Commemoration Of The Faithful Departed

There will be a special service of Evening Prayer at 6.30pm on Sunday 17 November.  As in previous years, we will invite to this service those families for whom we have taken funerals in recent years.  We will also commemorate by name those people that members of the congregation ask us to include (i.e. those who are usually commemorated at the All Souls’ Requiem, which we haven’t held this year because of it being on a Saturday evening).  There is a list in the Ambulatory where you can add names.  Please write them very clearly, so that we can transcribe them correctly.

Bible Study and other learning opportunities – Autumn 2019-Spring 2020

Please feel free to contact the clergy, should you wish to attend any of the following:

Introduction to Christianity

We will be running an Alpha Course in the New Year, with eleven weekly sessions, starting in the week beginning 3 February 2020, and meeting in the Vicarage on dates and at times to be agreed with the intending participants. There will be a concluding Saturday awayday on 22 May. The course is an introduction to the Christian faith. It will be run in a St John’s Wood Church sort of way, setting the course materials in the context of the teaching and practice of the Church of England, and with plenty of opportunity for discussion.  Places are limited, so priority will be given to enquirers and those who are new to the Christian faith.  If you are interested, please contact either of the clergy.

 

A guided tour of Hell

led by The Revd Dr Anders Bergquist

Sunday afternoons, at 4.30pm (tea) for 4.45pm, in the Church Hall next to the church.

Following the interest sparked by his readings from Dante’s Purgatory (during Lent) and Paradise (during Easter), the Vicar will complete the series by going back to the first of the three parts of the Divine Comedy.

17 November: Ulysses (Canto 26)
24 November: Satan (Canto 34)
