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."

PARISH CHRISTMAS FAIR – Saturday 18 Nov – 11am-3pm: Hopefully you all now have special (pink) leaflet given out with information about how you can help, including specific items we would encourage you to donate. This includes information about the Tree of Promises, our most popular and highest earning stall (forms for this can be found on the newsletter tables). Boxes are available at the back of the church for your donations.
Young parishioners will be giving out (pale blue) fliers this weekend asking for donations of Jewellery (in good condition) & Christmas Items to be brought in next weekend of 21/22 October. But anything on our list will be happily accepted!

THE ANNUAL BLESSING OF GRAVES will take place on Remembrance Sunday, 12 November, at 3.00pm at the Garth Road Cemetery.

SUNDAY LUNCHES: My diary is free from 12 November onwards. If anyone would like to invite me, I would enjoy coming. Or if you do not wish to do lunch on Sundays, perhaps you would invite me for a cuppa any day?

MONEY LEFT IN HALL: A few months ago a carrier bag was left in the hall with some money in it. As it was not claimed by anyone, it was used to buy food for the Faith in Action Homeless drop-in on Kingston Road. They have been told that it was a donation from Christ the King Church. Many thanks to Douglas and Ute who kindly arranged this.

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

HEALTH & SAFETY EXPERT REQUIRED: Paul Mason kindly inspects monthly. We also have a regular inspection by the Diocesan Inspectors who have highlighted some fairly minor issues. Is there anyone with expertise in this area who could advise us at just one meeting please?

JUSTICE & PEACE GROUP: Following Katharine’s inspirational talk last weekend, the Justice & Peace Group are meeting on Monday 6 November at 8pm at 27 Vineyard Hill Road, SW19 7JL to discuss how best Christ the King can continue to support our twin parish of Our Lady of the Missions in Lima, Peru, once the Columbans are no longer there. New J&P members are always welcome, so do, please come along if you would like to be involved in this initiative or would like to know more about the Justice & Peace group in this parish.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION: Applications forms are available from the newsletter tables this weekend for those wishing to be prepared for First Holy Communion in 2018. The ceremony will take place on Sunday 24 June 2018 at 10.30am. Please take a form, complete and return to the Presbytery by Sunday 29 October 2017 at latest. A MEETING FOR ALL PARENTS WILL TAKE PLACE ON MONDAY 30 OCTOBER AT 8PM IN THE HALL. Preparation Sessions will start the following Sunday 5 November. There will be no late admissions. Please note that children must be in School Year 3 or older in order to register and priority will be given to those who are regular attenders of Christ the King.

SENIORS’ CHRISTMAS LUNCH – Sunday 10 December at 2pm in the Church Hall. More details to follow!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for SENIORS’ CHRISTMAS LUNCH: Volunteers needed both on the day and to prepare for the lunch. If you can help please contact Frances Bartholomew on 020 8944 0669.

OCTOBER IS THE MONTH OF THE ROSARY: perhaps, if you have got out of the habit, you could try saying at least one decade.
