To comply with the strict but essential measures adopted by the Government to prevent the spread of coronavirus in our communities, and in the light of the decision taken by the Bishops of London to close churches in the London boroughs, regrettably we have taken the step of locking our church buildings until further notice. Following guidance from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, our clergy will stay at home as part of the national effort to halt the spread of infection, protect our NHS and save lives.
This means that the church will be closed for prayer and reflection and no public services will take place.
Our Ministry team will continue to observe the ancient patterns of prayer – Daily Morning and Evening Prayer and the service of Holy Communion at 10.00 am on Sunday. These services will be conducted by the clergy from home on behalf of the whole church community, parish and wider world.
Sunday 10:00 am Holy Communion available to view on YouTube
Our main 10 am Sunday Eucharist service will be available to view on YouTube each week at the regular time. You can subscribe to our new YouTube channel – St Paul’s Wimbledon Parkside – and turn on ‘post notifications’ (the bell icon next to the subscribe button) to be notified when new content is uploaded.

9am Morning and 6pm Evening Prayer
Morning and Evening Prayer will be observed daily by our clergy, at home, on behalf of our church community, parish and wider word. You can access Daily Prayer at 9 am and 6 pm on our YouTube channel: St Paul’s Wimbledon Parkside
In addition, we invite you to join us and the rest of the Diocese each day at 1 and 7 pm as we say the wonderful words of the Lord’s Prayer, which remind us of the Lord”s constant presence in our lives during these dark times.
Where it is safe to do so, perhaps you could light a candle in your window each evening as a symbol of Christ’s light in our world at this dark time?
