LINKS TO LOCAL COMMUNITY ORGANISATIONS
We very much value our links with the local Schools, especially St. Andrew's Junior School where Revd Tim, our Priest, is Deputy Chair of Governors, and The Totteridge Academy where he is also a Governor. We invite all the local Schools to display work in our Annual Art Show, which they and we, much enjoy.
This year our Easter Art Fair will be from May 1st - 3rd. 10am -6pm
St. Andrew's C of E VA Primary School
St. Andrew’s School is a Church of England Primary school with strong links with St. Andrew’s Church. The ethos of the school reflects its Christian connection, with a Mission to nurture, inspire and educate the children within a Christian framework.
A small but vibrant school situated directly on the village green in Totteridge, there is a strong family orientated atmosphere where there are always exciting activities taking place. The pupils come to the Church twice a term for special festivals and Revd Tim takes assemblies in the school once a week, which is always a real pleasure.
Parents who plan to use active membership of our church as criteria for application need to come to services at least once a month in the 12 months prior to submitting an application form and to sign the book in the church foyer each time as evidence of their attendance.
The Totteridge Academy
The Totteridge Academy is a non-selective, co-educational, Senior community School where they aim to provide a high quality education in a safe, caring and disciplined environment, so that pupils are equipped to become responsible citizens in a scientific, technological and international community. This means pupils, staff, parents and guardians, governors, the local authority and the wider community working together to provide the best opportunities possible, in an environment in which our students will be able to flourish. We seek to provide quality teaching and a rich educational experience for our pupils that will help them succeed in the global employment market.

Maddie, our lovely administrator Sarah’s daughter, has created this brilliant:
FUN CHESS COURSE FOR KIDS!
If you have children at home looking to learn something new, she’s selling it both for a bit of extra pocket money, but also to give 50% of anything she makes to
Herts Young Homeless,
a charity based in Hertfordshire, which provides support and practical help for young homeless people, and those at risk of becoming homeless. It’s fun, interactive and informative, and is aimed at 7-10 year old’s, although it may be suitable for others too (we enjoyed it!). A chess board at home is not necessary for the course.
The course is £8 (£4 per sale donated to Herts Young Homeless) and comes in .pdf format.
It can also be personalized (at no extra cost) with your children(s) names! in the documents (but not the videos).
Email email@example.com if you’d like to buy,
We bought it for our grandchildren and they love it!
Further to our Together in Barnet's Guest Homeless staying in our Parish Hall, please read the below letter from Amanda, with her urgent request for volunteers. Maybe some of our older teenagers and younger people might be willing to volunteer to help:
Dear Together in Barnet volunteer
Firstly, thank you for all your support. Together in Barnet still have a massive amount of work to do to support the Barnet Homeless community that are now in temporary accommodation. To this end we are now working even more closely with our partner charity Homeless Action in Barnet (“HAB”) to create a support network for all of the people who have recently been housed.
This is a large undertaking and in order to do this and to be able to swiftly react to the rapidly changing situation we now need, even more than ever, to call on our resource of amazing volunteers. Therefore, we need your help.
If you are willing to volunteer to help us, please can you urgently provide the following information to Amanda Weiss (Operations Manager of Together in Barnet) firstname.lastname@example.org .
1. First Name
3. Mobile number (landline if no mobile)
4. Email address
5. Which Shelter venue or volunteer community are you associated with
6. Consent to be added to the Together in Barnet database
7. Consent for your information to be passed to Homeless Action in Barnet who are coordinating logistics
We require this information to allow us to quickly deploy willing and able volunteers where they are needed the most. This is a very fluid situation and the type of help needed will change depending on what is required.
Thank you for your continued support.
Best wishes and stay safe.
The coronavirus outbreak threatens not only to jeopardise the health of a region, but of the world. It has shown us that our futures are bound more tightly together than ever before.
In times of crisis, more so than any other time, it is the poorest, most vulnerable and marginalised who are at greatest risk. We must respond quickly.
The poorest will be worst affected
Christian Aid’s response
We're responding now
Currently, over 850,000 Rohingya refugees live in crammed camps in Cox’s Bazar district, making them very vulnerable to coronavirus.
It is at times like these – testing times – that we recognise we are all in this together. Coronavirus impacts all of us, but love unites us all.
We urgently need your help to support our response to the coronavirus pandemic. Please give what you can today.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Please take care, be safe, and be wise – and let’s all put others
ahead of ourselves.
Go with God and may the peace of the Lord be with you all
Our very best love to you all,
Rev. Tim & Mrs. Vicar
