“We wait in hope for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, LORD,
even as we put our hope in you. “
Psalm 33v 20-22.
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
As a first step back to re-opening, the church will be open on Friday mornings 10-11 am, starting 7th August. Anyone is welcome to come in for quiet reflection and personal prayer. The sanctuary may look a little bit different to comply with social distancing regulations, but God's presence is still there. Those of you who go in will also notice that the Lent cross is still up. There is a theological as well as practical reason for this, in a lovely reflection shared by David:
When I was at the church yesterday I half considered dismantling the Lent arrangement. And then I thought that it should stay until we are able to meet again as we once long ago, did. It seemed to me to speak of the lockdown represented in the cross and the service of sharing the by way of shopping or other deeds represented in the bread and wine and then the basin and towel speaking of the love and care expressed in so many ways by NHS staff and all care workers let alone between neighbours.
The display has remained in church throughout this Lent time of lockdown, and perhaps can help you in your prayers and thoughts of how you have been feeling over the last few months. It will come down as we are able to move forwards and think about new life and beginnings.
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)
