Throughout Christian history some Christian people have found themselves isolated from the sacramental life of the Church for all sorts of reasons, and particularly in times of plague, famine and warfare.
At such times the Church has encouraged people to make what is called a spiritual communion. It is a way of uniting yourself with Jesus and entering into communion with him even though you are not able to receive the sacrament itself.
When we can’t meet to sing praise together, why not lift your spirits by singing along with some Christian Praise?

From Emily Eustace:
I will be running The London Marathon on (revised date) for Leukaemia Care, a cause that is very close to my heart.
Leukaemia Care is a national blood cancer support charity who are dedicated to ensuring that anyone affected by blood cancer receives the right information, advice and support.
Please donate to this amazing cause and help to raise a great amount of money for Leukaemia Care UK.
Donations can be made via JustGiving OR through cash donations directly to me.
Thank you very much for your support.

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
“Just for Girls” meet fortnightly on a Tuesday morning from 10—12 noon for Worship, Meditation, Prayer and Fellowship. The group is open to women who are members of St Paul’s church. Please contact Pauline Bolding
for further details.
St Paul’s welcomes anyone who is disabled - our Church has disabled access facilities through the South Door off the Main road, and a hearing loop for anyone using a hearing aid.
