Remembrance and Candle Lighting for All Souls
Our service on 7 November at 10am will create a space to remember people who have died over the last 18 months, for whom it has been challenging to grieve because of the global pandemic. We will light candles in memory of those who have died. If you would like someone to be remembered by name, please tell us via the parish office, or at our Sunday services.

We also stream a live half hour of prayer every weekday morning at 9am on our Facebook Page.
Giving to St Mary's
Our Giving page explains how to support the mission and ministry at St Mary's including making a donation online. Please prayerfully consider joining the Parish Giving Scheme to become a regular donor, or giving a one-off donation with a credit or debit card.
We had a very successful event at St Mary’s raising awareness of our Eco Church award and a variety of environmental issues ahead of COP26 in Glasgow next month. We were joined by council officers and Ruth Cadbury MP. It was great to hear about eco projects going on in other local groups in Hounslow and Ealing and network together. Our eco angel was a hit. Do continue to have your photo taken and share on social media, using the hashtag #ecoangel. Have a look at the information board at the back of St Mary’s. Our Eco Team will be meeting soon to plan next steps. If you would like to help us achieve the Bronze Eco Church award as we seek to care for God’s creation, join the team. Get in touch with Elis of Fi via the website Contact Us to enquire.
If you would like to play a part in helping us care more for creation as a church, please sign up by contacting Elis, Fi or the Parish Office.
New - Clothing Bank at St Luke's
We are setting up a clothing bank at St Luke's Mission Church. This project will work alongside the foodbank at Hope Church Hounslow in order to provide additional support for refugees and those struggling to afford the basics in life.
We are in the process of setting up a team, and need a mix of welcomers and clothes sorters. Can you help? The clothing bank will open on Tuesdays from 12.45-2.45pm, and we are planning to open it on Tuesday 16th November. (NB: Team members will need to fulfil a DBS Disclosure and undertake safeguarding training)
For more information, see the Volunteer Agreement.
