This event will be held in Trafalgar Square from 12 noon until 6 pm on Sunday 9 June. There will be live music, and a service from 4 pm – 6 pm featuring leaders from many denominations, including Archbishop Justin Welby. Further details are available on their website.
On Saturday 8 June at 7.30 pm Audrey McNair, one of our elders, is holding a quiz to raise money for MND and the Great Wall of China Walk which she is doing in September. If you would like to support Audrey in this venture, do come along and join in the quiz. Please bring your own wine or soft drinks. There will be tables of up to 6 people, but these can be made up on the night.
This service is being held to remember and give thanks for those friends, family and loved ones who have been part of our lives but are now no longer with us.
During the service we will remember each by name and give thanks for all that made them special. If you would like to include any family member, friend or loved one please give names to the church secretary. There will also be an opportunity to view the Book of Remembrance kept at the back of the church, and to arrange for an entry to be made if desired.
After the service light refreshments will be served in the church hall, for which all are welcome to join us.
During June, July and August, we try to open the church
to visitors between 12 noon and 3 pm on Tuesdays and
Wednesdays. In order to keep the church open, we need
to have at least two volunteers on duty every day. If you
are able to spare some time to help with this venture,
please speak to Margaret Ross.
Christian Aid Week is fast approaching, and Crown Court will once again be collecting at London Tube and railway stations: on Thursday 16 May at Charing Cross and Embankment tube stations and on Friday 17 May at Liverpool Street mainline station, along with Liverpool Street and/or Bank tube stations. All who wish to join the collecting team will be welcome, for as much or as little time as you can spare between 7 am and 9.30 am, and/or 4.30 pm and 7 pm.
No special expertise is required, and collecting buckets and tabards are provided for free! For more details contact the Christian Aid Convener, Andy Tait, on 07769 642421, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up on the sheet on the notice board in the hall.
This year we will be participating in a trial of cashless collecting methods. It will be very interesting to see whether this new method will result in more money being collected than the traditional cash in the bucket method.
