Welcome to St Mary Magdalene, Enfield
We are open on Sunday mornings
between 10am and 12noon
for private prayer

**Stop Press**

Dear all,

Following careful planning and hard work in getting us ready by Dave and Gill Bird, Peter Lamb and Alison Reeve we are now in a position to be open for private prayer every Sunday from 10am - 12noon. There will be a one way system in operation, entry through the South door and exit through the West door.

We will, of course, be following Government and the Bishop's guidance on the care to be taken when coming together to pray privately. Do not feel you must come, please bear in mind this is not a compulsory act and your health and well being are our paramount priority.

We are providing hand sanitiser on the way in and out, but if you would like to bring your own please do so and use it at the appropriate time. We have a few face masks that can be provided if you don't have one, but please do bring your own if possible.

If you are able to, we do need volunteers to welcome, provide guidance through the church and help maintain safety - rather like a sides person would. If you feel you are able to help and would be willing to be put on a rota, we envisage two people as a minimum per shift of 10am-11am and another 11am-12noon (you can do a 'double shift' if you wish). Opening and closing of the church will be covered.

If you are able to volunteer please contact Ken at stmarysenfield@icloud.com who will arrange with you available date and set up the rota.

We don't know when we will be able to resume some kind of service - guidelines are being drawn up but we are not rushing into this - however, we do hope to continue with private prayer for the foreseeable future and the weekly online service will be continuing as a regular feature on the website.

Stay safe and keep well.

The “Spanish” Influenza in Enfield, 1918 -1919

Just over 100 years ago the world faced a pandemic in the form of the unfortunately named "Spanish" Flu (it didn't originate in Spain but is thought to have originated in an Army barracks in Kansas USA). How did the pandemic affect the people of Enfield? A fascinating article by our archivist Joy Heywood is now available

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.

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.
