Remembrance Day Services

On Sunday 11th, there will be two opportunities to join in an act of remembrance. We have a joint service in church at 9:30am, and then there will be an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial on Giggs Hill Green at 10:50am. Councillors from the Residents Association and a Member of the Armed Forces, Lt Gaytano from the Royal Navy, will lay wreaths at both Acts of Remembrance.

Ringing for Remembrance Sunday

To mark the Centenary of the end of the First World War, the bells will be rung in coordination with other towers across the country.  At 12.30pm they will be rung open to commemorate the celebratory ringing marking the end of the war, and at 7.05pm they will be rung half-muffled (as normal for Remembrance Sunday) in coordination with beacon lighting across the country. Giles André (Tower Captain).

We will remember them

We are publishing a book written by church member Malcolm Cooper as part of the centenary commemoration of Armistice to honour the 107 men and 1 women from Thames Ditton who lost their lives whilst on active service in WW1. Books are available from the Parish Office and cost £8. Any profits or royalties go to the Poppy Appeal. If you are interested, do contact the Parish Office saying how many copies you would like.

Reverse Advent Calendar

To support the local food bank and Joel, we would love you to have a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’. Each day, at home, put an item IN a basket/bag when you take a chocolate OUT of your advent calendar. At the end of the month, bring your reverse calendar into the Office and we will donate it to the foodbank or Joel. Thanks. Andrew & Sarb.

Being Human...

On November 3rd, letters were posted out inviting members of the Church to refresh their stewardship giving.   I hope I reached everyone, but I’m not infallible, and if you did not get one, apologies ……likewise, I may have wrongly addressed some, or sent them inappropriately. But don’t get mad, get emailing (or leave a message at the church office 020 8398 9641) and let me know.   With thanks, Martin (Treasurer).

Bereavement Service

Our annual service in memory of those we have lost is on Sunday November 4th at 3pm in church. The service is an opportunity to reflect on those who are dear to us but no longer with us, and to ask for God's help and comfort. Everyone is welcome, both to the service and for tea and cake in the hall afterwards.
