    This Sunday (14 July)

    … is the Fourth Sunday after Trinity.

    The Gospel is one of the best known and most loved of Jesus’s parables – the Good Samaritan. Enjoy!

    The children’s choir is singing and the older children are staying upstairs so please help them to participate in the mass.

    It’s possible that the number in the children’s choir is going to be down quite a lot on Sunday because people are away. As their number is The Lord of the Dance we may all be joining in!

    This Week

    The usual groups have now stopped for the summer holidays. Look out for notices as to when they are starting again in September. Thank you.

    Looking Ahead

    Emergency evacuation drill next Sunday.

    Pilgrimage to Armenia in 12-21 May 2020. Price: £1675 per person in a single room. This is now definitely going ahead so please let me know if you might be interested. The deadline is 15 July.

    Booking the Church

    The Annunciation is increasingly being used for a wide variety of events. So, if you think that there may be something suitable that you would like to see in church, please let me know.

    Two New Posts Being Offered

    The parish is Looking for a Part-Time Administrator and a Part-Time Youth & Children’s Worker. Please let me know if you would like the details or know of someone who may be interested.

    There were no suitable applicants first time round so both posts are being re-advertised.

    St John’s Wood Parish Church Film Club

    Films are being shown at the church on Saturday 20 July, 6.30pm. For more information contact macl01050@gmail.com.

    Crisis at Christmas

    … is looking to appoint temporary staff for its programmes in December. For more information please contact Cathrine Gillard cathrine.gillard@crisis.org.uk.

    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.

    I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

    Yours in Christ

    Fr Gerald's Weekly Email

    This Sunday (30 June)

    … is the Third Sunday after Trinity.

    The minimalist and focused mindset of Jesus that was evident in last week’s gospel continues this Sunday.

    Jesus is sending out his disciples. They are to travel light - staying nimble in the affairs of the world. For those of us who easily get bogged down in a variety of issues it’s a salutary reminder to ‘look up’, not ‘look down’.

    During the mass we will be baptizing Clara Lim, Mony Lim and Anne Azzola’s daughter. It will be very good to welcome their family and friends from France.

    This Week

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

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

    Thank You Wetherby School

    I was invited to attend the Wetherby School end of year assembly yesterday.

    Each year the school fundraises for charity. This year the Annunciation is one of the beneficiaries and I was presented with a cheque for £75,000.

    This a fantastic gift and a great indication that the church is valued by the school. So, onwards and upwards in raising a great deal more to put the building in good order.

    Looking Ahead

    Emergency evacuation drill on Sunday 21 July.

    Pilgrimage to Armenia in 12-21 May 2020. Price: £1675 per person in a single room. This is now definitely going ahead so please let me know if you might be interested. The deadline is 15 July.
