Welcome to St Paul's
Welcome to St Paul's

Our church is in Grove Park, Chiswick, just a stone's throw from the Thames. It 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 have one Eucharist Service a week, on Sundays at 10am and coffee is served afterwards at the back of the church. On Mondays the Meditation Group meet in church at 6:45pm for about half an hour and a quiet celebration of communion often follows this. On Fridays in church, we have a Stay and Play group for parents, babies and toddlers from 9:30-11:30am, a Coffee Club from 10:45am to 12 noon and a short Welcome Service taken by our Lay Minister Simon Surtees from 12-12:30pm.

 
Our vicar is 
Rev'd Caroline Halmshaw who can be contacted on 07742 738660.

MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR REV'D MICHAEL RILEY

We were very shocked and saddened to hear of the death of our former vicar Rev’d Michael Riley, who died at his home in Bromley in February. The funeral will be a private service for family only and a Service of Thanksgiving will be held at St Paul's Church on Saturday 22 June at 12 noon

 

Father Michael was the vicar at St Paul’s between 1989 and 2022 and retired in July 2022. Many members of our community have been christened, confirmed or married by Michael, and all of us have many wonderful memories of the happy times we spent together at St Paul’s. As well as leading our worship for 32 years, Michael was an enthusiastic participant in concerts, book groups, quiz nights, supper parties, fetes and picnics and we have so much to thank him for. You can read an obitury for Father Michael in The Chiswick Calendar here

St John’s Gospel Chapter 14 brings us comfort as we mourn someone who was and is much loved:

 

Jesus said: "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling-places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also be."

 

Heavenly Father,

We give thanks for the life of Father Michael, for his ministry among us in Grove Park.

Thank you for the years we shared together, for the memories we cherish.

Bring comfort and hope to all who mourn. May we trust in your unfailing love, knowing Father Michael rests with you, where there is no more sorrow or pain, but life everlasting.

Amen
