Michael John describes the gift of HOPE in the first part of our #AdventUnwrapped video series.
In the four weeks before Christmas, we ...will be ‘unwrapping’ the four traditional gifts of Advent –hope, peace, joy and love. We have a series of reflections on these gifts with a fresh take on the lives of some of the familiar characters of the nativity story: Zechariah’s steadfast hope; joy from Mary’s cousin, Elizabeth; Joseph’s sacrificial love; and peace – believe it or not – from Herod. We are going to unwrap each gift with reflections, films, imagery and stories and we hope you will get involved too.

Remembering those who died in war for the freedoms that we enjoy; those we've lost and remember; and especially the 80+ lost in Grenfell Tower
We will be reading a list of the names of those who are known to have died in the fire before the minute's silence at 11am.
Happy Reformation Day!
Joining with other churches in learning from the Billy Graham team about how we respond to crises, whether the ordinary crises of life or something on the scale of Grenfell Tower. What should we say? What should we pray? How can we help?
I'm not recommending this!!!
Prayer for the Community
Tonight 6:30pm at St Peter’s Notting Hill (Kensington Park Road) with the Bishop of Kensington
Then 9pm prayer outside Latymer Community Church before the vigil for the whole community at 10pm....
See you later if you can make it! Steve
Today has been a hugely moving story of people from within the community and from miles around rallying together, bringing super-abundant quantities of food and clothing and doing whatever they can to help. We pray that everyone who needs help gets it; that people who are still searching for friends and relatives can get news, for doctors as they tend to the wounded and that we and the other churches of the area can share with people the hope and comfort that is found in Christ. Thanks heaps for joining us in prayer, Steve
Superb article. Many many people feel no "Jesus shaped hole" in their hearts. "If the only gospel we know how to share is “Jesus is the answer” we are going to ...find it rather difficult to share the good news when our neighbor doesn’t have any questions. We’ll have to spend most of our time trying to deflate their tires and make them miserable so that we can show how Jesus is the solution to a problem they didn’t know they had. The Proverbs (and many other places in Scripture) do not present the unbeliever as necessarily miserable, depressed, and grasping to fill an aching void. Instead we read of men “who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil” (Proverbs 2:14)....This is why so many of those who share the gospel in the New Testament do not start with a person’s psychological emptiness but rather with their guilt before a holy God."
