Blessed Lord,

help us so to hear them,
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,
we may embrace and for ever hold fast
   the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

who is alive and reigns, now and for ever.   Amen.

Next Sunday, following the All Age Communion Service, there will be a short, reflective All Souls service, starting at 12.00 noon.  If you’d like the names of those you have loved and lost, read out at that service, please let Sarah know.

Churchyard work party – 2nd November from 10.00 – 4.00 pm.  The day will include activities such as clearing invasive plants, clearing graves and litter picking, this is to enable us to survey the churchyard and decide on how best to manage the beautiful space we have.  We also want to start thinking how best to manage the memorial garden and improve the area as a place to sit and reflect.
This is our last clearance event of the year and we are hoping to finish off the day with a bonfire and - weather permitting - some jacket potatoes and a drink.  As before, no tools are required – please just come along. 

Mothers’ Union – next meeting on 9th November at 10.30 am at Peterhouse.  Marie Makanjuola will be speaking about a project in Sierra Leone and we will be filling and wrapping shoe boxes for “Operation Christmas Child”.

Are you a Christian, keen to deepen and explore your life of prayer?
Come to the E17 School of Prayer!
The parish church of St Peter's-in-the-Forest, Walthamstow is privileged to be able to offer an invite to our forthcoming School of Prayer. This exciting 8-week course has been written - and will be led - by Sue Diplock, a member of the ministry team of St Peter's. The course will have a focus on many traditions within the contemplative strand of Christian prayer. (Sue has had a lifelong interest in this strand of prayer and is currently studying at the London Centre for Spirituality.)

Sessions will be held on Monday evenings: 14th, 21st, October, 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th November and 2nd December, in the Peterhouse Centre (122 Forest Rise, Walthamstow. E17 3PW): each session will begin at 7.45 pm and will finish between 9.00 pm and 9.15 pm.  This week rather than meeting at Peterhouse, we’ll be attending a Taize service at All Hallows in the City of London.  This is on Wednesday 30th October and the service starts at 6.00 p.  Please speak to Sue for further information.

Open Church – next Sunday will be the last Sunday we’ll be opening late, for this year. We’ll have a young quartet coming to play from 1.00 – 1.30 pm, so it would be great if you could come and support them, as while enjoying soup, bread, quiche, tea, coffee or cake!

Christmas Bazaar – Saturday 30th November from 1.00 – 4.00 pm in Peterhouse.  There will be plants, jams, cards, wrapping paper, calendars, Henna decorating, games, cakes… There are still tables available: buy a table for £10 and you keep what you make!  Please see Sarah for information.

London Forest Choir – November 2nd at 7.30 pm, at St Mary’s Walthamstow.  Music by Stamford and Parry.
