someone, you are entitled to a hour's help in return.
It is about people helping each other and sharing
skills. The services the Waterloo Time Bank offers are
wide and varied: conversational English, Spanish,
Chinese, Japanese, gardening and more. The Waterloo
Time Bank believes everyone has skills, talents,
experiences which go unrecognised and un-rewarded, so
please do not hide your talents.
Bring a friend and introduce them to the Waterloo Time
Bank. Children welcome. Food and drink, raffle and
quiz.

Lisa Wright was a drama teacher in a large inner-city
comprehensive for more than thirty years before
becoming a Church of England priest. In September 1953
she set off fresh from college to teach in the USA. Her
mother Margot wrote to her every week for two and a
half years. Come and spend a happy hour hearing these
racy, vivid, candid tales. Parish life and vicarage
life of fifty years ago and an East End social scene
gone forever. As seen at last year's Edinburgh
Festival.

ECUMENICAL THOMAS MASS AT SOUTHWARK CATHEDRAL
Sunday 30 January
6.30pm at Southwark Cathedral, London Bridge
Map: http://quicklink.se1direct.co.uk/?id=874
The Thomas Mass is a form of the Eucharist which seeks
to reach out to those who doubt, those who have no
belief but want to know more and those who believe but
are still on their journey of faith. Whilst following
the usual order, the service is intended to allow more
time for contemplation, reflection and prayer and
depends for its success on the participation of
the congregation. This is an ecumenical event with the
congregations of the  Norwegian, Finnish, and Swedish
Churches in London and of St George's Roman Catholic
Cathedral Southwark. Celebrant: Fr Helge Pettersson.
Preacher: Fr Phillip Nelson, chaplain to Digby Stuart
College.
