Dear Friends

We are fast approaching Holy Week and Easter, here are a few reminders of services and events which are on the horizon.

DON’T FORGET THE CLOCKS GO FORWARD ON SATURDAY EVENING

The children have been working hard rehearsing their parts for this Sunday’s Mothering Sunday mass at 10.30am. It’s going to be a great occasion and I do hope you will be able to attend to offer your support.

In the evening of Sunday 31st Lord Mark Malloch-Brown KCMG PC will be with me in conversation. Lord Malloch-Brown’s career has been in international relations specifically work at the United Nations. I’m sure it is going to be a fascinating evening, especially when you consider the times we are living in.

As you will see in this bulletin we have a list of times and dates for our Holy Week services. Please do try to make them a priority, our worship and attendance during Holy Week enables us to enter as fully as possible into the mystery of the faith we profess. If you are attending the meal on Maundy Thursday at 8pm please bring along a salad, hot food will be provided.

Our preacher for Holy Week and Easter Day is Fr Bill Wilson. Bill is the retired Vicar of St James Sussex Gardens and an excellent preacher.

Our Annual Parochial meeting will be on Sunday 28 April after the parish mass, this is where we vote for our Churchwardens and PCC members and also hear something of the life of St Nicholas. We will also approve our new electoral roll. The electoral roll is the list of people who are connected to St Nicholas. If you haven’t already done so, please fill in an electoral roll form, or let the office know of your desire to join the roll. 

Please also make a date in your diary for our amazing concert of piano and voice on Friday 26 April. Tickets are selling fast.

Dear Friends

This week saw the fourth and final week of our Mindfulness course run by Fr Fabrizio Pesce from St Peter’s, Acton Green church. Our course has been well attended and much appreciated by participants. Fr Fabrizio will be running an eight week, more in-depth, follow on course starting in May at St Peter’s and is encouraging us to join. However, if a sufficient number of people sign up, he is willing to run this course for us separately at St Nick’s. Please let me know if you would be interested in attending so that we can get an idea of numbers.

With every blessing

Mother Eileen
