Welcome!!
We are an Anglican (Church of England) Church, in the Diocese of London, situated within the Haringey Deanery. Our Worship is set within the Anglo-Catholic Tradition, designed to meet the needs of everyone across the broad spectrum of the Anglican Church. We have been closed during part of lock-down three and we are currently in the process of re-opening St Paul's for public worship. Face coverings are mandatory in all parts of the church buildings and must be worn throughout the service. You are allowed to remove your face covering only to receive the Holy Sacrament (in one kind only).

Annual Parochial Church Council Meeting 2021

Our Annual Meeting will take place on Sunday 16th May 2021 in Church and via Zoom. The first meeting, which is called a vestry meeting, is at 12:30 pm, when we will elect one Churchwarden to serve alongside our current and only Churchwarden, for the next 3 years. The second begins at 12:45 pm and will be the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.

In preparation for the meetings, the Electoral Roll will be reviewed and any amendments and additions made. See our notice board for a copy of this notice. We are keen to widely publicise the renewal. If you are new to St Paul's Church in the past year and would like to become a registered voter, please email stpaulstottenham@gmail.com for an application form. If you are already on the Electoral Roll you do not need to do anything this time, unless you would like to make changes to the details we already have for you.

May God continue to bless you all.

On behalf of the Parochial Church Council

Prayer for the Day

Prayer for the Day

Merciful God,
your Son came to save us
and bore our sins on the cross:
may we trust in your mercy
and know your love,
rejoicing in the righteousness
that is ours through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

A Prayer for Afghanistan, Haiti, St Vincent:

O merciful Father, who have taught us in your holy Word that you do not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men: Look with pity upon the sorrows of the people of Afghanistan, Haiti & St Vincent, for whom our prayers are offered. Remember them, O Lord, in mercy, nourish their souls with patience, comfort them with a sense of your goodness, lift up your countenance upon them, and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer)

Our New Outreach Project - St Paul's At Work (SPAW)

Food and Care Pantry

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? Some months ago, our current Parish Priest, Fr Staffan Dawkins felt that this project needed to evolve given the extent of need now present in our communities, not least the devastating impact Covid has had on the lives of the poorest.

After much conversation among the Parochial Church Council, we launched our new Charitable Initiative (St Paul’s At Work) on 4th October 2020 at our 10:30 am Harvest Parish Mass. All items donated at our Harvest service were stocked into the pantry, with the help of the SPAW team of volunteers. All subsequent donations will go towards helping those with a genuine need.

The response to this well needed service to the community has been overwhelming. We are now having to make weekly appeals for donations of food, toiletries, personal hygiene items, children's clothing and toys.

St Paul’s At Work in Partnership with the online Charity Acts 435

St Paul's have decided to partner with Acts 4:35 because we believe in their ethos which is about, directly connecting those who want to give with those who are in genuine need of their help, through a network of local churches and charities.

Check https://acts435.org.uk/ to find out how this wonderful Charity works through Churches like St Paul’s.

St Paul’s At Work with You Recycle for Free Cycle

Anyone can Free Cycle at St Paul’s Church by placing an Advert on our notice board or in our weekly newsletter with pic of item. If anyone is in need of anything, for example, second hand furniture or appliance they can make a request by speaking to the Vicar or a member of the Church who will ensure the request gets published and if there are any donors, we will facilitate arrangements between donor and recipient for transfer of items. Unfortunately we are unable to store items of furniture and appliances at in our building so arrangements will need to be made to collect items in person from donors.

There is no qualification criteria and anyone can simply turn up and ask for a food and care parcel or ask for information about how to access or use any of our projects. We are opened several times a week (please see worship schedule). But we now have a dedicated day for parcels collection or donations on Fridays between from 9 - 11 am. Please feel free to turn up during one of those times and we will be happy to serve you. The hope is that once we are able to and Covid behind us, we will be able to invite people in for refreshment and conversation, as they collect their parcels.

The Coleraine Lunch Club – The First Wednesday of Every Month from 12:45 pm to 2:45 PM.

The Coleraine Club is a luncheon club that started at St. Paul's on 15th November 2000. It was funded by a Millennium Grant which paid for a commercial cooker, a newly fitted kitchen and pots and pans.

It is open to anyone and we feed between 24 – 30 people; this is the maximum we can cater for. We provide a main course, a sweet and a hot drink for £3 which covers our expenses.
It takes place on the first Wednesday of every month, at 12:45pm to 2:45pm.

Spotlight Women’s Group – We Meet Every Third Thursday of the Month Spotlight Mixed Chair based Exercise Group – Every Thursday from 11:30am – 12:30pm

Spotlight Women’s Group was formed over ten years ago, by members from the congregation at St Paul's Church Tottenham. Over the years it has been extended to local churches, with the aim of building stronger relationships across the wider community.

They support joint activities sponsored by the church, as well as providing a means for circulating information on health, diet, social and physical welfare. They invite professionals of these important issues to speak on various topics, and have workshops that help and promote health and well-being.

The group also run a weekly chair based mixed exercise class for the community. They also host an annual fundraising dinner & dance evening, donating funds to our church, and to our neighbouring church, St Mary's from which some of their members come.

The group also donate to a charity of their choice. i.e.: Cancer Research, Lupus and Sickle Cell. The group meetings take place in the church hall on the third Thursday of every month, and the priest is always welcome to join the meetings at any time.
