A huge joy

It was a huge joy for me this summer to be ordained priest, and to preside the next day for the first time at the Eucharist here. In introducing the ordination service, the Bishop of Fulham described it as ‘being lowered into the priesthood’ and he had a point. We are all called as Christians to be servants of the Gospel, and priests have a particular role in that calling. People often speak of ministry as ‘a privilege’ and that is certainly how I feel. As the Eucharistic Prayer says, addressing itself to God: we thank you for counting us worthy to stand in your presence and serve you. And in the same way I thank all of you – and this parish – for your support and encouragement so far. It is wonderful to be with you here at St Anne’s and I appreciate it greatly.

The coming months are bursting with activity. In September we have ‘Back to Church Sunday’ to bring as many people back as possible, then October with a focus on giving – particularly the Harvest festivities, Auction of Promises and stewardship. November as the month of the ‘Holy Souls’ is a moment to pray for our dear departed and reflect on our own mortality, as well as the Winter Fair. And finally December, with Advent and preparations for Christmas.

Please do join us as much as you can and help to keep the church so alive in this corner of Highgate.

Study Morning on St. Mark’s Gospel

Come and re-explore the Gospel of Mark with us! Some topics include:

How does Mark convey the Good News? How does his portrayal of Jesus speak to us today? What can we learn from the conflicts between Jesus and the authorities? And from the miracles?

We explore all this, and more.
