Global partners

We are a church with many members from different parts of the world (the last time we counted, our membership included some 20 nationalities from the continents of Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe) and we have partnerships with a range of Christians and Christian projects and agencies in a range of contexts and countries. We rejoice in the hospitality we extend to three churches who use our premises on an on-going basis, including the north London congregation of the Iranian Christian Fellowship.

Individual members of St Paul's are directly involved in supporting a variety of mission agencies and activities. Our associate vicar was a mission partner with the South American Mission Society (now part of the Church Mission Society) from 2004 to 2006, serving as Director of Education for the Anglican Diocese of Peru. In recent years she has gone on short-term mission trips to Peru, New Zealand, Rwanda and South Sudan. In 2009 our vicar spent part of his sabbatical teaching at St John's Anglican University in Dodoma, Tanzania. In 2013 we welcomed the Provincial Secretary of the Anglican Church of Kenya for a weekend visit to St Paul's and also hosted a day visit by the Bishop of Maridi from the Episcopal Church of South Sudan.

As a church we collectively support the following people and organisations through prayer and financial assistance (in 2016 this was £14,232):

From time to time we have special appeals and retiring offerings for the Church's Ministry Among Jewish People (at Easter) and TearFund (at Christmas and in response to major disasters). We also donate Christmas shoeboxes to Link to Hope, which are distributed to impoverished communities in Bulgaria, Moldova, Romania, and the Ukraine.
