Monthly Charity for August

Our monthly charity for August is USPG. We will collecting donations for them after the morning services on Sunday.

From their website here:

Founded in 1701, we are the Anglican mission agency that partners churches and communities worldwide in God’s mission to enliven faith, strengthen relationships, unlock potential and champion justice.

Environmental degradation. Turbulent global politics. Gender injustice. The desperate flight of migrants. Forced displacement of people at record levels. USPG believes today’s major challenges cry out for words and actions that express a love and solidarity that goes beyond narrow self-interest and national boundaries.

We believe the churches of the Anglican Communion are called urgently in mission to be communities of resistance and hope, witness to the healing power of Christ’s love. So we invite you to journey together with us in rethinking mission, energising church and community and championing justice.

Easter 2019

The Bishop of Barking, The Right Reverend Peter Hill visited St John’s on Easter morning and presided at both the choral Eucharist and the Family service. Part of the service for the children was held on the church field, in exceptional weather. Fortunately, none of the chocolate eggs melted in the Easter Egg Hunt. The whole day was a joyous occasion for all.
