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.
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

Today more than a quarter of all marriages in England between a man and a woman take place in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. You're welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church.
Looking to baptise your child?
Parishioners and regular worshippers are welcome welcome to have their children 'christened' in St Mary Magdalene. During the christening service your child will be baptized and with the support of the church, you and godparents, your child begins an amazing journey of faith.
Marking the end of a person's life here on earth.
A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world.
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.

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.
