Paul's June Blog

Paul covers his love/hate view of Eurovision Song Contest, Madonna's performance and her subsequent Youtube version, asking if we could, would we like to re-engineer parts of our lives and pleading for everyone to be accepted just as they are, warts and all.

Summer Breakfasts

Big Brunch

Big Brunch has taken a break during the summer but we are planning 'A Breakfast Extravaganza' on both Saturday, 27th July and Saturday 17th August. All proceeds will go towards church funds so please put these dates in your diary and come along. Big Brunch is back in September.


Come and chat

As you may know, we have spent more than we would have liked to recently because of defects in the building. First was the soggy Coffee Lounge floor which, after a couple of expensive false starts, we now seem to have a solution which is working.

We are now in the middle of trying to fix leaks in the 1930's plumbing in the hall where a few exploratory holes have been drilled. Our main problem here is we don't know where the pipes run but we are in the process of trying to map out the circuit.

All this costs money which is why we have joined the "easyfundraising" scheme where, by shopping online via one of over 3,500 retailers, those retailers will donate a percentage of the sale to our fund at no cost to the shopper or to ourselves.

For more information and to join the scheme please go to our Fundraising web page.

Merton Citizens

Merton Citizens is an alliance of 17 faith, education and community institutions working together for the common good. Over the past year members have spoken to over 9,000 local people to identify the issues that we care about and deternmine what needs to change.

We are looking within our church for a Mental Health Champion for which training will be given. Could that be you? If you want to know more then please Contact Us.

Christian Care

Christian CARE is a charity working in the London Borough of Merton. They are a group of 40 volunteers from 16 different churches offering help to anyone whatever their race, colour or religion.
