The Thanet St Planet

What's happening at the ILSC and around London

We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.

ILSC + anywhere

Looking for something?

Last week, our very own Giulia's Museum Studies MA course launched their online exhibition which they had been working on since January: 'Its all about games and how they connect us. The parts about ancient Egypt are the parts that I (Giulia) worked on. There is the online exhibition as well as activities to further engage with the material.' So go ahead and get playing! (that's an order from Giulia and her lecturers).
Let's Play!


A different kind of ILSC?

Sadly, we all know that the ILSC housing is closing down at the end of June. The residents are who the ILSC is and we will greatly miss this unique community. However, there may be an opportunity for the chaplaincy to continue working in Bloomsbury and creating a 'community centre' for students studying in London. I would like to hold a meeting with ILSC residents (past and present) and friends of the ILSC to hear what you think this kind of new place could be? What are the best bits of the ILSC that we can continue to provide for students in a new way? If you would be interested in taking part, please contact Pastor Sarah.
ILSC in the future?

ILSC Book Club

This month we're reading The Children of Men by P.D. James. The year is 2021. No child has been born for twenty-five years.  Under the despotic rule of Xan Lyppiat, the Warden of England, the old are despairing and the young cruel. Theo Faren, a cousin of the Warden, lives a solitary life in this ominous atmosphere. That is until a chance encounter with a young woman leads him into contact with a group of dissenters. Suddenly his life is changed irrevocably, as he faces agonising choices, which could affect the future of humanity.
Join us on Tuesday 2 June at 1pm to share our thoughts  - whether you've read the whole book or just a little, we all have something to share!

Mental Health Awareness Week

Next week is Mental Health Week and the theme is KINDNESS! 'Kindness unlocks our shared humanity and is central for our mental health. It has the potential to bring us together with benefits for everyone, particularly at times of great stress.' Take a look at the resources for this week or start some conversations about mental health - just starting the conversation can be an important act of kindness!
