Churches Together in Kew, in conjunction with St Anne’s Social Justice Forum, are presenting a lecture on Tuesday 6th March, 7.45 pm at the Barn Church, Atwood Avenue, Kew TW9 4HF.  The subject is “Climate Change and a faithful Christian response”,  with attention to Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si: on care for our common home.  Two distinguished speakers, Bishop David Atkinson and Father Nicholas King SJ will present a discussion on this important, topical subject.  Please make an effort to attend and support our fellow Christians in Kew.

The emergency winter night shelter programme is progressing well around our borough.  We cannot host a night shelter within our buildings, but we can support the work of Glass Door in practical ways:

  • Money – make a Lenten donation now in the envelope attached
  • Knit – guests need socks, hats, gloves, scarves, to get through the cold weather this winter

What if I can’t knit?  Some suggestions:

  • Donate some wool
  • Find someone to teach you to knit
  • Visit www.glassdoor.org.uk to explore other forms of support

Watch out for parish knitting sessions, donation baskets and other reminders to be generous this Lent.  “Freely we have received: freely give.”
