Weekly and advance notices
Week beginning Sunday 17th September 2017

Barn Dance
Don’t forget to save the date of our Barn Dance, which is Saturday 30th September from 7.00pm. Tickets cost £10 (adults) £5 (children) £7 unwaged and £25 family (2 adults/2 children). All profits split between Winter Night Shelter and other church projects.

Welcomers & Wardens Meeting
There will be a meeting for the Welcoming Team (that is, welcomers and deputy wardens) at 12 noon today. This is a chance to discuss how things are going and consider any aspects the Welcoming Team may wish us to discuss. If you want to join this team please speak to one of the clergy.

Parish Fellowship beginning of term kick-off
The Parish Fellowship meets this coming Tuesday 19th September in the Church Room at 2.00pm. This is the ‘beginning of term’ and will be a gentle get-together. Some may prefer to call it the ‘kick-off’, depending on sporting tendencies but whichever, it will be a pleasant and productive meeting with kicking not happening!

Harvest Celebrations and Workshop
We will be celebrating and sharing God’s abundance in our Harvest service next Sunday, 24th September, when we will be collecting gifts of food and toiletries for the Food Bank, and gifts of money for the Winter Night Shelter. Please bring your offerings to the church so that we can share them with others.

Children and young people are invited a workshop the day before, to help us get ready for the harvest celebration. Please come to the Church Hall on Saturday 23rd, 10.00am-1.00pm, for craft activities & rehearsal. Talk to Naomi or Mthr Anna for more info.

Huge thanks to Lotte
For more than twelve years, Lotte Collett has lead our Youth Fellowship, and more recently our youth community outreach as Youth Development Worker. We are very grateful to her for all that she has contributed so generously in that time. There are many young people in our church whose sense of belonging to our community owes much to Lotte’s talents and great gifts in youth work.

Christmas Market
Our Christmas Market will be on Friday 24th November. This annual event (which has had different names over the years) is a great opportunity for mission and outreach, as well as being a significant source of income to support our life. The Market was a great success again last year thanks to many of you who formed a team to help make it happen. Let us know if you want to join the team.

Hyacinths
If you are reluctant to part with the beautiful bowls we gave you last year when you purchased hyacinths at the Bazaar would you like us to replant them this year? We are willing to do this and look after them until they will be returned to you at this year’s event. They need to be planted up before the end of September and, for a limited period, there is a choice of colour. Please see Pam, Wendy or Joan if you would like to do this.

Oh! What a Lovely War 
Oh! What a Lovely War
 will be our next theatrical project (save the date for performances 14-17th March 2018). This will be an exciting revival of the original 1963 musical satire on war. Budding performers are invited to the auditions in church on Sunday 24th September at 1.30pm & Monday 25th September at 8.30pm. For more information, please email kimstaniland@outlook.com or call Kim on 07966 549420 or speak to Katharine Ward or Michael Baker.

Parish Weekend Retreat 13th-15th October
There are still places available on our weekend retreat. The cost of the retreat this year will be £180*. For more details, speak to Fr Bruce, Debbie or Annie.
*There is the opportunity of some bursaries to help with the full cost. Please see Fr Bruce.

Sacred Space
Sacred Space continues at 6.00pm tonight. The church is open from 5.30pm for those who wish to stay in silence before the service.

Haringey Foodbank
The Foodbank is currently experiencing an increase in the number of people using our service, and so, to avoid the possibility of running out of food, we are appealing for more donations. If you are able to donate, please bring non-perishable food (tinned, dried, UHT) & leave it in the box near the font. If you have any questions, please contact Mari-Wyn (mariwyn82@gmail.com/07340 955699). Thank you!

Revision of the Sick List
We very much value our ministry of praying for those who are sick and housebound. In September we aim to revise the list (this hasn’t been done for a number of years) to make sure it is accurate. Please can you let Pam Curran know of any names that you wish to remain on the list. Any names not accounted for will be removed when the list is updated in October.

St Mary’s Tower is open on Sunday 13th September 2.00-5.00pm as part of Open House Weekend. Come and share this beautiful space, climb the Tower and meet new friends. All welcome.

Besom
Besom in Haringey is a local organisation that connects people with time, money and/or resources with people in need. They are currently in need of people to do administration. This is midweek work & can be done from home. Please do get in touch besominharingey@gmail.com. Thank you.
