Parish Safeguarding team

The Archdiocese of Southwark is committed to the safety and welfare of children and vulnerable adults. The Diocese co-operates fully with CSAS, the Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service, which aims to help the Church become an example of best practice in the Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, and develop a "culture of vigilance" to ensure that children and vulnerable adults in our care are kept safe from harm.

The members of the Safeguarding team at Christ the King are Celine Duckworth, David Boyce and Simon Cowdry.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."

From the newsletter and Mass intensions sheets

CITY WALK: I would highly recommend this walk around the City of London guided by our own Marian Clarke. She usually visits the City churches. But this year she is leading special walks, and they are FREE. For more info please visit www.cityoflondon.gov.uk, click on ‘Visit the City’, then ‘Women, Work & Power’ and on side panel on left in ‘Things to Do’ select ‘Women in the City Walks.’ Two alternatives, ‘Women in the West’, Mon 30 July at 11am & ‘Women in the East’ on Thurs 30 Aug at 11am.

Morning of Quiet Reflection, Catholic Christian Meditation & Healing Prayers – Saturday 11 August from 10.30am-1.00pm at Sacred Heart Church, Edge Hill, Wimbledon. In the Lounge after 10am Mass, starting with tea & coffee. Organized by the Love Heals Body Mind & Spirit Team.

PARISH CHRISTMAS FAIR: will take place on Saturday 17 November 2018 – it is our only fundraising event and a wonderful community gathering. New helpers are particularly welcome and of course our ‘regulars’! So, everyone interested in helping in any way is invited to come to a PLANNING MEETING on Tuesday 11 September at 8pm in the Counting Room in the Presbytery. Please put the date in your diaries now! (The Presbytery is just around the corner from the Church, at 9 Crescent Gardens). ALL WELCOME!!

BOOKING OUR HALL: For those of you who are not aware, our hall, (with full kitchen facilities), is available for bookings. It is particularly popular for children’s parties, meetings, music concerts, family lunches/teas etc… Our rates are the most reasonable of any halls in the area - £20 per hr for leisure bookings of parishioners of CTK and £25 for non-parishioners or parishioners booking for business purposes. So, please do consider using the hall, you will be having fun whilst supporting your parish! Bookings can be made via the Parish Office.

Do you want to sponsor a bush in the Church garden? The Crab Apple tree outside the hall kitchen door has been felled due to being rotten. We now have a hole to be filled. Would you like to sponsor a Choysia, which flowers twice a year and is an evergreen? Likely cost is £15-£20. Joint sponsorship welcomed. Please contact Douglas Dallimer on 020 8946 8141.

A TIME FOR MOURNING. Anger, resentment, depression… Those are some of the feelings often experienced in grief. When will they end? How to cope? Such questions are common among those who have been bereaved. On October 12-14 2018 there will be a retreat/workshop for those suffering the pain of loss. It takes place at Aylesford Priory and is residential. For more details telephone Elizabeth Partridge - contact details in the newsletter.

CATHOLIC SINGLES: Helps practising Catholics meet other Catholics. Supports Catholic Parishes & Charities, donating thousands of pounds from members’ fees. Provides a strictly confidential service. Sends members a monthly bulletin called Catholic Networking. Publicises social events free of charge. £10 annual membership. Contact details in the newsletter.

COELIAC hosts are available at each Mass in a pyx beside Fr Anthony.

GOING AWAY?
Thought you could mull over. And you can talk with God about it.
- What do I want our parish to achieve from our Parish Mission next May?.
- What can it do for the people all around us?
- What do they and we really need?

PARISH OFFICE CLOSURE – The Parish Office will be closed from Monday 20 August reopening on Weds 5 September. This also means that there will be no response to any emails sent to the parish email ‘info’ address during this time.

SUNDAY LUNCHES: My diary is empty. I should be grateful if you would invite me. Usually about 1pm. It is a great way of getting to know people, (and being fed)! I eat anything. Or, if you do not do lunch on Sundays perhaps you could invite me for a cuppa any day. Thank you.

REDECORATION APPEAL UPDATE: Fr Anthony and the Parish Finance Committee would like to thank everyone who responded to the Redecoration Appeal. We have received a number of extremely generous donations from parishioners and, in particular, an outstandingly generous anonymous donation, which has brought the total raised so far to £18,643.74. The final cost of the works was about £20,000 and it would be wonderful if we could raise this amount before the appeal closes.
If you would still like to contribute, please do so by making a bank transfer to our bank account Sort Code: 60 50 01, Account Number: 36006076 or by using a white gift aid envelope, available at the back of the church, and marking it ‘Redecoration Appeal’. If you do not fill in your name and address we will know that the donation is not gift aided.

NEW GIFT AID ENVELOPES: Please would all those who are registered with our Parish Gift Aid Scheme collect your new envelopes from the table at the back of church. Any uncollected this weekend will be posted on. Many thanks.
