Visit from the Bishop of London
Today we welcome the Bishop of London, Dame Sarah Mullaly, will be preaching at a special service of Evensong and Benediction at St Mary Magdalene’s this evening. The service is to celebrate the completion of the building works, and the partnership with PDT. This will be at 7pm this evening with refreshments afterwards. Paddington Deanery have been invited along with our friends and colleagues from PDT. Do come along and meet the bishop on her first visit to the Benefice.

Concert for the Avenues
St Mary Mags is hosting a fundraising concert for the Avenues Youth Club on Sunday 9th February at 3.30pm, starring performers from the Guildhall, School of Music and Drama, and young people from the Avenues Youth Project. A fun and magical afternoon celebrating youth and showcasing talent, including songs from the musicals and classical performances. Tickets are £30, booking
Children can come for free.  

Grand Junction Programme
Do take a copy of this quarter’s Grand Junction programme of events and activities.

Book Club
The book club will meet next on Wednesday 12th February, at 7.30pm in the Meeting Room at St Peter’s. Our book is “Just William” by Richmal Crompton. After some rather harrowing novels, we thought something lighter would be appropriate to the season.

Volunteers at Grand Junction
Grand Junction has lots of opportunities for volunteers. Do look at the website, or contact Sara:
They are especially keen to recruit people to welcome people to the building.

Help the Organ
The organ at St Peter’s needs your help, having suffered damage from liquid entering some pipes. We need to spend £1150 on getting the work done. Please give your donations to Fr Henry or Richard.

Cathedral Programme
