Our Parish is at the extreme north of the diocese of London, verging on Hertfordshire and the green belt. Geographically, it is one of the largest parishes in London, and within its boundaries, an extraordinary range of life and activity can be found: shops, schools, housing estates, parks and farms; a major hospital (Chase Farm), the highest concentration of garden centres in Europe, and a generous slice of the M25.
The parish comprises two churches, dedicated to St John the Baptist and St Luke the Evangelist. St John's is a Venetian style country church, situated in an almost uniquely rural part of London. St Luke's is a red-brick church situated in the more urban area of north Enfield.
The focus of church life in the parish is the Sunday Eucharist, which is celebrated at both of our two churches, but there are also regular weekday services, along with other activities and social events. Visitors and newcomers are welcome to join in all our services and activities.
Our Vicar The Rev, Dr Edward Dowler has been called by God to take up the position of Archdeacon of Hastings.
His final service in the parish will be at St Luke’s church on Sunday 31 July at 10:30am. Everyone is invited to this service where we will all have the opportunity to thank Fr. Edward for his service in our parish and to wish him well on his new appointment.
Fr Edward will be collated as Archdeacon of Hastings at Evensong at St Mary’s, Rye at 5pm on Sunday 18 September.
He will be installed as a Canon of Chichester Cathedral at 5.30pm on Tuesday 20 September.
Please pray for Fr. Edward and his family as they prepare for their move.
