Sea Sunday

This Sunday, 14th July, is Sea Sunday, when the Church prays for all those who live and work at sea. Without them we would not have most of the items we buy in the shops. Today’s second collection is for Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea), the Church’s official maritime welfare agency. It supports seafarers both practically and spiritually. This collection is vital to enable it to continue its work, so please give generously and remember seafarers in your prayers. Thank you. To donate online please visit

Parish Building Project – Fundraising Update

As you can see from our barometer in the porch, we have a fundraising target of £250,000 to be raised in 5-year Parishioner pledges. Fr Sean has begun meeting Parishioners on an individual basis to discuss whether they are willing to make a 5-year pledge, a one-off donation or an alternative financial commitment in addition to their normal, regular offertory donations. Please contact Fr Sean if you would like a pledge form or wish to discuss making a donation. You can read more about the projects here.
The total donations to the Building Fund to date are £34,011 during 2018 and £6,486 between January-March 2019. Since March, there have been further donations, which will be totalled and reported shortly. This represents money received and more has been pledged.
We thank all those who sponsored Parishioners who undertook The Great Haringey Deanery Bank Holiday Walk, on Monday 27th May. Please continue to keep our Building Fund in mind if you are undertaking any fundraising activities.
