Vicar's update 25th MaySteve Newbold1

Thank you to those who are giving to the work of the Ealing Foodbank and/or The Grove run Relief Centre.  Another way to support those in need at this time is through Educare Family Support Service run by  Naomi Rattray. They are working with around eight local primary schools, children’s centres and taking referrals from social care to support vulnerable families with packs of essentials.  If you could make a donation towards the cost of these please click here
 
The Church Council met last week.  One of the difficult but not surprising decisions we made was to formally cancel the Community Fete planned for September.  Hopefully we can hold it in 2021 but at this stage so much remains uncertain.
 
This week we continue the season called Thy Kingdom Come so do join for our online services and activities when you can: 

  •          Tuesday 26th, Morning Prayer on Zoom at 9am.
  •          Wednesday 27th Night Prayer on Facebook  at 9pm (new liturgy attached)
  •          Thursday 28th Morning Prayer on Zoom at 9am.
  •          Friday 29th Quiz Night on Zoom at 7.30pm – details to follow
  •          Saturday 30th Worship Online on Facebook at 4pm
  •          All week – Prayer Walk either in person or online (details on the Church Website) 

Some key times this week are:

  1. Tuesday (26th) Shining Stars online at 11am on Facebook
  2. Wednesday (27th) our weekly day of prayer and fasting against the Coronavirus continues and ends with Night Prayer at 9pm  - live on the St Stephen’s Facebook page. 
  3. Saturday (30th) at 4pm worship online – join us on Facebook for live worship, as we sing “Your kingdom come” over the people and situations we are praying for. Finally, do remember to join us on Sunday (31st) at 11am for St Stephen’s Online when we will be celebrating the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.  The service is followed by a Zoom Café catch up.  The zoom details are the same each week, please read your vicar's update email for the log in details.

Take care, keep well and enjoy the sunny bank holiday.
