Reverse Advent Calendar

This year as a church we are doing a reverse advent calendar and each week (if you can) we are going to choose one item from the list below and bring it to church. We are going to do this all through advent and at Christmas the pastor will take them home and donate them to the local food bank for people in need.

The advice is to get long life items with a long expiration date so the food does not get wasted.

Thank you all in advance

Pentecost – the church’s birthday

Pentecost is not only the birthday of the church generally, but also the birthday of MCC East London, as it first met on Pentecost in 1991 (19 May). This year, Pentecost falls on 20 May. We would like to invite you all to celebrate the birthday of our church, and we will be holding a party after the service on that day. Feel free to bring your friends to our service, starting at 5.30 pm as usual, and party.

Midweek Monthly Meal

This Tuesday, 30 January, is our Midweek Monthly Meal. This time, we will be going to Honest Burgers, at 12 Widegate Street, E1 7HP. If you’re not sure where that is, we will be meeting at 7.30 pm at the Bishopsgate exit from Liverpool Street station – it is a short walk from there. If you’d like to see the menu before you join us, it is at https://www.honestburgers.co.uk/menus/ – we look forward to seeing you there.
