 In order to help people feel relaxed and safe please feel free to exercise your own level of social distancing - no one will think it strange! Hand sanitiser will continue to be freely available. Also do wear a mask if you feel more comfortable. We would also encourage you if you are able, to wear one if you have a cold and have tested clear for Covid 19. 
There will be beverages and chat after the service, in the church hall.

Giving at The Annunciation 

At The Annunciation, each year we choose a focus for our giving. We want to be thankful for all we have and respond to the needs around us.

This year we will be supporting the following charities:


The Samaritans

                   St Luke's Hospice


                              &     Daniel's Den (parent and toddlers, Christian based Charity)

Be sure of a really warm welcome at our monthly Coffee Morning Plus

Our next get together:

Saturday
10th September 2022
10.00am - 12.00pm
 

Each month we have a different focus for those interested.
In July our focus was on 

VEGAN FOOD!!
At a time when we need to be thinking more about the impact of how we're shopping and eating on our world, we thought it would be good to revisit what's good about a vegan diet. We had some really good discussions and shared some tasters and menu ideas
We were not promoting veganism per say, that's not our place - but thought it's thought provoking and would be fun to explore a bit!
September will be a chilled affair with nothing special on the menu.
Just a general natter and catch up after the August break. All the usual chit chat and friendship over a cuppa will be available and a slice of lemon drizzle will certainly be on hand.
Hoping to see you there.


We are continuing to stay safe by encouraging a level of social distancing, the wearing of masks if you feel more comfortable using one and by the use of hand sanitiser stations. Just do what makes you feel comfortable. The hall is also thoroughly cleaned and sanitised just before you come.

Sundays at 9.30am...

Each week...

We meet together to celebrate our faith, encourage each other, share a simple commemoration of Jesus gift of his life for his creation in bread and wine, and pray for our community and our world.

Do join us as we explore the life of Jesus and his actions and ask ourselves what they can mean for us today.
The Annunciation, on the corner of Carlton Avenue East and Windermere Avenue.

Hi. I'm Jacqui and I help to provide a space that helps our children to feel part of the worship while being able to enjoy quiet activities. We have an open area at the back of the church, and you are welcome to use it and sit with your children there and still enjoy the service, if you need to.
Latest Jacqui.jpg
The long term impact of the pandemic means we haven't been able to offer Junior church just now, especially in terms of availability of staff. Children are, however, welcome to sit with their parents and we keep the service with a comfortable level of informality. They are welcome to bring books and quiet activities and use the creche area at the back of the church. Please help them to join in as much as they can. We are praying for the time when we can offer Junior Church again. 

We have a heart for sharing God's love with children that nurtures their own spiritual journey, and continue to pray for the gift of those who share that vision of encouraging children and their families so that we can better reach out and provide for our local families.

A prayer for the people of Grenfell & all in a place of loss, worry and fear in Ukraine and neighbouring countries...

Father of all... We continue to remember the friends, family and neighbours, who continue to feel so keenly the loss of loved ones as a result of the Grenfell Tower fire on 14th June 2017.
(for latest information visit https://www.grenfelltowerinquiry.org.uk)

We also add to this the many, many families facing ongoing loss and particularly we remember the people of Ukraine.

 
We are thankful that Jesus did not run away from pain and disaster - his own or those around him.

A prayer

Jesus, because you faced everything we face we know that you understand what loss and all the pain that goes with it feels like. Be with everyone on their individual journey, bring them your peace where there are no answers and may your love soothe every area of pain they are experiencing and the hope of a brighter tomorrow. 

 
We ask that in the words of Corrie Ten Boom, they would 'never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.' Amen.

Lots of questions about the Christian faith?...about prayer, what difference faith makes, and where Jesus Christ fits with it all? Or just feel like you've been round the block with it all already and need a fresh injection of inspiration and enthusiasm?

 

This slot will be updated once a term with a short film that explores what makes the Christian faith something worth taking a fresh look at - whether you consider yourself a Christian or not.

As we begin the journey into 2022 the well known Pastor, Tim Keller, who is currently walking through his own personally difficult times with cancer,  shares with us some of his reflections about what prayer actually is and how we can learn to do it. He uses the book of the Psalms in sharing some thoughts to meditate on, in this short time.  Our prayer is that this is inspirational to you wherever you are or aren't on your faith journey. May you find inspiration for your journey today.

 

Just click on the brown button Tim Keller: Discovering how to pray to enjoy this talk. If you need to ask questions about what you watch and hear in this clip feel free to contact us by clicking on the 'contact us' button and we'll respond. God bless .
