FaithWorks 18: Summer in the Square Returns: St Mary’s is hard at work in the planning stages of bringing back this popular local event in Battersea Square on 15th September. If you want to find out more about it, there will be a presentation in the morning services next Sunday, given by Simon and Jazz Wilson, and free cupcakes to anyone who would like to stay to find out how to get more involved after the 11am service.

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.


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!


Lost property: Please check the lost property box at the back of church near the coffee table. Anything unclaimed after today will be given to a charity shop.


Brian Moynahan: There will be a memorial service for Brian at St Mary’s on Thursday 17th May at 3.30pm


Concert: Mumbai StopGap Choir: 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 (BangaloreRural Education and Development Society). A great way to spend Pentecost evening.


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]
