To be a Pilgrim... and to have cake, too

Our Chaplain Udo joined the pilgrimage to Canterbury with his family in May. They walked 12.7 miles of the way and raised £567 directly plus £254.90 via a website, so that the work of The Connection at St Martin’s received a combined £821.90. On 3rd April there was a Cake for the Homeless after the Feierabend Club which raised another £130 for the same good cause. Many thanks to all who contributed!


Craven Terrace Community Fayre

The Saturday in June was fun for all guests and a big success for local charities. Our local primary school, a scout group, a holiday scheme for disadvantaged children and PIP (for people with learning disabilities) raised their profile and some funds. The main beneficiary though was the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital. The final donation will be confirmed next time. This year we had some traditional games like splat the rat, boules and skittles, which was a joyful addition for all age groups. Music, food and drinks were good, too. Hope you can make it next year.


Handicrafts for the Christmas Market

We would like to invite you again for crafty Tuesdays in the Brothers Room. If you have, you can bring your ideas and Christmassy craft materials. We’ll start at 10:30 am. Refreshments will be served at lunch time. The sessions will be every Tuesday in October and November, plus one in September. Please sign up with either Udo or Barbara.


Brexit Information Events

Together with the German Embassy and the German Welfare Council we hosted a talk and question time about Brexit on 7 June. It was a packed hall and Herr Loeffler of the Embassy suggested we repeat this in the autumn, hoping for more up to date information being available. So on 8th and 17th October we will have a talk and question time on the subject. We offer more than one opportunity for the same event, so more people can attend and we don’t need to turn anyone away (we hope). If you are interested, put the dates in your diary. The exact times will be in the next programme.


Goodbye Robin

Robin stayed extra-long (in the end it will have been 13 months) with us as part of his Austrian Zivildienst, the civil equivalent of the draft in his home country. He came with a spring in his step and leaves at the end of September having put one into many of our steps. He initiated tea dances at Peter’s Music and he helped Stars & Nightingales with their dance routines. Often Helena joined him, so for Voices in Harmony when many in the audience were brought to their feet. We enjoyed his support and company and wish him all the best, i.e. God’s blessing, on his way!


Welcome Jakob

On 6 September we officially welcome our new volunteer Jakob Fischer from Austria. He is very motivated and looking forward to get to know us and all the activities.
