life ON TOWER HILL
Parish news from All Hallows by the Tower September 2017
Many thanks to Tilly and Evie, two young members of our congregation, who made the video above. It was shown at our special Eucharist for Stewardship Sunday on 3rd September, as we reflected on the ways in which we can give back to God some of the gifts – both in goods and in talents – that he has given us. As the video shows, All Hallows is a special place to many people, and we need the support of all our members to continue our mission here on Tower Hill.
Please look at the stewardship page on our website for more details of how you can donate to All Hallows or help in other ways.
Continuing in our series on the All Hallows team, this month we feature Angie Poppitt, our Operations and Finance Manager. Angie runs the parish office, co-ordinates services and events, manages the church finances and is also PCC Secretary – in other words she is a lynch pin of the organisation and fount of All Hallows knowledge!
‘What I like about the job is its huge diversity’ she says. ‘One minute I might be choreographing our triennial Battle with the Tower of London or wrestling with a cash flow spreadsheet, and the next making tea for a homeless visitor to the church or arranging a guided tour for a U3A group.’
Before coming to All Hallows Angie spent ten years working in politics, organising conferences and seminars as well as dealing with PR and publicity. She had previously worked at St James the Less in Westminster, as well as being involved with a number of different charities, including a stint in Uganda helping to train youth workers.
A happy All Hallows memory is co-ordinating a celebrity chefs’ pancake race soon after she joined, which got good press coverage and helped to raise money for the Sport Relief ‘Run a Mile’ challenge.
Speaking of running, you may have heard that Bertrand our Vicar missed out on this year’s London Marathon owing to injury. The good news is that he is back on track, and will be running the Berlin Marathon on September 24th to raise funds to upgrade parts of our building for community use.
