Please click here: Bishop Jo reflects briefly on the remarkable life, and impact, of HRH Prince Philip and then leads this prayer: Support us O Lord, all the day long of this troublous life, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, the busy world is hushed, the fever of life is over and our work is done; then Lord, in your mercy, grant us safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at the last, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Sunday Services Spring 2021
Sunday 11th April - no Live Stream Service on Facebook, please use the YouTube link to watch the one service for this Sunday - please note that this was filmed before the death of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Sunday 18th April will be back to 2 services - please see below.
We are currently canvassing opinion amongst the Church Family as to how we should proceed with Sunday Services. Whilst there has been some relaxations in the restrictions on our social interactions in general, the guidelines are still very tight for Religious Services. In the meantime, we will continue to offer online services:
9:15am Holy Communion via You Tube.
11am Morning Worship - via Facebook Livestream (and therefore will be recorded and available to watch at a later date/time as well). You don't need to have a Facebook Account to view any of our live or back catalogue of services.
Please feel free to visit our You Tube channel to view other services from this year.
Please join us for Morning Prayers led by Trevor this week. We are holding Zoom meetings for this as detailed below - you are welcome to join with just audio if you do not wish to appear on screen and there is no pressure to do any more than listen unless you wish to contribute, especially to begin with.
Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 9am - 9:30am
Meeting ID: 728 7025 9609
We are currently running an exciting project- we are gathering the testimonies of St Paul's members past and present to tell us what God has done for them through their time at St Paul's- the aim is that God will be glorified as we describe His life changing and transformational work in our lives & that our church family will be encouraged to hear again how powerfully God is working in our midst. We'd love you to be involved- email us here & we'll give you some ideas to get you started. We are going to be publishing an EBook & have the testimonies together on our website & as a magazine for the church family.
Hebrews Coffee Shop
Hebrews has closed for the Easter Holidays to enable the Loaves and Fishes teams to create packed lunches for children in the local area. It will reopen on Tuesday 20th April for alfresco dining and takeaways. Please note the change of days from then - we will open on Tuesdays and Fridays 9:30am - 2:30pm. Hot drinks are available at set prices and toasties and homemade cakes on the pay as you feel scheme. Lunch is available for those with Foodbank vouchers.
Loaves and Fishes Project
Teams of volunteers work shifts to create and handout free packed lunches to children (regardless of home circumstances) throughout the Easter Holidays. These can be collected from the Church, Addlestone Tescos or Strawberry Fields 12-1pm each day. If you would like to donate please visit our Just Giving page or to find out more please contact us.
We are also still accepting donations to the Salvation Army's 'Tin a Week' Scheme. Please bring any tins or dry goods to the Hebrews entrance on Tuesdays and Fridays during their opening hours.
We remain a collector and distributer for Fairshare food.
Each week, we send an email to our Church Family to confirm how they can participate in worshiping with us on a Sunday. If you would like to be added to this list of email contacts, or if you would like to receive additional information, letters, prayers or updates, then please get in touch.
