All Hallows is looking at setting up a ‘Film Club’ for the teenage population of our community. Aimed at young people aged 12 to 18, we are meeting about once every 8 weeks or so in the Choir Vestry (at the back of the Church) to watch a movie and share in food like pizzas and popcorn.
Our first film showing will take place on Sunday 16th March at 5.00pm. Bring along a £2 donation to help pay for the food (and a bean bag if you have one!) Please let us know if you intend on coming along so enough food is purchased! firstname.lastname@example.org 020 8241 2345
A service of Evensong and Benediction will take place on Sunday 23rd March at 6.30pm. This will be celebrating the Third Sunday of Lent and will be led by the church choir. Refreshments will be served in the narthex after the service.
A Church Clitz Clean is organised for Saturday 12th April from 9.00am to 12.30pm. Our usual set of ladies will be here, however, they could do with at least another two and even a man (or two) complete with a ladder to reach those areas shorter ladies can’t get to! Please come armed with your own cleaning materials and Marigolds. The more people we have to clean, the quicker the time it will be done and the better the final result – and you will enjoy doing it! You are very welcome to pop along anytime during that morning, but if you are intending on coming along to help out, please let us know at the Parish Office 020 8241 2345 email@example.com
Our fun Spring Quiz Night takes place on Saturday 26th April. Tickets for this event are £10 each and includes a ploughmans buffet meal at half time. The doors open at 6.30pm and the quiz will begin promptly at 7.00pm. Tickets can be purchased from Alex or Lee Oliver after services at the church, or from Alex in the Parish Office (Wednesday to Friday 9.30am to 1.30pm) firstname.lastname@example.org 020 8241 2345. Last date for buying tickets is Thursday 24th April. Proceeds from this event will be going towards our Bell Fund. The All Hallows Bells have a very long history and are important to keep in good condition, and they currently need new bearings, at a cost of around £8,000. This quiz will be the first in a season of fundraising activites and events over the summer and autumn to raise money for the Bell Fund to replace the bearings.
Our annual Service of Confirmation takes place on Sunday 11th May at 6.30pm. We welcome The Right Revd Paul Williams, Bishop of Kensington to this service.
