Notices

Great War Centenaries: We remember CHARLES WILLIAM BALDWIN, Lance Corporal, 18th Battalion, King’s Royal Rifle Corps, who died of his wounds on 24 October 1917, aged 36. He is buried in St Sever Cemetery Extension, Rouen. He was the husband of Eliza Baldwin of 13 Jameson Street, Campden Hill. In the 1911 census he is listed as a fishmonger worker with a one-year-old son.

St George's Garden:  You may have noticed how beautiful the garden is looking. This is due to the hard work of Graham Franklin. Many thanks to him for doing such a grand job.

Meditation Group:  This group meets weekly on Monday between 6.00-6.40pm. A short reflection is given at the beginning, and then a period of silence for 30 minutes. In our frenetic London lives, this is a wonderful thing to get us to pause and be still. 'In contemplative prayer we seek to become the person we are called to be, not by thinking of God, but by being with God. Simply to be with God is to be drawn into being the person God calls us to be' (John Main).

Autumn term course,  please note change of schedule:  there will, after all, be a session at Bickersteth House Monday 23rd, in the evening at 6.30pm (on European Protestantism) and on 30 October and 6 November as planned; but there will now not be one on 13 November.

All Souls Fauré Requiem at St John the Baptist on Sunday 5 November, at 6.30pm: Please contact the parish office or Fr James, Fr Neil or Fr Peter if you have any names that you would like to be remembered.  office@stgeorgescampdenhill.com.

Bible study.  On the 25 October we will be studying Paul's epistle to the Romans. 12 noon Eucharist, followed by a simple soup and bread lunch and Bible study ending by 2pm. Novices and experts welcome.

Theatre trip: Following on from previous visits to the theatre (with a drink at a local pub afterwards to discuss) Fr James is going to see ‘The Busy World is Hushed’, a play directed by Paul Higgins (a member of St George's), at 7.30pm on 9 November. Tickets can be booked by visiting www.finboroughtheatre.co.uk/productions/2017/the-busy-world-is-hushed.. Please let Fr James know if you are able to join.

“If you take God away, the world is no less horrible”  Hannah, a widowed Minister and Bible scholar, finds her faith at odds with that of her long estranged gay son, Thomas. She has recently hired an inquisitive young writer, Brandt, to assist with her book about a newly discovered manuscript that appears to be a lost gospel, one that may predate those in the Bible itself. As she notices the chemistry brewing between Brandt and her son, she decides to risk all on an unconventional opportunity for reconciliation that has unexpected consequences for all three of them.  Originally premiered at New York City’s Playwrights Horizons, ‘The Busy World is Hushed’ examines – with wisdom, humour and insight – the contradictions we find in our faith, our families and ourselves…


Saturday November 11th at 7.30 at St George’s - ‘The Apple and the Rainbow’ An evening of music and words for autumn and Remembrance given by the Saint Martin Singers. This friendly small a cappella choir (who began life as a group of fire watchers during the 1940s) is celebrating its 75th year, and will bring a programme to us including songs by Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Rossini and Finzi; with readings from the book of Genesis,Miracle plays and poems down the ages to illustrate the themes.    November 11th as well as being Armistice Day, is the day when St Martin of Tours is remembered - he was a soldier conscripted into the Roman army, who cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar. The choir and readers offer their services wherever they sing, in support of a cause chosen by their hosts. We will give proceeds to The Chelsea Pensioners. Tickets £10: available on the door, but to book in advance, see Jenny Thorn



Pilgrimage to the Holy Land from January 10th to the 17th 2018 with the Rt Revd Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington.

Glass Door Homeless Charity 5th Annual Sleep Out was on Friday 6 October.  A group of 10 of us from the United Benefice participated. (along with 400 others).  In large part to the success of Sleep Out 2016, the charity was able to shelter and support over 250 individuals in winter, more men and women than ever before.  So far £3,090 have been raised, which is a fantastic amount, many thanks to all concerned.

Christian Aid has launched an appeal to support the thousands across India, Bangladesh, and Nepal have endured two months of relentless flooding.  “Across South Asia, an estimated 1,200 lives have been lost and more than 40 million people have been affected. Christian Aid have been responding by providing food and cash where the markets are functioning, sanitation facilities, hygiene material, clean water, and emergency shelter.  To find out more information or to donate, please visit: https://www.christianaid.org.uk/emergencies/south-asia-floods-appeal
