s Gospel reading, “where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them”. Come and feel Jesus’ powerful presence (and practise your Sunday routine again before it starts in earnest…!).

    WORSHIP

    The text of the readings is available on our website for each Sunday.

    We are open for private prayer on Sundays 11am-12pm. Please note that face coverings are mandatory in church.

    Our virtual prayer group is back after its summer break. It is led by Ramond Mitchell with Steve Phillips on guitar and next meets on Wednesday 9 September 7pm. An e-mail will be sent with the Zoom details and anyone is welcome to join in any week.

These services will continue to be live-streamed to those unable to attend in person https://asms.uk https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCz5geWECwF4qOnv2IGFd7vQ

    St Cyprians Clarence Gate has Sunday Parish Mass in church at 10.30am (also streamed on Zoom for those unable to attend) plus Low Mass in church on Wednesdays at 12pm.
