Parish Events in November
All Souls' Day
This Sunday, 6 November, we will mark All Souls' Day. In the morning there will be a service of Choral Mattins at 11am while in the evening we will have Sung Holy Communion using the Karl Jenkins ‘Requiem’ setting. This service offers an opportunity to remember the names of the faithful departed. If you would like someone remembering by name then please do email the parish administrator by Thursday.
Sung Compline by Candlelight
We have been enjoying a good turnout for our new mid-week service of Sung Compline. It has been particularly heartening to see some new faces joining the congregation. Do come along and give it a try. Every Wednesday 1830 followed by hot chocolate or port. If you are interested in helping to lead the singing of the service, please come along at 6pm for a short rehearsal beforehand.
This year Remembrance Sunday falls on 13 November. We shall begin our 11am service outside St. Giles at the earlier time of 10.55am for the Act of Remembrance. The last post this year will be sounded by Trooper Jackson from The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment. The service will then procede inside the church.
Advent Sunday Carol Service followed by Party at The Rectory.
On 27 November the Evensong Choir and Quartet will be leading us in our annual Advent Carol Service by candlelight. Please do come along and bring a friend to this special service of preparation for the season of Advent. After the service, everyone is warmly invited to a party at the Rectory. Groups will be walking over from the church, so if you don't know the way, ask someone who looks like they know where they are going!
Parish Walk to Hampton Court Palace
Looking forward to December, the next parish walk will be on 3 December, when our parish intern, Edward, will be leading a group from Richmond to Hampton Court Palace, concluding with a visit to the palace chapel. A sign up list will be placed at the back of church: if you haven't been on a walk before, do try to come along, they are always good fun and an excellent way to get to know people better.
