A Message from Father Staffan on Covid-19

Dear Friends,

It is with great reluctance I announce that, following the recent Coronavirus outbreak and subsequent Government announcement and The London College of Bishops advice, we have no other option but to suspend public worship at St Paul’s Church, for the time being. From today, there will be no acts of public worship until further notice.

We are told in Ecclesiastes 3:1 that, ‘For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.’ We might be finding the current season challenging but it is season that will not last. This too shall pass; we have the mercy and love of God as our rock and refuge.

Sadly, because of this season, we have had to suspend our regular services and other forms of public gathering, but please take courage in the knowledge that prayer continues at St Paul’s Church 3 times a day, by Fr Staffan, your Parish Priest, and he is still available for pastoral support by telephone. If you need to speak to him please click on the contact link on this page and you will find all the contact details you need there. BT are currently working on a problem on our land line so please ring the mobile.

Every blessing.

Fr Staffan Dawkins

Thy Kingdom Come

Since its start in May 2016, just three and a half years ago, God has grown Thy Kingdom Come from a dream of possibility into a movement. In 2019 Christians from 172 countries took part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.
This praying together has been across our diversity and differences as every person, household and church are encouraged to pray in their own way. Whilst an astonishing 92% of people said they were praying for family and friends to come to faith in Jesus, and 40% of those taking part in 2019 did so for the first time, we recognise there is much more we can do together to help Thy Kingdom Come be fully in the lifeblood of the Church.

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:
• Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ

• Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus

• Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness
After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing.
Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ picks up this tradition. Over the past three and a half years more and more worshipping communities have dedicated the days between Ascension and Pentecost to pray ‘Come Holy Spirit’.

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.

Risen Christ, by the lakeside you renewed your call to your disciples:
help your Church to obey your command and draw the nations to the fire of your
love, to the glory of God the Father.

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.
