Our local joint Christian Unity Service is at 3pm on Sunday 21 January at the Ransom African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, 2A Mallinson Road. There will be a steel band. It will be fun, but also an opportunity to join with and get to know other local Christians from around the world. Please Note: The start time has been changed to 3 o’clock, not 3.30pm.
DID YOU KNOW that whenever you do any Internet Shopping you can get the retailer to give a small percentage to our parish, at no extra cost?
A parishioner writes: ‘It really is EASY! I am a busy working mother of two (as you can tell from where I shop!) and internet shopping is a key part of keeping our family organised. I have been using Easyfundraising since I read about it in Father Tim’s newsletter. It is very straightforward to use, either download the app to your phone or set up a reminder on your internet browser. It’s only a little amount each time (last month I raised £3.57 with John Lewis, £28.46 with B&Q, £1.50 with Snapfish, Amazon, Argos, Trainline ….the list goes on) but if everyone in the parish signed up, these small amounts could be multiplied by several hundred. With Christmas approaching I encourage you all to use the Easyfundraising website (www.easyfundraising.org.uk) and contribute a little extra to the parish at no cost to you, just by shopping online.’
What to do? Just go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk , log in, choose ‘St Vincent de Paul Church – Clapham’ as your charity. It’s as simple as that. Over 3000 online shops take part. Download the App and make it even easier.
Why not try the ‘Pray as you Go’ App?
Launched by the Jesuits, this App can be downloaded to your phone, to guide you in a simple daily reflection, linked to the scriptures of each day. Just look for ‘Pray as You Go’ App in a search engine – it is free to download.
