Welcome to St Paul's Church
Grove Park, Chiswick

St Paul's has been used for Christian worship since 1872 and we would be delighted if you joined us. Christians of all denominations are welcome here, as are those searching for God and indeed the simply curious.

We are now actively recruiting for a new vicar! The ad above is running in the Church Times for four weeks and the closing date for applications is 5 December. Applicants will receive a copy of our Parish Profile, which is a kind of prospectus for our church, as well as containing information about the type of vicar we would like. It includes feedback from the Listening to the Parish session which we held in September.  You can download a copy of this below and there are also copies to view at the back of the church.

During the interregnum, Sunday servces are taken by a rota of visiting clergy. Any questions should be addressed to our two churchwardens.

COFFEE CLUB
Coffee Club is now running every Friday, in church, between 10:45-12 noon. Do pop in for a chat, a cuppa and some delicious cake! We'd especially like to reach out to the elderly members of our community who would appreciate  some company, so if you know anyone who may be feeling isolated, please do encourage them to come along! There will be a short overlap with the Stay and Play session, which also runs on a Friday morning, so that the toddlers can mix with our older parishioners. Coffee Club is followed by a short service at 12 noon.

STAY AND PLAY
This is a friendly session for babies and toddlers together with their parents and carers. There are lots of activities for pre-schoolers, both indoors and outdoors, and a cuppa and a chat for the grown-ups. Sessions run every Friday, from 9:30-11:30 in the Isis Rooms For more information, please contact Shelagh Allsop on 07710 385839 or shelagh.allsop@gmail.com. There is a £1 voluntary contribution per family, which includes drinks and snacks

SERVICES AND EVENTS 

During this period of interregnum, there is just one service a week, on Sunday at 10am and the church will only be open on Sundays. Coffee is served afterwards, either at the back of church. The Monday Meditation group is held at the home of Sheila White, please contact her if you would like to join this on 020 8994 1416 or ChisWhite@aol.com

Advent Course on Zoom: ADVENT PEOPLE

The season of Advent, the Church’s New Year, begins today. It is a time of celebration but, more than that, Advent is a time of reflection and meditation. Not as austere as Lent, perhaps; certainly, the music is much prettier! But still, a time to reflect on our Christianity as, yet again, we look forward to celebrating the birth of Jesus.As with Lent, St. Paul’s has always offered a special time for reflection during Advent. This year, using the Bible and Liturgy together with some poetry and music, we will be meeting characters from the Bible and literature, characters who are “Advent people”. People who were changed by the knowledge that God was amongst us, also people who found in Jesus a God who they could recognise. By hearing their stories of hope, expectation, and faith, we too can experience the excitement of Jesus’ coming.

Given the current circumstances, and to allow for as many to come as want, we are running this year's Advent course on Zoom. There are four sessions, on Wednesday afternoons from 2-3pm starting on 23 November. To find out more, and get the Zoom link, please contact simon.cv.surtees@gmail.com
