    This Sunday (18 August)

    … is the Ninth Sunday after Trinity.

    The gospel is an uncompromising blast from Jesus about reading the signs of the times. We see a cloud in the sky and we know that it’s going to rain. So, why don’t we see the ‘clouds’ on other horizons and take the appropriate action?

    On the face of it, the divisions that Jesus talks about seem very harsh. Why would he want to pit members of the same family against each other? But the hype is to bring home the tough choices that we have to make in order to realise (make real) what God wants in the world.

    Jesus was no lofty theorist. The cross makes clear that he knew the cost of hard decisions and was prepared to pay the ultimate price. Divine courage is in short supply but ever more necessary in a world that seems to be on the brink of some serious shifts in power.

    Vincent Forestier is checking-in the children's attendance on Sunday.

    Please continue to pray especially for

    … Sandeep, Anika and Samara and all of Priya Dhingra’s family and friends as they mourn Priya’s death.

    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.

    Both posts are being advertised on the Diocese of London website.

    Looking Ahead

    ‘Christians In Media’ is to host a first annual church service. The Bishop-Designate of Dover Rev Rose Hudson-Wilkin and the Rt Rev Dr Graham Tomlin, the Bishop of Kensington, will be taking part in the first ever service for Christians working in the media industry on Thursday 10 October at All Souls, Langham Place. Doors open at 6.15pm with refreshments and canapés upon arrival. The service will begin at 7pm and is expected to end no later than 8.30pm. Tea, coffee will be served after the service finishes. The service is a free event and registration is open now via Eventbrite to RSVP.

    ‘The Quality of Mercy’ is the title of a lecture series being given in St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in Trafalgar Square during the autumn starting on Wednesday 11 September. Speakers and participants are drawn from a wide range of well-known people from within the Church and the arts including the actors Juliet Stephenson and Simon Russell Beale. There are fliers at the back of the church and there’s more information at www.smitf.org

    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

    This Sunday (11 August)

    … is the Eighth Sunday after Trinity.

    The gospel once again brings home the importance of having our sights set not on the material things that pass away but the more nuanced and spiritual world that is eternal. They keyword is ‘watchfulness’. It’s not a million miles from the notion of ‘mindfulness’ that’s enjoying considerable vogue at the moment.

    Sunday afternoon

    … Margaret Gold, Arjan van Bussel and Isabel invite friends to join them for a bring & share picnic in Portman Square from 2.30pm onwards. They’ve been very much part of the Annunciation community for many years with Margaret a regular member of the Sunday School team. We’ve always enjoyed the visits made by Margaret’s mother from Canada.

    The weather forecast isn’t great for this weekend, so Plan B is to have the picnic in church.

    Margaret & Co are relocating to Leiden in The Netherlands to begin a new chapter in life. Thank you, Margaret, Arjan and Isabel for all that you have given to the Annunciation in the time that you have been here, and we wish you every happiness and prosperity in the future.

    Please continue to pray especially for

    … Sandeep, Anika and Samara and all of Priya Dhingra’s family and friends as they mourn Priya’s death.

    This Week

    … sees the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Thursday 15 August. There’s a High Mass & Procession at All Saints Margaret Street starting at 6.30pm.

    People who go on holiday to catholic countries often remark on how moved and impressed they are by church street processions, but they do happen here so if you’re in London please come along on Thursday and be part of the church’s witness in the West End.

    Looking Ahead

    Pilgrimage to Armenia in 12-21 May 2020. Price: £1675 per person in a single room. Booking for this is now closed. 27 people from four churches (The Annunciation, St Cyprian’s, All Saints Margaret St & All Saints Notting Hill) are going. Over the next few weeks if anyone really feels that they’d like to come please get in touch.

    This Sunday (4 August)

    … is the Seventh Sunday after Trinity.

    The Gospel implores us to put first things first. Jesus uses the idea of a farmer who had some good years, built barns and became complacent. It’s a salutary reminder to take nothing for granted.

    Ken Goldsbrough is noting the children's attendance on Sunday.

    Please pray especially for

    … Sandeep, Anika and Samara and all of Priya Dhingra’s family and friends as they mourn her death. I’ve been sent a photo of the packed church in Vellore, Southern India where her funeral was held yesterday. It looks like it was a fitting tribute to a wonderful woman whose life has been tragically cut short.

    Times like this can throw us all off balance. It’s good to talk and my door is always open.
