Christian Aid Week runs this year between Mon 10 -  Sun 16 May.  Find out more HERE

To highlight the plight of those across the world who do not have ready access to clean water, six local clergy will be walking between their churches on each of the six days (Monday - Saturday) carrying two buckets of water.  The route is a bit over 4.5 miles and including Helen and St Matthew's makes it a much longer walk!!!

Also if you would like to accompany Helen on one of these walks (or part of one), then please do get in touch with her.  We can agree a mutually convenient time for any particular day.   

On Sat 15 May we will be finishing the initiative in Clarence St at 12.30pm - do come along and support Christian Aid - more details again from Helen.

Here is an extract from an email we have received from the School Project team

'In January 2021 we sent you details about a four-week representation period/survey on the continuing plans to establish Kingston CofE Secondary School. We remain very grateful for the feedback, contributions and completed surveys then - and please be assured that any feedback you did submit during that period has informed the ongoing plans to establish the secondary school.  

As a result of certain feedback sent to the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames in regard to the four-week representation period that was facilitated in January and February 2021, a new representation period is being held, commencing: Friday 23rd April, 2021.  

Both supportive feedback and any objections can now be (re)submitted direct to the local authority/Kingston Council. Please (re)submit your letter/emails of support by Friday 21 May to Kingston Council via Mr Matthew Paul ( – Associate Director for School Place Planning for Kingston. Correspondence should be denoted: ‘Response to Proposed Kingston C of E Secondary School’. 

There will not be an on-line survey this time or further public e-meetings as all the information about the secondary school has been shared to date and none of the details have changed. 

Further detail and an ability to once again review the Statutory Proposal can be viewed at:  

I sincerely apologise for any time that it might take to resubmit your original feedback. You may wish to refresh or supplement your original feedback of course – feedback that needs to be made direct to Kingston Council via the email address above. '
