This Week’s Notices


Concert: Mumbai StopGap Choir – TODAY: There will be a special performance – from Bollywood to Beethoven – by this visiting choir from India at Sacred Heart Church on Sunday 20th May at 5pm. The StopGap Choir were founded in Chennai in 1972 to fundraise for some of the poorest people who had been washed out of their homes. It is now based in Mumbai and is on a short tour to the UK. Tickets £5 in aid of Don Bosco BREADS (Bangalore Rural Education and Development Society). A great way to spend Pentecost evening.

FaithWorks 18: Pilgrimage to Passchendaele: it is now only 2 weeks to go before we go on our Pilgrimage to Passchendaele. You will be receiving a newsletter with the latest updates, and please pay the final balance of £150 by cheque or bank transfer. We have 5 spare places and if anyone wishes to come please contact David Britten 07714 618 577 or E-mail: [email protected]


FaithWorks 18: Ecumenical Pilgrimage Walk around London’s sites of Christian martyrdom will now be on Saturday 30th June (from 10am to 4pm). More details on the board at the back, including a sign-up sheet.


Welcome to Aaron & Grace Kennedy: Aaron and Grace will be moving into 298 Trinity Road SW18 on 12th June. We would like to provide them with a welcome hamper of lovely things to let them know how much we are looking forward to meeting them. Please leave things in the box at the back of church or contact Sarah Macnab ([email protected]). Deadline: Sunday 10th June.


Revd. Aaron Kennedy will be licensed as Associate Vicar for Community Development and Mission on Sunday 1st July at 11am. This will also be the occasion of Simon’s Silver Jubilee of Ordination as a Priest and so it will be a double celebration. There will be a Choral Parish Eucharist, a Haydn mass with string accompaniment. Simon will preside and Bishop Richard will preach and license Aaron. Both clergy will be inviting guests so there will be a bubbly in the Churchyard afterwards and a Bring and Share Parish Picnic Lunch. Not to be missed!


Funeral Vergers: We have a small team of vergers who help out at funerals with welcoming mourners on an ad hoc basis. If you would be willing to join in or to find out more, please have a word with David Britten 07714 618 577 or E-mail: [email protected]


Open Church: As usual we are planning to keep the church open on Sunday afternoons throughout the summer.  Please sign up on the sheet at the back of church if you can help.  Thank you.  Libby Bradshaw
