A message from Reverend Katharine Rumens
As we say to one another, these are strange times and we are having to find a new pattern of living and praying together. The Archbishops have directed that all
churches are to be shut for a season. This does not mean that prayer will cease as we develop new ways to pray together.
Please look out for your neighbour. Thank you to those who have volunteered to do shopping and errands for the socially isolated. Let me know if you need help and the churchwardens and I will ask someone to be in touch with you.
Finally, we know there is an unprecedented demand on food banks at the moment. We have been asked not to hold a collection outside Waitrose. Instead please put donations of food and toiletries in the box by the checkout or make an online donation to www.hackneyfoodbank.org.uk
At this time
Meeting on the first Thursday of the month have been cancelled for the time being.
Installation of new lighting
The new lighting system cannot completed for the time being because of a delay in the delivery of light fittings from Italy and the closure of the church.
