    This Sunday (17 June)

    … is the Third Sunday after Trinity. Last Sunday I said that the liturgical colour was green once again – the colour of growth. This Sunday’s gospel is full of agricultural images that look ahead not just to flourishing but to harvesting as well.

    News

    Last Saturday’s street party raised £605 for the heating appeal. Thanks so much to Thomas & Nete Vester for organizing it, their team of helpers and everyone who supported it.

    On Thursday Evan Williams spoke at the parish dinner about his latest documentary on the plight of the Rohingya people. It was a personal and powerful evening. There’s some energy to have more of these events and I’m happy to encourage them. Percy Smend will be the next speaker who will talk about his family’s opposition to the rise of Nazism in Germany. Lessons from history are particularly pertinent at the moment.

    Jasmine Cullingford has made an enormous contribution to Sunday School in recent years. In fact, she’s so good at it that she’s been head-hunted by Stepney Parish Church. So, as we’ll be seeing a lot less of Jasmine in the future it’s time for others to step up to the plate in Sunday School.

    This Week

    Tuesday, 9.30am A Capella Coffee in church led by Miles Ashdown

    Tuesday 3.45pm Children’s Choir rehearsal in church.

    Next Sunday (24 June)

    Both Martin and Steve are away so we don’t have a music maestro in the Sunday School. I’d like a volunteer please if either you have hidden banjo talents or you’ve got a big singing voice. Please let me know. Thank you.

    Resources for Parents

    Yours in Christ

    As you know we’ve been plagued in recent weeks by falling plaster. Remedial works have been carried out and we can now use the church more than we could. There are two areas to avoid however. They are marked. One is at the front of the nave near where the servers sit and the other is at the west end of the aisle where a scaffolding tower is being stored. Please keep children away from these. Thank you.

    Saturday (9 June), 3.00pm is the Vester’s street party in Great Cumberland Mews in aid of church funds. Please do go along and support the event.

    This Sunday (10 June)

    … is the Second Sunday after Trinity. We’re finally back in to green vestments – the colour of healthy growth. Unfortunately, we’re also back to Mark’s Gospel and his endless stories of people plagued by unclean spirits. Its significant however that the gospel ends with Jesus being interrupted. The outcome is what he says about peoples’ relationships. We are each other’s kin if God is the centre of our lives.

    News

    Baby Maxime Durell continues to be unwell. Marcus and Gwen are concerned about infections so the family is laying low for a bit. I've asked them to let us know if there is anyway that they would like us to support them. Please continue to remember the Durells un your prayers. Thank you.

    And there’s another new arrival: Rafi Damluji came to church last Sunday – Hassan and Anna’s son who was born at the end of February. He slept through the whole service!

    This Week

    Tuesday, 9.30am A Capella Coffee in church led by Miles Ashdown

    Tuesday 3.45pm Children’s Choir rehearsal in church.

    Wednesday 7.00pm Informal Prayer Group either at 4 Wyndham Place. For more information contact Vincent Forestier vforestier@gmail.com.

    Thursday, 7.30pm Community Dinner with filmmaker, Evan Williams in church. £20 payable on the night in cash or by cheque, please. Do let me know that you’re coming so that catering can be arranged. Thank you.

    Resources for Parents

    Priya Dhingra’s Ed Psyche Practice is running a course in conjunction with Mrs Wordsmith on developing creative thinking and writing.

    This Sunday (3 June)

    … is Corpus Christi Sunday. Last Sunday we declared Christianity’s unique revelation of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This Sunday we celebrate the presence of this inestimable mystery being placed in our hands. The Church is the Body of Christ. We see and taste this every time we make our communion.

    Please arrive on time and ask your children not to play games while they are at church – especially no football downstairs please.

    Gavin is away on Sunday so Sherry is kindly taking a note of the children’s attendance.

    Last Week

    Builders took down the plaster that was at risk of falling so once the clean-up has been completed we’ll be back to business as usual albeit the church won’t be looking its best for quite a while. Its perhaps fortunate that we’ve had some bad weather these past few days because the contractors were able to go on to the roof during the heavy rain. This showed that the gutters and downpipes on the north side of the church aren’t fit for purpose. Water not only goes down the pipes but also sprays out of holes due to their great age. Rainwater also spills over the gutters during a downpour saturating the walls. This is the cause of the damp that led to the plaster coming loose. The Parochial Church Council will work with the architect on what the best immediate and long-term solutions will be.

    On a happier note we celebrated Julia and Vincent’s marriage on 1 June in style at St Cyprian’s. It was wonderful to see them looking so happy.

    This Week

    Tuesday, 9.30am A Capella Coffee in church led by Miles Ashdown

    Tuesday 3.45pm Children’s Choir rehearsal in church.

    Looking Ahead

    Wednesday 13 June 7.00pm Informal Prayer Group either at 4 Wyndham Place. For more information contact Vincent Forestier vforestier@gmail.com.

    Thursday 14 June, 7.30pm Community Dinner with filmmaker, Evan Williams in church.
