Prepare the way of the Lord!

The Sound of Silence - We will focus especially over this Advent on trying to ensure a period of prayerful preparation before Mass, especially in the fifteen minutes before the main Sunday 1030am Mass. Advent is a great time for everyone – clergy and laity! – to be reminded of the power and importance of silence to prepare to meet God in prayer and worship.


Open to the Community - This is the time of year when we welcome the greatest number of visitors to the church, so we need as many people as possible to help with stewarding, welcoming & refreshments: please speak to Fr Thomas or the Churchwardens if you can offer help.


Bible & Bacon – Saturdays after the 1030am Mass. Starting in Advent, this will be a chance to prayerfully read and reflect on the scriptures together over coffee and a bacon roll. All are welcome to join.


Parish visit to All Saints Margaret Street - On Sunday 10th December there is the chance for us to travel as a group to Evensong & Benediction at All Saints Margaret Street, a beacon of Anglo-Catholic worship in the centre of London famous for its beauty, its liturgy and its choir. Details tbc, but we will leave c.3pm on the train together. The parish has very generously offered us hospitality after the service. Please speak to Fr Thomas or sign-up at the back of church if you’d like to join us.
