After a shortened but still very beautiful service of Evensong we will be reading and discussing poetry over a glass of wine. All very welcome, and do bring a poem to read. Our topic is Romantic Poetry (please feel free to interpret broadly - whether the Romantic poets, or the romantic in poetry, or even Romanticism in poetry).

ANOTHER VERY BIG THANK YOU: to all who helped with Kingston's Christian Aid collection, especially Andre, Peter and Hazel, for organising it.

PRAYER FOCUS: for these two months our prayer focus is on Kingsmoor Day Centre, Care for the Family, Prison Fellowship and the Barnabas Fund - charities and missions we support, all doing very valuable work.
