Read about everything happening at St Paul’s this winter.
In her introductory article “Don’t miss the Baby!”, Vicar Ola explains some of the reasons that can make us miss Jesus, and why we need to make time during our preprations for Christmas to find out who this baby really is.

Update: Concert by The Woodford Singers (19 October)
The concert of film and television related music by The Woodford Singers on 19th October was greatly enjoyed by the audience of around 60 people.
£600 (including reclaimed Gift Aid) was raised for the Toilet Fund which was a wonderful result.
Fun numbers such as the Dad’s Army tribute were much talked about afterwards.
A big thank-you to all the Singers and to their amazing young guest singer!

Sign up to easyfundraising and help us raise FREE funds for St Paul’s Church Toilet Fund when you’re doing your everyday shopping online — it doesn't cost you anything. When you raise your first £5, easyfundraising will match it.
At the moment we have no toilets in the church building - the nearest are at the bottom of the churchyard in the church hall. This is very inconvenient for baptisms, weddings, funerals, and other church services and social activities beneficial to the local community.
So we’re planning to have two toilet cubicles, one fully accessible for mobility impaired users, installed in church at a cost of around £80,000 - costing this much largely because the church building hasn't got a sewer pipe outlet and the nearest connection for one to be laid is at the church hall.
How you can help us...
make a Bank Transfer donation to Barclays, Woodford Broadway Branch sort code 20-52-74 account no. 10775215
put your donation in a blue Gift Aid envelope available in church and mark it “Toilet” (cheques payable to ST. PAUL’S PCC)
The Bible says “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but may have eternal life” (John 3:16). That means those who ‘follow’ Jesus Christ, who love his company, respect his teaching, trust his promises and are prepared to let this affect their lives.
We are committed to Safeguarding Children, Young People, Victims/perpetrators of Domestic Abuse and Vulnerable Adults.
We have an active Mothers’ Union and our Textile Group has created inspiring and colourful banners for the church and
