Curate's Curios (No.37/2022)
Good morning dear friends,
Tomorrow evening from 5.00pm we will be holding our fabulous Christmas Market.
Please do come along and enjoy:
Stalls inside and Out
Sausages, Mulled Wine and Home Made Cakes
Christmas goodies and gifts
Adult and Children Tombola and Grand Raffle
and much more
All proceeds go to support the mission and work of your church.
One of the various outreach projects we are involved with here at Hornsey Parish Church is to be a 'Safe Space' for anyone who may be experiencing domestic abuse.
1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced domestic or sexual abuse.
The United Nations' 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence and Abuse is taking place from 25th November until 10th December.
Mothers' Union, of which we have a branch here in Hornsey are supporting this important campaign in raising awareness of and calling for an end to gender-based violence and abuse in all forms in all societies. For more information please visit: www.mothersunion.org/global-day-2022
To find out more about our safe spaces or to get involved in our local Mothers Union, please contact me.

From now on you will notice more and more Christmas adverts on your screens and decorations in our homes and on our streets as we prepare our homes and offices for Christmas
You are warmly invited to also prepare your heart for Christ's arrival in our lives by taking part in one or both of our Advent discipleship courses (see Blog below or contact a member of the Ministry Team for further information)
All of these preparations and planning are just a small reminder of the preparations and plans that God made to come into the world in Jesus.
All our traditions, plans, decorations, and actions remind us that the bright, shining light of his Love had been planned since the dawn of Creation.
Throughout the centuries, prophets and messengers announced this Good News, making us ready.
And when the time was right, God entered into our world. Not to scold us for everything we've done wrong, but to love us and forgive us.
I sincerely hope that you will have the chance to join us online or in person this Advent and Christmas. Come as you are - you will be most welcome!
With my love and prayers,
