The Upper Room provides services for the homeless, vulnerable and socially disadvantaged in West London, please give as generously as you can.

Giving with Grace Throughout September, we are all encouraged to consider and commit seriously to regular planned giving in order to support and maintain the ministry and mission of St George’s. An explanatory letter and pamphlet have been posted to all members of the congregation. If you have not received or have mislaid the letter, please let us know. There is also a display of the explanatory material at the back of the church. PCC members will be happy to answer queries or discuss any aspect of regular planned giving with you.

Bible study resumes after our midday Holy Communion on Wednesday 12 September. We gather over a light lunch in the community space at St. Georges and will be studying the Rule of St. Benedict, which emphasises Prayer, Work, Community and Hospitality. Please see the enclosed flyer which gives further details.

The dates for the future study are Wednesday 26 Sept, 10 October, 31 October, 14 November, 28 November and 12 December.

You are welcome to dip in and out of the course and if you cannot attend all the sessions, we would love to see you at some. Please let Fr Peter (ssmhollandpark@gmail.com) know if you would like to join us on 12 September or any of the future lunches.

Fr Michael Fuller writes “Greetings from St Cyprian's Church, Clarence Gate, Marylebone. A month from now we are to celebrate our Patronal Festival and I am delighted that Bishop Sarah is coming to celebrate and preach.  I would like to take this opportunity of inviting you, your family, friends and parishioners to join us on the 15th September at 12noon for the High Mass followed by refreshments.”

The PCCs of St George's and St John the Baptist have agreed to hosting an intern, a pastoral assistant, starting in September 2018. This is a new scheme set up by the Bishop of Kensington.  It provides an opportunity for those who are exploring their vocation. It involves one year living in community (at Bickersteth House, where Jill Traynor is the warden) and linked to a church so as to gain valuable life skills that will help to prepare them for their next steps. It gives them the opportunity to deepen their theological knowledge, gain practical and pastoral skills, and to reflect on their personal faith journey. During this year, some interns might decide to offer themselves for ordination.  We would like to give a warm welcome to our intern, Nicholas Boisson, who will arrive in September.

Kerala Monsoons. Due to heavy monsoon rains in Kerala thousands of people have been evacuated and many reported deaths with the number rising. The charity CSSI would like to respond to this disaster by raising emergency funds to bring some temporary relief to families in Kerala. Please give if you are able - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/james-heard1

Glass Door sleep out - 5 October 2018 on the Duke of York Square in aid of the winter night shelter.  Churches in West London partner with Glass Door to host a night shelter in winter, allowing up to 35 individuals a safe place to sleep. Other churches take turns to host night shelters, allowing up to 130 individuals a place to sleep every night during the coldest 22 weeks of the year.   

"Taking part in events like the Sleep Out, showing solidarity and raising funds, is a great way to do something tangible to make our communities stronger and help those in need," says Rev Brian Leathard, chair of trustees at Glass Door and rector at St Luke’s and Christ Church, Chelsea.

More information and online registration can be found on the charity's web site: https://www.glassdoor.org.uk/Pages/Category/sleep-out-2018.  Last year 10 of us from the United Benefice did this (along with 300 others!) and raised about £5000 with a total of over £150,000 raised. Do let Fr James know if you are signing up and we can arrange transportation.

If you would like to volunteer to help during the Sunday services, please speak with Fr James, Fr Neil, Fr Peter or the Parish office.  We are looking for sidespeople (the people who greet you when you enter the church), readers, people to guide the prayers, people to help with the chalice, and servers during the service (all training can be given), people to help with coffee after the service.

Please help us raise money for SJB by registering with www.easyfundraising.org.uk How does it work? They work with over 2000 retailers (including Amazon, M&S, John Lewis, Argos and 2000 companies) who have all agreed to pass a donation to our cause when we shop with them. To raise money, first register at easyfunding. Where it says “Select a charity” enter “St John the Baptist Holland Road.” Complete registration with your email and chosen password. In future, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log into easyfundraising first (you can opt for a bookmark on your browser to make this easier) and then click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as you would normally. But because you visited easyfundraising first, your cause gets a donation. There is an App for smartphones. So far we have 5 subscribers whose shopping has raised £25!

Cleaning work has started at St John the Baptist.  The church and café remain open during this essential work, there is scaffolding inside the church, and areas will be unavailable for access, but it will all be signposted.  There was a small fire in 2017 which resulted in a lot of smoke damage, the specialist cleaning company expects the work to last for a couple of months.

J. Holland’s Kitchen open at St John the Baptist, open from 8am to 4.30pm Monday to Saturday.  Linking with our vision to open our beautiful church to as many people as possible we are so excited about this latest venture.  Please pop in if you can and enjoy a cool drink (if this wonderful summer continues), tea and coffee with cake; the church is lovely and cool, a perfect place to take a step back, have a quiet meditation and enjoy our Grade 1 listed building.  We have leaflets at the back of the church which offer you 15% off, the menu promises specialty artisan coffee, traditional recipes and great wines.  The café will close on Saturdays during August and be closed for holidays from 20 August to 1st September inclusive. 

Bishop of Kensington Teaching evening - 25 September - St Barnabas Kensington, 7pm

In the autumn Bishop Graham will be visiting each Deanery for a ‘Bishops Teaching Evening’ He will look at the age-old ‘Problem of Evil’ and how we might understand more of the mystery of why God permits evil and suffering to exist within his world. The idea is for a good thought-provoking, interactive teaching evening, that helps us see this not so much as a problem for Christian belief as one that can lead people towards faith, hope and love.
