IN THE PINK Trinity 7 2017

 Issue 402
During the Building Works
The conservation and building works at St Mary Mags will take about a year, and the church will become a building site, surrounded by a hoarding. The nave will be full of scaffolding so that the conservators and volunteers are able to get up to the ceiling to clean it. It will not be possible for us to do weddings or funerals in the church, but SUNDAY WORSHIP WILL CONTINUE IN THE OUTER VESTRY. That is underneath the chancel, in one of the rooms you get to by going through the gate in the wall at the east end and down the outside steps. We shall have our own entry through the hoarding, enabling us to go down the steps to the Vestry. It will be a squash, but it is important for us to continue worshipping on this site. The Sunday Mass will be 9:30 as usual, and we will try not to have any combined services at Mary Mags. Watch this space for details of special occasions.

Help Fix St Peter’s Roof!
We are having urgent work done on the roof at St Peter’s, fixing splits in the asphalt and repointing the lead flashings round the gutters, because water has been coming in when it has rained hard. This will cost us £3,000. Please can you help us to raise this sun? Donations to the clergy or to Richard Benet.  

September Special
The Women’s Social Group at St Peter’s are planning a celebration for their 3rd birthday on Sunday 24th September, after church. There will be a concert and refreshments, and a very special raffle. Raffle tickets will be available soon for sale. The group will need your help with raffle prizes, so please speak to Josephine Adegbemiro about what is needed.

Free Children’s Activities
The West London Summer Programme, called “A Summer of Possibilities” is running until 18th August based at Burlington Danes Academy. Lots of free activities (including trips away). The website is www.WestLondonSummerProgramme.org 

Prayer Lists
Please remember to delete people from the prayer lists if they have recovered or gone to glory!  

September Book Club
The Book Club will meet at 7:30pm on Wednesday 27th September at St Peter’s.
The book to read is “Perfume” by Patrick Suskind. The usual posters will be going up in church.

Weekday Services
There will be no weekday services at St Mary Mags during the building works. The Tuesday morning Eucharist at St Peter’s will continue as normal (though there will be no service on 8th August).  

School Governors Needed
Both schools will have vacancies for Church governors in the new school year. Please see Fr Henry if you are interested.
