Thank you to Erika Le Roux and Friends
On Wednesday, 20th August 2014, Erika Le Roux performed another lunchtime concert, together with some musical friends - a very special concert, dedicated to a very special person.
Read here about it - and mark your calendars for the last of this year's series on Wednesday, 17th September 2014, 1 pm!
The Anglican Communion is very involved in relief work is the Gaza crisis. The Diocese of Jerusalem operates one of the few hospitals in Gaza, the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City. Despite structural damage to the hospital, Al-Ahli staff have maintained round-the-clock presence and care for those who have been wounded. Further adding to the strain are shortages in medical supplies, fuel for electrical generators, and food supplies.
As we commemorate the beginning of the First World War, reconciliation and healing are an important theme - but they always are, in any community, be it a nation, a family or a church. August's Food for Thought wants to help you personally to heal from past or present hurts - see here.

Malawi Project - Thank you!
Thank you all for your tremendous support of our Malawi Outreach Project. Over the last few Sundays you gave €606, which will be matched by a further €300 from the Outreach budget allowing us to provide not only the money for two bicycle ambulances, but also for additional medical supplies for St Anne’s hospital. Special thanks are due to Fleur and Wolf-Dieter Donecker for organising and coordinating this important Outreach project!
On Sunday, 31 August 2014, we will have our annual Parish picnic, beginning with worship, followed by fun, food and fellowship. More information coming soon.
