New Furniture for St Giles’ Appeal

The time has come for us to provide new furniture for our beautiful church. We have chosen stackable benches 

 

and matching chairs with arms for those who need more support. 

 

A dedication plaque on the bench or chair will record your gift. We do hope that you are able to support this appeal.  Thank you

If you would like to commemorate a significant event or join with us in caring for the church in the heart of the Barbican, please make a donation. £1,000 will provide a bench and £500 a chair. All donations gratefully received.

A message from Reverend Katharine Rumens

Dear Friends,
 

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
With prayers

Katharine
