Welcome to St Mary Magdalene, Enfield

We are now in an Interregnum

It is with mixed emotions, both happy and sad, that we announce that our vicar, Gordon, has moved from St Mary Magdalene Enfield to take up his new post at Rochester Cathedral as Canon Chancellor. Gordon has served as our vicar for 17 years and will be greatly missed for his compassion and leadership. Gordon was licensed on Saturday 13 June by Bishop James Langstaff, Bishop of Rochester. We wish Gordon, Jessica and Maria all the very best for their future in Rochester. We're sure God will open the path for Gordon to be effective in his new role.

**Stop Press**

We are pleased to announce that from Sunday 6th September we will be holding said Eucharist Services at 10:00am on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sunday of each month. Of course, following Government and Church of England guidelines, we will be keeping social distancing and wearing of face masks is mandatory. There is limited space for these services – 54 individual spaces, so if you are a couple or are part of a family bubble, we can accommodate a few more. We will be adding a few more chairs to the church to allow for extra spaces. We expect the service to take around 45 minutes.

The 2nd and 4th Sundays we will continue to open for private prayer between 10am and 12noon.

Pray with us

Would you like to pray but don't know what or how to? Why not join with members of our congregation in saying The Lord's Prayer. When we begin to think about and unpack the words of this simple prayer it covers all of life in such a profound way.

Beginning this coming Sunday (6th September) we will be having a said Echarist Service on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month from 10:00 am lasting around 45 minutes. We have carefully assessed the space and reckon we can safely accommodate 54 individual spaces to allow for social distancing - we can fit more in if you are part of a family or bubble. There will be guidelines provided first before we begin the Service so that everyone will know how to proceed with the Communion.

On the 2nd and 4th Sundays we will be continuing with private prayer between 10:00 am and 12 noon.

Wearing of face masks is mandatory.

Daily Devotionals

Daily devotionals come from three sources that you can choose from (or use all!), whether travelling to work, sitting and relaxing during a well deserved break, or making one of them a part of your daily 'quiet time' with God.

Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer (or Compline) come from the Church of England's Common Worship which provides prayers and readings for different times during the day.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C.

Pray As You Go is a Jesuit based, audio resource that can be listened to anywhere.

Morning Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Morning Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Evening Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Evening Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Compline

Please click this link to be taken to today's Night Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship.

The Church year begins in Advent. This church year, 2019-2020, is year A.
