St Hilda’s This Week

St Hilda’s is the Church of England
Parish Church of Crofton Park

We are a welcoming and diverse congregation,  enjoying all kinds of people. We offer a rich experience of worship and teaching  in the Church of England’s Catholic (High Church) Tradition, and  enjoy playing our part in our area. Our building is feature Grade 2 Arts and Crafts Structure now 108 years old.

This week, beginning on Palm Sunday 20 March, is Holy Week, the most important week in the Church’s year. Our services and events are in this poster (pdf). Follow the link to donload a copy.

The church is open to visit or for  quiet reflection on Tuesdays, Thursdays and   Fridays from 10.30 -6pm   Saturdays  11 – 5pm   and Sunday 9-12.30 pm  and often on Tuesdays: As we release funds to staff the office we hope to have even more open hours.

Warm Roof  update

The  expense of the project has rocketed  beyond the expected budget. Keep praying as we may be offered a lifeline by the   List places of worship roof fund.  Fr Stuart is working hard behind the scenes to see if we can scheme the project in a way that will enable us to  obtain more  funds. This is very tiring  and stressful  for  keep Fr Stuart in your prayers and try to support everything to your best  of your ability.

Bring your Lent Jars back ASAP

Thanks to everyone who has already brought back your lent jar.  It will be wonderful if  through our Lent fasting  and alms giving we have achieved tour target £583 to buy the nutcracker  for Thabas village . And to have some over for street children in Brazil.
