Up Periscope!

On Sunday 14 August the 9.45am service at St John's was broadcast live over the Internet as part of the @ChurchLive project with the CofE nationally.

There were a couple of broadcasts. The first to welcome people which you can see here: 

The main service had between 30 and 50 people with us all the time and overall some 1,700 people watched part of the service live.

Well Walked Harvey and Sion!

And so, after five days, 84 miles (+ a bit extra), two dioceses, numerous blisters, and several costume changes, Sion Hughes-Carew and I finally made it to the end of Hadrian's Wall.

Thank you so very much to all of you who have encouraged us in this endeavour (particularly the Revd Georgiana Heskins who joined us for the final 15 mile slog and helped ensure we made it to Newcastle Cathedral in time for Mass), who have prayed for us (and our feet), and who have donated to SANE handing us cash or via our JustGiving page, https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/SionandHarvey (Donations are still being accepted.) We are ever so grateful. And sore. But  still hugely  grateful.
Setting off at Bowness

and a mile into the walk

And the wall goes on and on...

 On Green Slack - the highest point on the wall.
Stylish even in the wet

 We reach Wallsend - time for a rest.

Two x 100

Two St John's people completed the Prudential 100 today.

Andy Down, riding for Kings College Hospital, finished in an amazing 5:47

The Vicar, riding for the Mothers Union, took a little longer 
(and blames it on not having shaved his legs this year)

Ramblers' visit

It was our pleasure to welcome the Havering and East London Ramblers group as they passed by St John's today. They are completing the London Loop in stages, and we were delighted to offer them refreshment along their way.
