Our Neighbouring East Ham - E6 Churches
Planted near the railway line in the northeast corner of East Ham Parish, the mission hall at St Paul’s, East Ham, was opened in 1908, becoming a separate parish in 1924. The church was built in 1933. Now in the Evangelical tradition (the Church Patronage Trust are patrons), St Paul's is low, informal and aims to be family friendly, with a congregation (ER 130) of all ages and many nationalities. The hall and church are now linked as a Church Centre, much used by members of the local community. The present incumbent has been in post since November 2005, joined by a stipendiary curate in 2010. To find out more, see St Paul’s website.
St George’s is celebrating its centenary in 2012. We are conservative evangelical Anglican tradition. Our Parish motto is: “Sharing the Love of God in the Community and Growing Together”. For details and information please visit the St. George & Ethelbert Church Website.
Pilgrims Way Congregational & Methodist Church (PW) and High Street South Methodist Church (HSS) share a minister and are situated just a few minutes walk from St Bart’s (PW) and St Mary’s (HSS). The East Ham Parish Team has a good relationship with the current Methodist Minister. We say Morning Prayer together on Mondays and run a Lent course across the four churches. We have also exchanged pulpits and altars during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Both clergy and laity are keen to build on the strong links we already enjoy and further explore how the national Anglican-Methodist covenant might be worked out on a local level.
