On 18th June, the whole community is invited to join us for a picnic on Tottenham Green – we’ll provide activities for children, a bouncy castle, food…

We’re looking forward to the return of Messy Church for a new term on Saturday 6th May. This term, we will be discovering the stories of two great women in the Bible – Ruth and Esther. We’ll also be taking a trip to a special Messy Church event at St Paul’s Cathedral on 29th May (Bank…

Messy Church – Winter 2017

Messy Church returns for 2017 on Saturday at 2pm. Join us for Crafts, Songs, Stories, celebration, and a meal for everyone! Over the next few months, we’ll be thinking about growing up, and looking at how Jesus went from being a baby in a manger to a Cross at Easter. The theme this month: ‘Lost…

The Wellside Cafe – Winter 2017

One of the highlights of my week is when we open the doors on a Friday afternoon, and make our space available to those who want to chat, to make new friends, or who just want a cup of tea and a space out of the cold. This term, we’ve invited some of our friends…

Carols and Crafts on the Green – Christmas is Coming!

On Sunday, we lit the second of our Advent Candles, and Christmas will be upon us sooner than we expect.

Discovering All Saints at Westminster Abbey

Reflection on Trinity Sunday 2016

As a parish church dedicated to the Holy Trinity, it is ‘well and good’ for us to rejoice on this festal day. However, there are Christians for whom the concept is not entirely acceptable. At the charitable end of objectors are those who would simply say, ‘It is a stranger to the Bible.’ What is more,…

Responding to the Housing Crisis with London Citizens

This time last year, we had just embarked on a listening campaign, speaking to people about the issues that affect them and their families. Everywhere we went, people were – and still are – talking about housing. I’m sure you’ve heard the same. People are concerned about how much it costs to rent, how much it…
