Welcome to the summer schedule
During the summer period, there are some changes to our regular schedule:
Our Sunday format stays the same, but on Mondays there will be no services in church. Whilst Morning Prayer continues on Tuesdays at 9.00am, the Contemplative Prayer Group takes a summer break. On Wednesdays, Morning Prayer moves to 10.00am, with the Eucharist and Evening Prayer remaining at their usual times of 11.00am and 5.15pm respectively. Morning Prayer on Thursday is at the later time of 9.00am, followed by silent prayer lasting about 25 minutes, followed by a cup of tea or coffee. Morning Prayer on Friday remains at 10.00am, and for the Saturday schedule please refer to the sheet from week to week.
Bowls for bulbs, jars for jam
We are about to start planting up hyacinths for the Bazaar. Do you have any large bowls, i.e. l6cm, 6-7in. diameter, maybe from last year or before? We would be very pleased to have them back as soon as possible. Have you inherited any vegetable tureens from your Grandmother – they look lovely planted with hyacinth! We also need 1lb jam jars as the jam making and pickling season has started.
Please leave any bowls and jam jars in the box at the back of church.
Looking towards a new rota
A new rota will begin at the start of September, and we want your help creating it. Please fill in the rota at the back of church, writing your name next to the date when you would like to do your duty, and with whom you may have a preference to serve. We suggest you get your name down quickly to ensure you secure the date that suits you.
This annual fundraising event, in aid of the Haringey/Holetown Youth Project, will be held on Sat 9th September 2017 at Holy Innocents Church, 134 Tottenham Lane N8 7EL commencing 7pm sharp, featuring: church choirs, soloists, local musicians and much more.
Adults £10.00 Children £5.00 (includes light refreshment). Tickets from Cllr Eddie 07908 663 687 and Marietta 07931 306 498.
Sacred Space continues at 6.00pm tonight. Sacred Space is a pared down service, lasting 45 minutes, with lots of space for silence and contemplation and a short homily on prayer. The church is open from 5.30pm for those who wish to stay in silence before the service.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org/07340 955699). Thank you!
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. If you enjoy phoning social workers, matching furniture needs with donations or organising a van schedule, please get in contact using the email below. This is midweek work & can be done from home. There is a small committed team to enjoy doing this work with. Please do get in touch email@example.com. Thank you.
Open Rectory Friday 25th August
All are welcome to drop in at the Rectory on Friday 25th August for afternoon tea from 4.00pm, or drinks & a shared supper from 7.00pm. Indeed, you might come at 4 and stay ‘till late. Please bring drink & food to share. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!
Parish Weekend Retreat 13th-15th October
Many of you know Pleshey from previous retreats or perhaps by reputation & will know that it is one of the most popular retreat houses in the South East and perhaps further afield. It is near Chelmsford in Essex, set in beautiful countryside. Our retreat conductor is Fr David Darling, who is a very experienced retreat guide and spiritual director, and spent many years as a Franciscan friar.
The cost of the retreat this year will be £180*. This includes high quality accommodation, superb food for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day as well as the guidance of the retreat conductor and opportunity for a session of one to one spiritual direction with him should you wish to avail yourself of it. We will be asking for a non-refundable deposit of £70 by Sunday 20th August, and full payment of the balance to follow by Sunday 17th September.
If you would like your name to be added to the list of those attending, please let Fr Bruce, Debbie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Annie (email@example.com) know – or you can add it to the list in church.
*There is the opportunity of some bursaries to help with the full cost. Please see Fr Bruce.
