Throughout this week, you are invited to join us for worship and other social activities.
Sunday 24 September, 10.00am – Parish Eucharist for Harvest
This Sunday is our Harvest Festival celebration. We’ll be thanking God for the many blessings we are given, and praying for a world where everyone has enough to eat.
During our services, we will be collecting items for the Greenwich Foodbank. Please, if you are able, come to church with items to share. We are looking for packet or tinned foods, bottled or carton drinks and toiletries, especially sanitary products. Let’s make this a bumper harvest at this time of hardship for so many.
Our Harvest services will take place at St Thomas’ and St Luke’s Churches at 10.00am. The service from St Thomas’ will be livestreamed for people joining from home.
Whether you prefer to be in church or joining the livestream from home, we look forward to worshipping together.
To join the service online you can use this link to YouTube. The service will also be live on Zoom where you can join online or listen via any telephone. Download full details for joining our online service
Sunday 24 September – Bible Study
Following the Parish Eucharist, there will be a short break before a Bible Study begins. The study is online. Please stay on the Zoom meeting or come back at about 11.30am to take part.
Sunday 24 September, 9.00pm – Compline
We finish our Sunday with a short service of Compline (or night prayers). We meet on Zoom where you can join online or dial in on any telephone.
Tuesday 26 September – Tuesday Group
The Tuesday Group at St Thomas’ Church meets from 10.00am. It is a time when you can meet with friends and make new friends. Some people choose to relax and have a chat over a cuppa. Others prefer to join the group tending the beautiful Garden of Reflection or helping out with some maintenance. You can also stay for lunch. However you choose to spend the time, you can be guaranteed of a warm welcome.
Tuesday 26 September, 2.00-4.00pm – Community Café
We are launching a new community café at St Richard’s. It is more than just a pop-in place to have a cuppa. It is a place to meet up with old friends and make new ones, jointly hosted by St Richard’s and CCRA in a warm, cosy and friendly environment.
It is a place to indulge your interests in a convivial atmosphere. Come along and have a cuppa whilst doing some knitting, playing a board game or practicing a craft.
Board games provided but feel free to bring your own. Knitters can help in making things which go to new babies in the hospital and there are some DIY and maintenance things to do for people who prefer to be practical. Alternatively, you can just pop in for some cake and conversation.
Come along and meet some neighbours.
2-4pm at St Richard’s Church Centre
Tuesday 26 September, 6.00pm – Evening Prayer
We meet in the beautiful chapel at St Richard’s Church Centre for a service of Evening Prayer at 6.00pm. The entrance to the chapel is in Sundorne Road.
Wednesday 27 September, 6.00pm – Community Choir
The Community Choir is back from its Summer Break. We meet for an hour at St Luke’s Church and are a mixed group of young and old, as well as those who are new to signing and others who are more experienced singers. You’ll be guaranteed a friendly welcome.
Thursday 28 September, 10.00am – Coffee Morning
Join us from 10.00am at St Luke’s for a chance to catch up with friends and make new friends too. As well as having a chat, this is a great opportunity to look around our historic church.
Thursday 28 September, 12 noon – Holy Communion
Following the Coffee Morning, a simple midweek service of Holy Communion takes place at St Luke’s. Everyone is welcome.
