ST PAUL'S CHURCH, 2PM
CONNECTION & COLLABORATION
Like many charities and businesses, churches are facing huge financial challenges as a result of lockdown and closure. St Paul's Church is a vital community hub serving our estates and parish. We are usually open seven days a week, daytime & evening, for community groups, classes, support networks and events. During lockdown our regular bookings had to be cancelled and our budgeted income stopped almost overnight. Although the church building was closed for over three months, we continued our vital ministry through online worship, phone support, outreach ministry through 'From Hearts to Homes' and Foodcycle Marylebone, pastoral care and funeral ministry.
If you are able to offer financial support to St Paul's Church during this season we would be most grateful. Donations can be received online through bank transfer via BACS 'St Paul's Church PCC', Sort Code: 40-52-40 Account Number: 00017412 or through the Parish Giving Scheme (a regular monthly donation to the church through direct debit). The video below from The Church of England explains more about the Parish Giving Scheme.
Please contact Reverend Clare if you have any questions about giving to the church during this time.
Thank you for your generosity and prayer at this time.
Following the long period of lockdown we have undertaken risk assessments in our building and put social distancing measures in place, enabling us to open for individual prayer and some adapted times of public worship. Many in our community are still shielding, making good decisions to stay safe and taking healthy precautions as they emerge from this time of lockdown. As such, we are continuing our online worship as well as gathering in person in church. We also continue our online prayer group and support networks, our phone-line support for prayer and practical support, and the delivery of food as part of our ongoing commitment to support one another in our life as a community. We continue to pray for all in our parish and especially for those who are suffering at this time.

Online Gathering (via Zoom) every Sunday at 11am for DWELL
