Fr Christian writes:  Welcome to our Parish website. A Happy Easter to you all and a huge thank you to everyone who helped make our Holy Week services so special. It was good to see so many people making that extra effort to attend as we commemorated the Last Supper, the Passion and Death of Christ Our Saviour and his Glorious Resurrection. A particular thanks to all those who played a part in the services – servers, readers, Eucharistic ministers, sacristans, collectors and the choir – and to those who work away behind the scenes throughout the year to ensure the parish runs smoothly
and that the church is clean and tidy.

With Lent over, it is also time to welcome back into the church the flowers. After their six week break, our team of arrangers were hard at work on Friday morning preparing the colourful displays you see in our photographs complete with an Easter bunny. They look even better in real life!

We have recently added an extra page to explain what has happened to the church heating. Although it is working and the church is reasonably comfortable, it is not operating as efficiently as it should and we have just accepted a quote to put it right. Work is due to start in the church on Tuesday April 24th. The contractors expect to be able to complete the main part of the work, installing a new pipe, in just a few days but it will mean that the church will be closed for about three days and services will be cancelled. Keep an eye on the newsletter for the details. In the meantime we are planning various fund raising events with the emphasis on enjoying ourselves as a parish community while we meet the costs of the repair work. Details of forthcoming activities will be on this website and in the newsletter.

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, two 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 2,000 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 three times already! for the latest information on what is happening in the parish please check the Newsletter page which is updated every week.
