Lockdown 2.0

The church buildings will be closed from Thursday 5th November until further notice.

Mass will be online every day (Sunday to Saturday) at 10am. Please join us via Zoom or YouTube.

In these difficult times we remember the words of St. Edmund Campion: "Into your hands, O Lord, & Your Angels, I place & entrust this Day..."

 

Watch live at 10am

On Sundays we will probably reach our maximum capacity on Zoom. If you have trouble joining then please use YouTube.

 

We want to keep you up-to-date with information and updates about Coronavirus so that you can take appropriate action.

Following the announcement of a lockdown in England from 5 November, the initial guidance from the Government states that Places of Worship will be closed, unless they are being used for:

  • Funerals and to broadcast acts of worship (Zoom and YouTube)

We know that all the information and risk assessments and advice updates issued in the past few weeks can feel quite overwhelming. We have certainly never walked this way before, but we walk together down new paths, in the grace and strength of our Lord Jesus.

We are praying for you as you continue to pick your way through this strange land; we pray for the peace of our Triune God to rest on you and on our church community of St. Edmund Campion.

Please note that Mass is celebrated each day (Monday –Sunday) at 10am. You can join us online via Zoom or YouTube. This will continue under the current lockdown.

Financial Contributions

It is greatly appreciated that many of you transferred your 'church offering' from cash to direct debit and standing order over the last number of months. Our parish has had its financial income greatly reduced and this has impacted on our church activities, donations to various charities and parish maintenance.

NB: It would be really helpful for the parish if the vast majority of our Weekly Collection could be done via Direct Debit / Standing Order. At present, we are a vastly cash—giving parish, and with the dramatic decrease in donations, it is very hard to plan and donate to those most vulnerable and in need, as well as care for our parish community.

Fr. Liam asks that you reflect and, if possible, switch your donation from cash to bank. This would be invaluable and would give the Parish Council and Finance Committee more solidity in planning for the months/years ahead.

If you wish, you can still give a donation via the parish account:

Parish Priest

I am Liam Cummins and I come from Ireland. I'm the eldest of four children (three boys and one girl).

As a Mill Hill Missionary (millhillmissionaries.com), I have spent a good period of my adult life ministering in Africa, namely Cameroon and Kenya. I was appointed to England to do Mission Animation (Missio and Mill Hill) for a number of Dioceses in 2012. I really enjoyed this work and it involved a good amount of travelling and meeting lots of people. Read more.
