Welcome to St Aldhelm’s
After listening to the concerns and hopes of the congregation we are relaxing Covid restrictions slowly, so for now we are still sitting in alternate rows, wearing face masks while moving around the church and while singing – just one hymn for now – and still taking communion as bread alone. We are keeping an eye on local data and listening to what people who come to church say and will make changes to how we worship when it seems right.
August at St Aldhelm’s
August is often a quiet time in our church and this year is no exception. Mother Anna and Mother Patricia will each be taking leave so things will be a little different until Monday 6 September, when everyone will be back from their summer break.
Sunday services will of course continue at 10am each week, in person and online, Morning Prayer will continue on Zoom and there will be a service in the chapel on Thursday mornings, but there will be no services of Evening Prayer until 6 September. Please keep all our ministry team in your prayers, both those on holiday and those covering for the holidaymakers.
The parish of St Aldhelm Edmonton is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of London’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
