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.
In a slight change to the normal schedule, we are holding April’s Midweek Monthly Meal this coming Tuesday, 17 April.

All are welcome.
This coming Tuesday, we are marking the start of Lent by having a pancake party, followed by a short Ash Wednesday service.
