In preparation for the local elections on May 3rd, the Wallington, Surrey Facebook group have arranged for a hustings to take place where local residents can ask questions of representatives from the local parties competing for your 3 votes. The event will be chaired by the Rev. Kevin Lewis from The Church of the Good Shepherd, Carshalton.
There are few local venues with the capacity to hold an event of this nature, and it's good that our beautiful building can be used for a community event such as this.
If anyone would like to assist in stewarding on the night, please get in touch with Andrew Langley.
Sutton Community Works is organising an hour of prayer at Good Shepherd church on 26 April at 7:30 pm. The aim is to pray for local issues including the elections and policing, and how Christians can respond.

We are sorry that our heating system has failed and we are unable to heat the building properly. Part of a wall has now been removed so that new heaters can enter the building, as shown in this photo. We hope that a new heaters will be completed during the next few weeks. The temperature in the building is about 11C at the moment.
We are opening the church to visitors most Tuesdays (except 26 December) from 10:30am to 3pm; the north and south doors, but not the west doors, will be open.

The church council has been told that we have now been given enough money to buy an extra solo trumpet stop for the organ. We are very grateful to everyone who contributed to the cost. The organ builder is now designing the modification, and the pipes are in stock.
Carshalton is part of the Deanery of Sutton, which corresponds roughly to the geographical area of the Borough of Sutton. Every few months there is a meeting of members of the Anglican churches in the Deanery at the Deanery Synod, at which matters of general interest are discussed and representatives on the Diocesan and General Synods are elected. Minutes of the October 2017 Synod meeting are here (82 kB).
