We need one another as a community more than ever. So please stay in touch. Pick up the phone, go online, take a walk to the river and make connections with your neighbours (at a safe distance.)
CURRENTLY RUNNING COMMUNITY PROJECTS
Community Cafe - Thursdays 10-12am in Church from 7 October
As much coffee/tea as you like and a slice of cake for £1! Spread the word about this unbeatable deal - and come along.
Daily Bread - We are baking bread as a gift to all parishioners – working our way round street by street. You can help by offering to join the baking team or providing ingredients – we need strong bread flour (white and wholemeal) and 500g pots of plain natural yoghurt.
Could you help by doing some bread baking in Church? Please let Simon Wethered know if you can help.
Foodbank - Many people in our borough depend on Foodbanks. We will next be delivering Foodbank donations to the collection centre at HOPE CHURCH HOUNSLOW (the newly formed combination of St Paul's Hounslow West and Good Shepherd Church) on Wednesday 13 October. If you would like to contribute, there is a collection container for Foodbank donations in the North East porch of the Church where you can leave non-perishables and toiletries. Or drop donations off to Sue White at 24 Elmwood Rd. Most wanted items include tinned meat, fish and fruit. Thank you so much.
Visiting by phone - Befriend someone who is housebound or lonely. To find out more contact the Vicar.
Get involved and help make a difference in our community.

Get involved by coming to Church
Expect to find a diverse range of people, biblically-based preaching, beautiful music and a friendly welcome.
Get involved by doing something
We are all different and have different gifts and that is something to rejoice in.
One of the best ways to get connected at Church is to find a way to get involved.
Here are some things you might be interested in:
• Greeting and welcoming people at the start of our services
• Music - singing in the Choir or playing a musical instrument
• Reading from the Bible in Church
• Training to lead us in prayer in Church
• Serving teas and coffees after the service
• Flower arranging
• The Hounslow Winter Night Shelter Project for the Homeless
Just let the Vicar know and she will put you in touch with the right person to find out more.
