We held # Follow the Star Messy Church at St Mary Magdalene school on Sunday 9th December. We welcomed 42 children, their parents and carers from the peninsula to enjoy Christmas craft activities, a celebration with Christingle and singing followed by a party tea. The theme explored the Christmas nativity story and celebrating Jesus as the Light of the World. Fun was had by all! If you would like to join us at our next messy church please contact Esther on Esther@christchurcheastgreenwich.org.uk
PS. The second Messy Church at Mary Magdalene School was on Sunday 3 February 2019. The theme was "Jesus the Light of the World."
Visitors to Central Park may have noticed a large block of stone, commemorating employees of the East Greenwich gas works who joined up and served together, and died in the war. 17 people attended a pop-up service on Remembrance Sunday, where we laid wreathes and placed small memorial crosses in the ground.
Members of the Holy Trinity and other East Greenwich congregations crossed the river to St Barnabas Church, Manor Park, where Rob Ryan was installed as Priest-in-Charge. St Saviour's is the work of Ninian Comper, one of the last of the great Gothic Revival architects, and has a bus stop named after it.
Rob was vicar of Holy Trinity from 2015 to 2018, and chaplain to four Church of England schools in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
