"Come to me all you who are burdened and I will give you rest."

Our parish is part of the Diocese of Westminster and is situated in the heart of London.

It is home to a vibrant, exciting and culturally diverse community, sharing our lives and growing in faith together. Our website aims to provide a taste of all the many different groups in our parish, all of which are centred firmly in The Good News of Christ.

We strive to provide a loving welcome to all who pass through our parish, but nothing can substitute for coming and sharing in our worship with us.


PARISH MISSION WEEK! - Monday 22 May to Friday 26 May, the St Patrick’s Community will be leading this special mission of renewal in our parish (7 -8pm every evening).

The programme is:

    A Time for Mission

    In today’s Gospel Jesus, speaking to the disciples at the Last Supper, continues to prepare them for his departure from them. Looking beyond his crucifixion and death, he speaks of how when he finally leaves them in his bodily form, God the Father will send his “Spirit of Truth” to guide them in a new way. Jesus promises them “I will not leave you orphans”, explaining that he will be sharing with them his own relationship with his Father.

    So this is a time of transition, change and new beginnings for the disciples. They must let go of their familiar way of being with Jesus in a physical way and embrace their new contact with him through faith. They will no longer be following a man they admire and love but will be invited to become his living members, charged with his spirit and mission. And the power behind this change is the Holy Spirit. The word ‘Spirit’ in Hebrew means ‘breath’. The air that we breathe is unseen but absolutely essential to life. In the same way it is through the gift of the Spirit that we come alive spiritually. Through this breath of God within us we are called to be no longer merely human but to let God live in us, work in us and love through us!

    This week is a very special week in our parish – a time of mission, a time when we humbly and expectantly ask the Holy Spirit to bring us alive in our faith in new ways. It is a time when we hope and pray that many people, young and old who have perhaps been luke-warm or cool in their faith will be inspired by the Spirit to come back and receive the healing that they may need. Please do everything you can to come to as much as you can this week – Monday to Friday, 7-8pm, beginning on Monday evening with the inspiring testimony of John Pridmore, an ex-gangster brought back to life by the power of the Spirit. Please come yourself, and please be brave and invite anyone else you know who may need to hear this powerful message. Let the Spirit guide you!

    With Easter blessings & prayers from Fr Richard, Fr Ephrem & parish team
