Saving the Child ‘Jet Fuel’ Addicts of Kampala, Thurs 2 June, 7-9pm

Photojournalist Guy Smallman will present a slideshow of his work from the slums of Kampala. During two recent visits Guy documented the plight of homeless and orphaned street children addicted to inhaling aviation fuel. A shocking and destructive habit which is sadly prevalent in developing countries. It is however a story of hope, because the children Guy met are being supported and rehabilitated by a local grassroots charity called Peace for Children Africa (PCA). Run by former criminal gang members PCA coaxes the children away from their addiction and off the streets with sporting and...

PENTECOST AT ST JOHN ON BETHNAL GREEN, 10am, Sunday 15 May 2016

Pentecost celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit to Jesus’ disciples following His Ascension after returning to them on Easter Day. It is derived from the Jewish Festival of Weeks – a celebration of the harvest. The growth of the disciples from the frightened group huddling in the Upper Room after Jesus’ arrest, to the confident Apostles ready to go out across the known world preaching Jesus’ message of divine love represents that first harvest for the Church. Come and join with us celebrating this festival with a Sung Mass at 10am.

In the two years since 2014’s elegiac, autobiographical July, Nadler has reconciled the heartbreak so often a catalyst for her songwriting. Turning her writing to more universal themes, Nadler dives deep into a surreal, apocalyptic dreamscape. Her lyrics touch upon the...
