Vicar's Update

Tuesday 20th September 2022

It was a joy to welcome our friends from LAMB (one of our mission partners) to mark Climate Sunday last weekend.  At 10.30 Rosemary Croft spoke to us about the horrific effects of climate change in Bangladesh which threatens to displace millions of people and the important work that LAMB is involved in there.  You can catch up here.  

Also on Sunday we heard Monika and Jason Scott share their experiences of taking part in Alpha and the effect that it has had on their lives - you can hear this at about 36mins from the start of the recording.  Alpha begins on 28th September and will be in person at church on Wednesday evenings starting at 8pm with homemade cakes. Do invite your family, friends and neighbours – all are welcome.   

Next Sunday (25th) is the Ealing Half Marathon.  Because the roads around our church will be closed to traffic there will be no morning services.  Instead you are welcome to join us in the church car park as we hear the UFO Steel band and share tea/coffee with those who are watching the runners.  A short Evening Communion service will be held in Church at 6pm. 

The following Sunday (2nd October) we will mark Harvest with a collection of food gifts and/or money to the Ealing Foodbank (no fresh produce please).  You can check out the latest Foodbank needs here.  Also on that day, the Big Green Fair will take place at church from 12.30pm to 3.30pm. Do come and invite friends and families too.  If you are able to help on the day in serving refreshments and wiith other activities – please contact Sue Charlton (sacharlton@btinternet.com).   

Finally on Wednesday 5th October our Prayer Ministry Team are meeting for an evening of encouragement and being prayed for.  We are looking forward to teaching from our curate Ruth and being joined by a team from the Oak Tree Anglican Fellowship.  We are opening the evening to others not on the Ministry Team so if you would like to come along just for the evening, please do let me know.

I hope you have a good week.
