Sunday 29th September – 10.30am
~ ALL WELCOME ~
I hope you have enjoyed the glorious summer we have had so far, and return from any holidays you might have had refreshed and renewed. As you return, you will see that St. Anne’s has also be refreshed and renewed with the porch repainted, a new kitchen, the narthex redecorated and the toilets to follow soon.
The Autumn season at St. Anne’s begins with ‘Back to Church Sunday’ (The Feast of St. Michael and All Angels) when we are especially encouraged to be in church and to invite friends and neighbours who may not have been to church before, or not for a long time. Harvest Festival (12/13 October) follows and on Sunday 20th October, the Feast of St Luke, with anointing for healing. On Saturday 2nd November at 7.30pm a Candelit Requiem Mass to pray for all who have died to music by Gabriel Faure. The Winter Fair falls on Saturday 9th November this year, the day before Remembrance Sunday.
At the end of November we shall be pleased to host the Highgate International Chamber Music Festival once again. (See link on the parish website). 1st December is Advent Sunday and the beginning of the Advent season which we mark with a ‘not to be missed’ candlelit service of music and readings at 6pm. This leads us into the gentle and penitential season of Advent as we prepare to celebrate Christmas which begins with Children’s Carols and Nativity at 5pm on Christmas Eve.
We began with refreshment and renewal and, in the Season of Advent, we end with refreshment and renewal. I hope, that whether it’s in the liturgies, the peace of the church, the weekday services or the other events refreshment and renewal may be the hallmark of your experience of St.Anne’s this Autumn.
Everyone is welcome at St. Anne’s from the deeply faithful to the questioning and the curious. Wherever you fall, I hope that you will find a safe place of prayer and friendship where you may encounter something of the God who loves us all.
We also take safeguarding very seriously at St Anne’s. More information can be found on our dedicated safeguarding page, which comes with the assurance of the clergy and PCC of the parish that we seek to maintain the highest possible standards of responsibility and accountability. We also include links to diocesan and national contacts which I hope is both helpful and assuring.
