St Matthew's Ponders End
SUSPENSION OF PUBLIC WORSHIP
The PCC of St Matthew's has passed a resolution requesting the Bishop to approve a suspension of public worship from Sunday 29th November (when, of course, the church will be closed anyway because of the national lockdown) until Candlemas next year. Unless a further suspension is requested, public worship will resume on Sunday 7th February 2021.
The main reason for this suspension is that we have problems with the church boiler that we cannot afford to put right at the moment. Trying to worship in a freezing cold church over the Christmas period is not a good way to celebrate the birth of our Saviour, nor is it in the best interests of the health of those attending.
During this closure you are cordially invited to worship at our sister church of St Alphege in Hertford Road. You will find details of services, etc., on their 'A Church Near You' page.
