The rota for providing church lunches from September to the end of the year is now on the board behind the tea counter. Please do think again about whether you can help in the provision of this greatly valued service for members and visitors alike. There will lunches on 3,10 and 17 September (assuming that someone volunteers to provide them), but not on 24 September and 1 October, as the work to deal with the leaking kitchen ceiling starts on 18 September.
Borderline has been selected, along with two other homelessness charities, to participate in this year’s CEO Sleepout. Shona Fleming, CEO, has already signed up to sleep out for one night on Monday 30 October at Lord’s Cricket Ground, and the charity is looking for at least ten other people to volunteer to join her.
Shona and Samantha Evans, Fundraising Officer, will attend the morning service on Sunday 17 September with further details, and will be hoping to recruit volunteers.
On Wednesday 13 September at 6.30 pm St Martin-in-the-Fields hosts a Churches Together in Westminster Reformation 500 event, with St Anne’s Lutheran Church London and Rev Eliza Zikmane, focusing on Luther’s legacy to Christian Education through the Small Catechism. All are welcome. And at 12 noon on Tuesday 31 October there is a service at Westminster Abbey, led by the Dean, with an address by the Archbishop of Canterbury. For free tickets, see http://www.westminster-abbey.org/worship/reformation. This will be followed by a symposium, Liberated by God’s grace: 1517 – 2017: 500 Years of Reformation, from 2.30 to 5 pm in St Margaret’s Church.
