Dear Friends
This Thursday (4th) we are joining with local traders as the Christmas Tree is switched on at Light up The Avenue.  Please come and join in the carol singing outside local shops and in the Drayton Court Pub  from 6pm – 7.15pm (note different time to bulletin).  It’s great fun and we even got offered a glass of champagne last year, so you never know!
On Sunday we issued a Getting involved at Christmas flyer – please complete and return it this Sunday so that we can ensure that all the tasks we have to do are covered over the busy Christmas season. It’s always enjoyable when we work together as teams rather than leaving the jobs to just a few.
Our annual Bazaar is on Saturday (6th) from 10.30am to 2.30pm – come along and join in the fun as we seek to raise funds for Ealing Christians against Poverty.
Finally, a reminder that this year we are stepping out in faith and holding two identical Carol Services on Sunday 21st December at 4pm and 6.30pm.  This is to create more space for us all to invite friends and family.  Research shows that many people like to come to a Carol Service even if they don’t go to Church at any other time of year.  Please do be praying about who to invite and then get inviting.  If we all bring one or two guests we will have a full church twice over which would be wonderful!
Wishing you a good Advent as we look towards the coming of the Christ child at Christmas.

With my love

Vicar, St Stephen's Ealing
