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

Lent, Holy Week and Easter 2020 Newsletter

Lent, Holy Week and Easter 2020

We are happy to be able to launch the first of our brand new St Paul’s, Tottenham Newsletter. What better time to launch than now, when we are preparing for

that wonderful Easter Mystery in that horrifying but triumphant story of the Passion , Death and Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, at Easter.

But, before we get there—the Church observe a period of Lent, a season of reflection and prepa- ration before the celebration of Easter. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (26th February). This season of reflection and preparation is usually marked in different ways in different churches and at St Paul’s Church, we have a number of ways in which we do this. We will have our regular bible study on a Thursday; we participate in Churches Together in Tottenham (CTT) Lent Studies; we open the church doors for quiet days and prayer and we will have the Stations of the Cross, and this is when we “walk the way of the Cross.” Together as Christians, we follow Jesus on that journey to the Cross and we pause and pray and sing a hymn along the way.

We hope you enjoy this issue and please do let us have your feedback. This is still a work in progress.

Fr. Staffan

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.

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.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

PRAYER FOR ALL THOSE AFFECTED BY CORONAVIRUS
