welcoming our neighbours

The Open Table

This is a monthly meal cooked by members of the church and Muslim neighbours. It is free of charge, and everyone is welcome; rich and poor, homeless and housed. The Muslim women working with us on this project are part of “Meals on Heels” - a social enterprise helping local women to find employment through harnessing their cooking skills, which will soon be based in our kitchen.

East End Women: The Real Story

Members of the church have been involved in protests against the Jack the Ripper Museum which opened in our parish last year. (It secured planning permission by promising to tell the story of East London’s women). We have worked with women from across the community to produce a real exhibition of east end women’s history. It is open in church all day, every day.

parish prayer

Loving Father,
we thank you for calling us
to be a beacon of
Christ’s light
on the Highway.

For the sake of
our neighbours and community,
inspire us to shine
with the light of your welcome,
your forgiveness,
your challenge
and your healing love;
in Jesus’ name.

Amen.
