Rector's Jottings (No. 48/2020)
Welcome to this week’s Jottings, which is about things happening at Hornsey Parish Church for Advent and our December Virtual Christmas Market
Virtual Christmas Market
Baking can be Mission too….
“Stir us up O Lord…” These words from one of last Sunday’s prayers are surely enough to inspire budding bakers and cooks among you to help make Christmas cakes and puddings to sell in support of Hornsey Parish Church, and our work in the community, as part of our Virtual Christmas Market.
We need cooks who can follow our special recipes. Don’t worry, instructions will be given, and reimbursement for the cost of ingredients is available. We will open the Market, orders will be placed, and that’s when the baking mission starts.
We will be making mincemeat, jams and preserves too These will also be to order.
Alternatively, are you a budding flower arranger? Can you volunteer to help prepare some table decorations?
And shopping can be mission too. Hooray!

Advent is a season of penitence and hope, as we look forward both to the coming of Jesus at Christmas, and his coming again in glory at the end of time. It is a time of new beginnings, when many Christians focus afresh on the worship of God and service of one another.
Even though we are in lockdown, Advent will soon be in full swing at Hornsey Parish Church:
