Connection and 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 gradually opening up for community groups, classes, support networks and events, in line with government guidelines. However, 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.
During this Season of Advent we gather on Sunday mornings at 10am for a service of Holy Communion.
The church is also open for individual prayer during the week, with space in the chapel set aside for people to pray or light a candle. Many of our regular community groups have now restarted - following Covid-19 regulations - so we welcome you to join in Bible Study on Mondays, 1.30-2.30pm, Art Club on Wednesdays 10-12noon or find out about other groups here on the website.
On Wednesdays we continue the work of FoodCycle Marylebone delivering food to individuals and families in our community. If you would like to volunteer with FoodCycle Marylebone please sign up on the FoodCycle website. We hope to return to our weekly community meal in the New Year, until then we are glad to continue supporting our community through deliveries and phone-support.
We will continue our prayer and practical support 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.

'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength ... Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.'
