LENT ART INSTALLATION
Southwark Cathedral is displaying ‘Doubt,’ an artwork by Susie MacMurray, until 30th March. Each year, an artist is invited to provide a piece to act as a focus for contemplation and reflection during Lent. British sculptor MacMurray has created a ‘cloud,’ which dominates the chancel and high altar sanctuary. The work stems from a conversation she had with a soldier who had served in Afghanistan, who spoke about how he had felt a dark weight hovering behind him. It led MacMurray to think about the 40 days and 40 nights of Jesus’ fast in the Judaean Desert.
GOOD FRIDAY CONCERT
The St Cecilia Festival Chorus will perform their annual concert on Good Friday at 7.30pm at the United Reform Church on Court Road. Francis Eastwood will conduct Faure’s Requiem for the final time, having directed the concert for the past 50 years. Jack Day will conduct Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs. For more details, see the poster at the back of church or speak to Colin MacKenzie.
ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING
The Annual Parochial Church Meeting will be held immediately after the Eucharist on Sunday 22nd April. The meeting is an opportunity to hear about what has been happening in the church over the past year and is open to all on the electoral roll.
On Holy Saturday, we’ll be decorating the church in preparation for Easter Sunday. We’ll start around 10am, and all are welcome to join us, including children. If you have any queries, please speak with Fr Jim or Robyn Price.
The Friends of Wensley Close will hold a coffee morning and bring-and-buy on Tuesday 17th April at 10am-12.30pm at Charter House in King John’s Walk (approach by Court Yard, turn right at Eltham Palace gates). Please come if you can to support this local charity, which helps children with learning disabilities.
