Electoral Rolls
If you are a regular worshipper, you should be on our electoral roll (it’s basically a membership list, but it qualifies you to vote to elect churchwardens and the PCC, so it’s called an electoral roll). We have to revise the roll every year prior to the Annual Meeting in the spring, so it is time for revision. Do check the roll at the back of church, and if you aren’t on it, or if your address is wrong, please fill in a form and give it back to Fr.Henry.

Stations 2016
There are art installations all over London enabling you to follow the Stations of the Cross with works of art, contemporary and traditional, by Christian, Muslim and Jewish artists. To find out more check the poster or go to www.coexisthouse.org.uk/stations2016.html

Diocesan Lent Appeal
You should have had a leaflet introducing the Diocesan Lent Appeal (if not, please pick one up in church) which is to aid persecuted Christians in Iraq and Syria. There is a plate or basket at the back of church for your donations.

Book Club
For the March meeting of the Book Club, on Wednesday 23rd March, the book to read is “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrick Backman. The poster is up in both churches, please sign up if you are coming.

Please make sure you take home the leaflet with details of our Holy Week services.
