God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! …
The nations are in chaos,
and their kingdoms crumble!
God’s voice thunders,
and the earth melts!
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us;
the God of Israel is our fortress.

We believe in the good news that Jesus came into this world to enable us to understand that God loves us and wants us to know him as our Father. Jesus gave His life for us to restore that relationship. We would love to share this good news with you and you are welcome at any of our services or events.

Message from Elizabeth
At the moment we face strange and uncertain times as the corona virus continues to spread, resulting in most of the country cancelling social events and older and more vulnerable people being advised to stay at home. In accordance with government guidelines, church services have also been suspended until further notice.
But although services have been closed, worship has not. That is something we can all do in our own way in our homes and daily situations. This is a time when prayer is needed more than ever.
This month brings Holy Week and Easter. The Passion story includes darkness, fear, suffering and doubt, all feelings which resonate with the current situation. But at the end of it all is the resurrection, bringing light, life and hope. May that be something for us all to focus on and share at this time. For, to slightly adapt St Paul, there is nothing, not worry or uncertainty, not corona virus or isolation or even death that can ever separate us from the love of God.
Over coming months we may have to:
Support one-another differently
Ask about one-other differently,
But we are still a community in one body with our eyes lifted together.
(Archbishop Angaelos - Coptic Archbishop of London)
