A welcoming and international community centred around a devotional life rich in worship, prayer and music
The Church Wardens write:

In light of Government advice, the Bishop of London has asked all churches to close. It is with great regret that we are therefore unable to open for worship or private prayer until further notice.

A weekly live prayer group on Zoom takes place on Wednesdays at 7pm (please join our mailing list as login details are sent by e-mail each week).

Sunday School is running online on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCx8zCIRC11ELqLP8ACZwgQ

    Sunday (12 July)…

    is the Fifth Sunday after Trinity. In the Gospel reading, we have Jesus telling the famous Parable of the Sower, where He likens us either to seeds which do not bear fruit or those which do. Of the former, he lists those who do not understand the word, those who fall away when trials arise because of the word, and those who pay more attention to the cares and riches of the world than to the word. I hope that none of us might succumb to the fate of these ‘bad seeds’ and there are things we can actively do to try and avoid it. We can set time aside to pray and read Scripture (the readings for each week are on our website and our prayer group meets each Wednesday evening online), we can stand up for our faith in the face of opposition, and we can focus more on the spiritual than the material. In the reading from Romans, Paul tells us that “to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace”. Many during the pandemic have said that they have learnt to appreciate what’s truly important and realised that many of their worldly cares are trivial, and that money can’t buy you a ticket out of Coronavirus! I pray that these lessons will be taken into post-lockdown life and that we may all lead fruitful lives.

    Now that Fr Gerald has gone to Estonia, our virtual prayer group will be led by our Youth and Children’s Worker, Ramond Mitchell. Steve Phillips will continue to provide music on guitar.

    Sunday (5 July)…

    is the Fourth Sunday after Trinity. In this week’s Gospel reading, we have the famous line from Matthew 11:28 when Jesus says, “Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. I imagine more than a fair few of us are desperate for rest at the moment, fatigued by Zoom calls, unchanging daily routine, and office life encroaching on home life (and vice versa if you have kids probably!). I do hope some of you may be able to get some physical rest soon (now that we are able to stay away from home again!), but also be able to rest in Christ. Many at the start of lockdown appreciated the extra free time it afforded, some of which could be given over to time with God. If you managed to do so, try and keep this up even as restrictions ease. Several churches are now open for private prayer and/or do join our Wednesday evening online prayer sessions. For if you take your burdens to God, He will give you His peace.

    WORSHIP

    Fr Gerald safely arrived in Tallinn on Friday and can finally start to enjoy his retirement!
