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

 

Thursday 4 June 13.00 to 13.30 Private Prayer and Reflection 

Instead of meeting in church we wil continue to pray together from 13.00-13.30 on the first Thursday of the month.  It remains a set time to pray for our community and the wider world, knowing that others are praying with us. Our silent prayers conclude at 13.30 with all saying the Lord's Prayer. See the Services page for our monthly biblical text from the lectionary and suggestions for prayer. 

 

Cleaning Angels

The monthly sessions 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.
