During the Telegraph Hill Festival, St Catherine's Church is once again hosting a special Festival Sunday which this year, we're calling PLASTIC SUNDAY, on Sunday 18th March.
During the Festival there will be several events focusing on what we can do to protect our precious planet. At a time when the whole nation has been challenged about reducing plastic we too want to respond and re-commit ourselves to doing more to reduce our use of plastics, some of which ends up in our oceans, killing sea life and endangering our precious eco-system.
We are asking everyone in our community who is coming on to the Festival Sunday to do three simple things:
During the service we will take up an offering of bottles and display them as a public act of commitment to care for our world. Who knows we may get up to 200 unique messages in a bottle!
During the service, the children will be doing an art workshop building a plastic sea monster!
All are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.

Welcome to our church
We are a warm and friendly church with a really diverse congregation in every way imaginable.
We are very local – linked with a myriad of things in this community. But also very global – we represent at least ten different countries and dozens of languages.
Our worship is traditional with a small ‘t’ but with an informal feel. There’s reverence, thoughtfulness and laughter in near about equal measure.
There's a place for everyone at St. Catherine's, whether you are a committed Christian or right on the edges of faith. St Catherine’s is your local Anglican church whether you have just moved into the neighbourhood or have lived here for years.
St Catherine’s strives to be welcoming, inclusive and faithful. We hope you feel at home.
Our regular services at the church are:
One Big Push
Just £8,000 meets our fund-raising target
I'm having such a blast at the Festival. I cried my eyes out on Saturday night at the Community Show and laughed my socks off at the Comedy Improv night on Monday. I'm loving the art installation in the church grounds and all the thinking we're doing around reducing our use of plastic.
But I wanted to briefly take the opportunity to highlight our fundraising drive (see page 7 of the Festival programme) and ask you for one last push. We need just under £8K to meet our Fundraising Target and set the Centre on a brilliant financial footing.
£8K is a lot for one person. But if 80 people responded to this message and gave £100 we'd do it. We'd love to reach our £30K target by 1st April. Could you help us do that?
All you have to do is go to http://bit.ly/LoveTelegraphHill and make your donation, taking care to ensure that we are able to claim Gift Aid when you are prompted on this.
All good wishes,
