Barn Dance

Many thanks to everyone who helped at the Barn dance and came to support it. The event had a lovely feel, with a mix of old and new friends, all enjoyed in a delightful venue. It was a great occasion and we look forward to letting you know how much we raised towards the work of the church in the community as soon as we can.

 

PCC meeting
There is a PCC meeting this Wednesday 17th at 8pm. Don’t forget that the PCC leads your church so let us know if there are things you would like considered.

 

Calling all book lovers!

We need more volunteers for the Basement Bookshop.

We are open from 10.00 to 1.00pm the first and third Saturday of every month. We are also open from 10.00 to 12.00 noon each Friday morning. Just some help on a few Saturdays or Fridays would help us very much.

If you are interested then please get in touch with us at

thebasementbookshop@gmail.com or call Cathy on 07779264085.

 

Berkhamsted walk, 20th July

Join Richard and Jennifer Hodges as they go on a ramble around Berkhamsted in the Chiltern Hills. The walk will be suitable for most abilities and experience, and a fun part is stopping in a pub for lunch.  If interested please tell Richard; full details of the walk will be available nearer the time.

 

Welcome. Theft. Generosity.

As you will have seen in this week’s Curate’s Curios, we have suffered several thefts in the church over the last few months. Since we are committed to keeping the church open we have decided to invest in 12 lockable lockers so that our staff and volunteers can keep their bags safe. They will cost £400 – if you can contribute financially to this purchase we would be very grateful. You will find envelopes in the pews – if we collect more than we need for the lockers the money will be used for other essential equipment.

 

Parish Retreat 2020

Our Parish Retreat will take place next June, Friday 12th to Sunday 14th. So please SAVE THE DATE. The retrteat will take place at Worth Abbey, well known monastery in Sussex, where the TV series ‘Monastery’ was filmed in 2004. With a mixture of lovely walks, good food, silence and the opportunity to join in the monastic rhythm, we hope it will appeal to new and seasoned retreat goers. Watch this space for more information.

 

Zane’s run for Cancer Research

My name is Zane. On the 20th July at Finsbury park I’m doing my first 5k run to raise money for a great cause, Cancer Research – and for the memory of my Dad, who died from cancer in 2013. Please go on this link below or please come and see me at the end of the service to donate. Many thanks.   https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/zanes-race-for-life-16

 

Give as you Live

Go to www.giveasyoulive.com, click on ‘Sign up’ When selecting your charity you will be directed to a menu called Categories. Strangely our church isn’t in the ‘Religious’ category but is in the ‘All categories’ category. Once you are registered you can nominate Hornsey Parish Church as your preferred charity. You may be given a choice of three churches when you search for Hornsey Parish Church on their website – please select the one that has ‘The Ecclesiastical Parish of St Mary With St George Hornsey’ in the title. Once you have signed up, you can browse their website for the store you want to shop with. Click ‘shop now’ to go to the store’s website, then continue to shop as normal. Give as you Live will then email you within 1-7 days to let you know how much you’ve raised for Hornsey Parish Church. You don’t pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you, and it’s also completely free for Hornsey Parish Church.
