St Mary’s Fair: This year’s Show and Fete is on Saturday 16th September from noon until 4 pm. We are now collecting items for the stalls and are looking for bottles, gifts, books, toys and bric-a-brac in good condition. Please put your items up in the gallery. No Electrical items! Also please sign up at the sheet at the back to help on a stall.

We are also holding a children’s art competition on the day and are keen to get posters and flyers out. The theme of the competition is ‘My view of Battersea.


Shoe Boxes: Junior Church needs lots of empty shoe boxes to store things in. If you have any, please would you leave them at the back of the church (right hand side on the pews as you come up the steps). We thought there might be quite a few around towards the end of the summer as people buy new school shoes! Many thanks.


A sponsored Sleepout for Glass Door on Friday 6th October at Duke of York Square in Chelsea. If you would be interested in taking part, perhaps as a family group, more details soon. Last year more than 300 people slept out, raising over £145,000 to support local homeless people.

Everyone 2018: are you a ‘completer-finisher’? Our annual renewal of stewardship process will take place again this autumn, led by Matthew Guest. Pledge Sunday will be 29th October 2018 when each of us will be asked to make a pledge towards our financial needs in the coming year. Matthew is keen to have someone assist him, who is particularly good at finishing things off, who likes the detail and who can ensure that we follow up to make sure that those who pledge are advised and helped where necessary. Please contact Matthew at [email protected] or have a word with Simon
