Breaking News and Update on our Church Reopening

Dear Friends,

How have you all been keeping throughout a difficult past few months? Our prayers as a Church are forever with you all.

On Saturday 27th June we re-opened our doors for private prayer and are pleased with the outcome. A big “thank you” to those who came out to help prepare the Church, those who came out to supervise the sessions and those who turned up to say prayers. We will continue opening for private prayer on Saturdays from 10 AM to 1 PM until further notice.

Public Worship: Now that the government has given the green light for us to resume public
Worship in our Church buildings from 4th July, and following the Bishop of London’s Ad Clerum
(Letter) to parishes in which she welcomes this, we as a Church have some decisions to make
about how we do this safely. It will not be business as usual when we return as we will still be
expected to work within the government’s guidelines (says the House of Bishops). Personal
safety is our priority. The House of Bishops have reminded us that we should not feel
obligated to rush to restart public worship on 4th July, if we are not quite ready. With that being said, we want to ensure that we do not delay resuming public worship unnecessarily.

My prayer as the Parish Priest is that all our anxieties and worries that we might be holding about returning to Church for public worship, will be quietened by the all consuming love, peace and protection of God Almighty; the one in whom we 'live, move and have our being.'

Every blessing.

Fr Staffan Dawkins

The Feast of two great Apostles - St Peter and St Paul – Monday 29th June 2020

Peter has often been called the 'Prince of the Apostles' because of the words of Jesus re-naming him, from Simon to Cephas. This was the Aramaic form of the Greek word Peter, which means 'rock'. Jesus said that on this rock he would build his Church. But both Peter and Paul came to be seen as having different rôles to play within the leadership of the Church: Peter in witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and Paul in developing an understanding of its meaning for Christ's followers. Peter and Paul have been remembered jointly on this day since the very early days of the Church, it being regarded as the anniversary of their martyrdom in Rome in about the year 64. (Exciting Holiness)

Their significance to us was understood by Metropolitan Andrew Sheptytsky, who wrote, “All that we have, we owe to their apostolic labours and prayers….

Collect for St Peter and St Paul
Almighty God, whose blessed apostles Peter and Paul glorified you in their death as in their life: grant that your Church, inspired by their teaching and example, and made one by your Spirit, may ever stand firm upon the one foundation, Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Prayer for the day

A prayer for the world

God of love and hope,
you made the world and care for all creation,
but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists,
and all who are working to discover the right medicines
to help those who are ill.
Thank you that even in these anxious times,
you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe.
Amen.

Collect for Trinity Sunday

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us your servants grace,
by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity
and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
keep us steadfast in this faith, that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

PRAYER FOR ALL THOSE AFFECTED BY CORONAVIRUS

Our Food Cupboard
- foodbank-no-background.png

In 1997 St Paul’s Church experienced an increasing number of callers at the Vicarage, asking for food. This led to the vicar at the time, Fr Mark Elliot-Smith, making an appeal to the congregation for donations of items of food and toiletries. The response was overwhelming, and this led to the setting up of what was then called and up until recent months, the “Deacons’ Cupboard”. This was tied to the role of the Deacon, who in their year of transition to the priesthood, would be responsible for not just assisting with worship in Church, but for pastoral care and outreach into the community? Although, all ordained clergy remain Deacons for life, it was felt that this service to the community should now be called “St Paul’s Food Cupboard”. It makes more sense to everyone and “it does exactly what it says on the tin” – no pun intended.

There is no qualification criteria and anyone can simply turn up and ask for a package of food. We are opened several times a week (please see worship schedule), so please feel free to turn up during one of those times and we will be happy to serve you.

As part of our community outreach and as congregation members continue to donate food and toiletries, we commit to donating some of this food to the Tottenham Food Bank who provide food for many families on a weekly basis.
