Christians do not celebrate Halloween : The Bible says that people involved in witchcraft and other similar things will not possess the Kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21). It can be difficult for children if all their friends are going to a party, so we have made arrangements with Highway Vineyard Church and Hope Church Newham, and St. John's members are welcome at special events with a Christian theme they are running on 31st October. Contact Carol for further details.

Confirmation : The Confirmation Service is on Sunday 3rd November at 18:30 here at St. John's. We have a very large group of candidates this year - please pray for them over the coming weeks. If you're able to help with refreshments after the Service by providing some small cakes or similar, please contact Pat Larocque.

Remembrance Sunday: 10th November : The Special Service in the morning starts at 10:45 so we can observe the traditional 2 minutes' silence during the Service at 11:00. This is to remember many service people who have given their lives in wars since 1914 - it is not to celebrate war, but to honour those who died and to pray for peace. Poppies will be available next Sunday.
