Week beginning Sunday 21st January 2018

Church Desk surgery

We have benefitted greatly from the period of using a ‘hard rota’ in church which has meant that quite a number of new people have come forward to help. However, we are planning to return our rota to Church Desk gradually. Today and next Sunday 28th January David and Mthr Anna will be in church with a computer and can assign you to duties on the rota so that we can construct a new rota for February and March.

Candlelit Quiet

This week we will continue our focus on contemplative prayer, with a quiet drop-in service on Friday evening at 6.30pm in St Mary’s Church Tower. The service will incorporate personal prayer and a short service of Compline and will provide an opportunity for quiet at the end of the working week.

A FoodBank rest as our reward
St Mary’s giving of food has been spectacular and has been reported in the Parish News variously and continuously. In fact, together with others, our giving has placed the Holy Trinity FoodBank in a position where it has reserves and so…We’ve been asked if we would like to take a rest temporarily with humble thanks from the Foodbank!!  They will let us know what the news is and when the need comes through next, they will tell us, (and being as we are, we’ll probably be able to help them again).
Well done all ranks!! Fr Dennis

Box opening for the Children’s Society is on Saturday, 27th January from 10.30 to 12noon, in the Church Room. We shall also have our usual Bring and Buy stall and this money will be given to the Church.

We will be joined by representatives from Besom, YMCA, Winter Night Shelter and Holy Trinity Food Bank. Please join us if you can.​

Candlemas Rehearsal & Workshop

On Sunday the 4th February we are celebrating Candlemas by having an All-age service. We are planning on having the service as an explanatory Eucharist, with children serving and doing the explaining. In order to be able to do this we are having rehearsals and a workshop the day before, Saturday 3rd February in the Church from 10am-2pm. We very much encourage children to attend on this day. If you have any questions please ask Mthr Anna, David or Nina.

Day trip to St Albans Abbey

Please do save the date in your diaries!

Palm Crosses

If you have any Palm Crosses could you please bring them to Church and give them to Pam. Thank you.


Besom is a charity that aims to provide furniture to those in need. It currently runs mainly out of St James Church, Muswell Hill. At the moment we have a bit of a backlog and are in need of some help in moving some furniture to East Haringey. We operate a rota and need some volunteers for a Saturday morning van run 9.00 till 12.00. Just Once would really help us. If you are willing to help out then please contact Sue Jameson:
