    Fr Gerald's Weekly Email

    This Sunday (14 October)

    … is being kept as Harvest Thanksgiving.

    Please bring non-perishable items of food that we can pass on to the West London Day Centre. This provides invaluable help to homeless people locally. The Centre doesn’t just offer immediate necessities such as food but it also helps people to get back on their feet again.

    Adults are being invited to look round the new nursery this morning. I’ll explain how we’re going to do that at the beginning of mass.

    The children’s choir will be singing and the 8+ Group will be greeting, reading, leading the intercessions and taking the offertory. Please help all of the children who are taking part in the mass to stay focused. Thank you.

    Heating

    Although not yet fully operational the heating is now on so we should begin to see the heat level build up over the next few weeks. Thanks to everyone who donated so generously to this. There’s still a fundraising shortfall so please let me know if you would still like to contribute. Thank you.

    This Week

    The Children’s Choir rehearses on Tuesdays, 3.45pm in church. Please contact me if your child is interested in joining.

    The A Capella Coffee group is on Tuesday, 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.

    Congratulations

    … to Anne & Mony Lim on the birth of the daughter, Clara.

    Thank you

    … to everyone who helped with the Hampden Gurney Bake Sale on Thursday. The PTA raised £1800 for school funds. They had the best sausage rolls ever!

    The community dinner on Thursday evening was also an excellent event. Many thanks to Michele Lyons for organizing the wonderful dinner with Franco’s in Molyneux Street. It was good to see people there from All Saints Margaret St as well as two of our local councillors.

    Sponsors Needed Please

    Margaret Gold is running her first 5k on Saturday in the RBS Race for the Kids in Hyde Park, raising money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital. So, if you’d like to support her please go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/margaret-gold. Go Margaret!

    Chaplaincy Among Deaf & Deaf Blind People Carol Service on Friday 7 December, 6.30pm. Once again, we’ll be forming a scratch choir from the congregation and helping with refreshments so please put this date in your diary now. Thank you.

    Warning

    There may have been a phishing scam to members of the congregation using an old Annunciation email address. So, if you receive anything from vicar@annunciationmarblearch.org.uk please let me know. The gmail address is fine.

    I look forward to being with you on Sunday.

    Yours in Christ

    Fr Gerald's Weekly Email

    This Sunday (7 October)

    … is the Nineteenth Sunday after Trinity.

    Once again, challenging words from Jesus in the gospel. Over the last few Sundays he has been addressing division: division between his followers, division between various groups and on Sunday, division in that most sacred of relationships – marriage.

    I will be in Sunday School with Fr Stephen celebrating the mass and preaching.

    Next Sunday (14 October)

    … will be kept as Harvest Thanksgiving. Please bring non-perishable items of food that we can pass on to the West London Day Centre. This provides invaluable help to homeless people. The Centre doesn’t just provide immediate necessities such as food but all helps people to get back on their feet and regain control of their own lives.

    Building Works

    The works on the heating are in the final stage and it should be on for Sunday 14th. There will be some tweaking of the system over the next few weeks however and an additional radiator installed below the east window. This should address some of the condensation issues in the building.

    If you would like to make a donation, please let me know. Thank you.

    The in-going works for the Bryanston Nursery are well-advanced and they have begun marketing the business with a view to being open in January. The congregation is invited to look round the new nursery after mass on Sunday 14th October. So please come and see what has been achieved and let local people know what is on offer here. If you come please keep children under strict supervision. They won’t be able to use the nursery equipment or resources.

    This Week

    The Children’s Choir rehearses on Tuesdays, 3.45pm in church. Please contact me if your child is interested in joining.

    The A Capella Coffee group is on Tuesday, 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.

    Hampden Gurney School Cake sale on Thursday 11 October after school. For more information please contact Michele Lyons (michelebaylis@yahoo.co.uk). Cakes, donations and offers of help are all needed.

    Community Dinner on Thursday 11 October, 7.15pm for 7.30pm. Speaker: Justin Maciejewski DSO, MBE, Director of the National Army Museum, Chelsea. Justin was a serving officer before joining McKinsey. He became director of the museum earlier this year. Tickets £25 including an Italian dinner with wine. Because this event is being advertised widely you do need to buy a ticket by contacting me. Thank you.

    Just so that you know …

    The Marble Arch Partnership which is tasked with making the neighbourhood a more interesting and vibrant place to be now regularly runs ‘Silver Sunday Safaris’. These short trips enable older people to have a fun time in the locality and receive hospitality from local businesses. For more information please see https://silversunday.org.uk/organiser/marble-arch-london-bid/. Please pass on the information about this if you know of people who may benefit. Volunteers are also needed to assist. Again, please contact the Partnership if you would like to offer your help. Thank you.

    I look forward to being with you on Sunday.

    Yours in Christ
