Fr Christian writes:  Welcome to our Parish website.   I hope you can find what you are looking for.

Please remember in your prayers this week our ten young parishioners who made their First Holy Communion on Pentecost Sunday. They are Jesse Dawson-Asaam, Tala Dean, Aoife Hadland, Olivia Kelly, Victoria Kopcynska-Walsh, Nathan Maroni, Michaella Merryman, Dean Onakinor, Faith Porter and Gabriel Riches Foot. All our communicants worked very hard as they prepared to receive the Blessed Sacrament for the first time. Many thanks to their families who supported them and to Angela and Geraldine for all their work.

The repairs to the church heating system have now been completed and it obviously had an effect on the weather! Just as the work finished, the sun shone and the outside temperature started rising. Hopefully we can look forward to more fine weather before we need to have the heating on full blast again. The main part of the work involved installing a new copper pipe just below the windows. If you look up you can see it quite clearly. It isn’t a modernist architectural feature but an economic decision. Removing the old pipe would have involved a considerable amount of extra work and expense and caused considerable disruption for several weeks.

We have recently added an extra page to this website to explain what has happened to the church heating and what is being done to put it right.  We are also planning a series of fund raising events to help pay for the repairs.  The first, a Cabaret Evening, was held last weekend and proved a great success raising over £500, so many thanks to all those who helped, performed and supported it.  Keep an eye on the newsletter for details of future events.

If you are just passing through Bexley and are checking out Mass times please come and say hello and if you are attending 10.30 Mass on Sunday come and join us for coffee in the hall afterwards

Gradually more information about activities here at St John Fisher are being added to the website although there are still gaps and we hope, perhaps with your help, to fill these over the coming months.

Since the site started, three years ago, we have tried to brighten-up the pages with photographs of the church flowers as well as some of the events. We have also experimented with sound files and a video. To celebrate the first birthday we “redecorated” by experimenting with some different styles and layouts and would welcome your opinions.

You might be interested to know that we have had more than 4,000 visits to the site during the past year, with the number of people taking a look each week gradually increasing. Visitors have come from various countries including the United States, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and Nigeria.

Please let us know what you think about the site and if you have any information or ideas that could be included please let us know by sending an email to our site editor: admin@stjohnfisherbexley.org

And just in case I haven’t mentioned it already! for the latest information on what is happening in the parish please check the Newsletter page which is updated every week.
