Dear People & Friends of St. Clement’s,

My Weekly Message this week needs to start with an

Urgent Reminder!

Our St. CLEMENT`S AWAY WEEKEND at Janske Lazne, planned for the 16th _18thNovember, is in danger of being cancelled if we don`t have at least 20 people booked by this Sunday. So please sign up to come on the sheet on the noticeboard at the back of the church now. Just to remind you what you`ll be getting….

A fun and relaxing weekend, for singles, couples and families, exploring the idea of `FINDING THE WAY`- :in a Quiz, a Workshop, the calm evening services of Vespers or Compline, the music of Taize, and a Monster Treasure Hunt. We`ll be staying in the delightful residence `Sola Fida`,where all rooms have private facilities, in the middle of this charming Spa resort set in the picturesque Krkonose Mountains.

Inclusive prices for accommodation and board from Friday dinner to Sunday Lunch: Adults; 1000Kc, Children 3 to 15yrs; 750Kc, Infants; 100Kc (bedding only)

If you want to come but will, for some reason, not be at Church this coming Sunday morning, please email our Treasurer, Gordon Truefitt gordontruefitt(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)uk by Saturday evening.

Two more news items

I’ve had the following message from Jakub Vopelak of the Salvation Army following the collection of the wheelie bin full of tinned food from Church on Friday 19th October.

“Thank you and your congregation for continuing support Prague’s homeless hand in hand with The Salvation Army”.

Earlier this week, we had two empty wheelie bins returned to Church. One is again for tinned food – basically any food item in a tin but NOT sauces, pasta, or other dried goods in packets or plastic bottles. The second is for warm winter clothes – in particular, hats, scarves, gloves, socks and underwear, for both men & women. I would love us to be able to fill both wheelie bins during November so they can be collected and the contents be used by the Salvation Army in their work with homeless men & women in Prague.

Also at the back of Church this coming Sunday and on Sunday 11th November, Remembrance poppies will be available in return for a donation to the annual Poppy Appeal raising funds to help injured ex-servicemen & women & bereaved relatives.

Our worship during November

Yesterday was All Saints’ Day, and our liturgical calendar therefore moves from counting Sundays after Trinity to counting Sundays before Advent. The period between All Saints’ Day and the First Sunday of Advent is observed in the Anglican tradition as ‘a time of celebration and reflection on the reign of Christ in earth and heaven’ Seasonal notes from ‘Common Worship-Daily Prayer‘. Therefore..

Sunday 4th November at 11.00 – Sung Eucharist for the Fourth Sunday before Advent

Our readings this Sunday are Deuteronomy 6. 1-9 where part of what is often known as ‘Our Lord’s summary of the Law’ is first found; Hebrews 9. 11-14 which continues our series of readings from this interesting letter; and Mark 12. 28-34 where Jesus gives his ‘Summary of the Law’ including quoting from Deuteronomy 6. There will be parallel Children’s Ministry & the service will be followed by Coffee Hour in the hall on the third floor of Klimentská 18.

Tuesday 6th November 18.30-20.00 – Midweek Study & Fellowship

Our regular Midweek Study & Fellowship meetings continue in the small meeting room on the first floor of Klimentská 18. At the request of one regular member of the group, I’m going begin tackling the Book of Job and the theme of why good people suffer, which runs through the book. Quite a challenge I know! But then I did ask for suggestions 🙂

And some advance dates for your diaries
