TONIGHT 9th MARCH 6.30 CHORAL EVENSONG
NEXT SUNDAY: MOTHERING SUNDAY
NOT please ‘Mother’s Day’ – that’s a recent US secularist solecism!!
On Sunday 15 March the 9.30 Service is a FAMILY
EUCHARIST; apart from the Creche, the children
will stay in church to see the presentations made by
the older children and flowers will be blessed &
distributed. We hope that many children will take
part - & adults will help from 11.00 on Saturday to
make up the bunches of flowers – see wardens.
ACCOMPANIED BY THE PURCELL PLAYERS
We are delighted that once again The Purcell Players will accompany
our combined voluntary/professional choirs in a very special Evensong.
The music comprises a setting of the
Magnificat by Buxtehude (he influenced Bach)
and two English motets:
Purcell’s Remember not Lord,
Pelham Humfrey’s O Lord My God.
For Postlude: an Albinoni Trio Sonata.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
THE SOLEMN SEASON OF LENT
The LENT ’15 LEAFLET contains full details. This week’s highlights:

the Book of Common Prayer Gospel for the week.

Thursday 7.30pm in the School Hall Lent Study Course
FOR ALL DEDICATED FOLLOWERS OF FASHION…
This is one of the year’s most popular services;

All our Mothering Sunday collections (apart from pledged Stewardship)
will be given to St Andrew’s Clinics for Children, to supports basic primary
health care to children and their mothers in Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Zanzibar,
Kenya and Ghana, in sub-Saharan Africa. Its top priority is reducing the
Under Five Mortality Rate. The U5MR in Sierra Leone is 262 deaths per
1000 live births. In the UK it is 6. Last year StACC provided no fewer than
90,000 patient treatments – 60% for malaria - at a cost of c£1 per treatment.

ANNUAL CHURCH MEETING

This is the most important Church Meeting of the Year – the
ANNUAL MEETING at which you, the whole congregation,
receive your Church Council’s Report & Accounts (copies are
posted by the South Door). This is YOUR opportunity to:
scrutinize them & comment upon the life & work of our church,
& vote for representatives for the next year.
By the South Door you’ll find the Nomination Notices for:
DEPUTY WARDENS, and Lay (that is, YOUR) Representatives
on the PAROCHIAL CHURCH COUNCIL & CHURCH COUNCIL
This is our opportunity to thank the huge number of people who contribute to
our life here, and to celebrate the ministry and witness of St Mary Abbots.
Be sure to be there to play YOUR part in our church’s continuing life.
We gather from at 6.00pm so that you can read the
ANNUAL REPORT & ACCOUNTS
before the Meeting starts promptly at 6.30
SACRED MEALS:
SYMBOLIC FOODS IN JUDAISM & CHRISTIANITY
What do we actually do? What is our day-to-day work?
How do its responsibilities and opportunities relate to our Christian faith and
discipleship? Five members of our congregation will tell and show us what
they actually do, and reflect on and discuss how we relate what we say and do
in church on Sundays with what we do throughout the rest of the week.
This week, March 12 – SOPHIE SPEYER
Fabric and Accessories Designer
Each week we serve a light supper. If you plan to come, please let us know
[email protected] or by signing the list in church.
Our thanks to all who worked so hard to make
Friday evening’s concert in aid of
RAHAB
working to help Women in our community who
have been Trafficked into prostitution
such a great success. There is still so much to do…
It was a great privilege last Sunday to commission and admit to the
Catechumenate the members of our adult and Junior Confirmation
Classes. Please continue to support them in your prayers

In every recent year, other people have joined these groups
once they got underway. One of the advantages of having a proper,
in-depth, three-and-a-half month preparation period is that
it is possible to catch up with what has been missed.
This means that it’s not too late for YOU to join in!
Just speak to one of the clergy,
or email [email protected]
The Council for Christians and Jews offers an interfaith meeting, let by the
Revd Ian Delinger and Rabbi Amanda Golby, on this central and, in the runup to Easter and Passover, very timely topic. Monday 23 March from 6.308.00pm, the Samson Family Concourse, West London Synagogue, 34 Upper
Berkeley Street, W1. See Jenny for more details.
GARTH FOR CREMATED REMAINS
Our Bishop is coming to dedicate the Garth towards the end of March. Then
we will be able to start to use it for its holy and precious purpose.
Scaffolding rises all around us! The renewal of our roofs will
begin shortly, and last until the end of November, causing disruption to
access around the church. This is one phase of our highly ambitions - but
long overdue - total renovation and enhancement of St Mary Abbots.
St. Mary Abbots' Book Club
The next meeting of the Book Club will be at 2.30pm on Thursday March
26th. We will discuss "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie
Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows. After the discussion we
will enjoy a friendly and delicious tea. New members are welcome, please
contact Anita Quinn for details: [email protected]
