What an incredible BIG Spring Weekend we had. I honestly can't wait until the next one in 2020! It's such a privilege to gather as God's family in East London and the great news is there's plenty of other opportunities in the coming weeks to do just that... Sundays, Groups, Easter celebrations, our BIG London Marathon Party (and don't forget Focus in July). So let me encourage you to keep diving in and exploring together in this adventure of life and faith with Jesus.

As I reflected on all the fun we've had this last month, I was encouraged by this verse from Isaiah 61:

The Lord bestows, "a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. [We] will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendour."

Lots of love and joy and prayers

Tuesday, 30 April

(AKA. the APCM) this is where we talk about SPS family life, give thanks to God for all he's doing amongst us and appoint those involved in the governance of the church. An important part of all this is the creation of our electoral roll, read on to find out more...

St Paul's Shadwell, like every church in the Church of England, has an ‘electoral roll’ a list of its church members – a kind of census – which is important for our relationship with the diocese and the wider church.

Every six years this electoral roll is made void and a new one has to be created. And this is the year! So if you have worshipped at SPS regularly for the last six months or more, it would be amazing if you could sign up to the new electoral roll. It only takes 1 minute to do and is a digital form that you can access right from this email!
