St. Aldhelm’s is a lively and diverse Anglican church on Silver Street in Edmonton, N18. We would love to welcome you to our worship, but for now, because of the corona virus, are doors are closed.

Mother Anna continues to say the Mass on Thursday and Sunday at 10am – please do feel free to join her in prayer at those times, using this prayer if it helps you.

Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits you have given me,
for all the pains and insults you have borne for me.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
I ask you to come spiritually into my heart.
O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother,
may I know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more nearly,
day by day. Amen.

Sunday 26 July – Trinity 7

Prayer for today

Generous God, you give us gifts and make them grow: though our faith is small as mustard seed, make it grow to your glory and the flourishing of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Re-opening the church

We are delighted to announce that we will be opening for worship once again from Sunday 6 September.

Coronavirus has not gone away so we need to keep people as safe as possible. Expect things to be a bit different from how they were – social distancing, shorter services, no singing, no tea and coffee after the service.

But however different things are it will be good to be together again to worship. Thanks be to God.
