News for 7th July

Thursday fun and fellowship.

Have we considered the importance of fellowshipping and recreational activities with friends, especially church members? 

St. Anselm Church is a family like any other church, but we always pride ourselves in the fact that our family is unique because we have purposed in our hearts to grow together and support each other with the help of God. 

Our history tells us that we have been through many good and challenging times, but we have stayed together as one big and loving family that is always welcoming. 

We must always be thankful to God, continue to rely on His promptings and be ready to move on steadily through the power of the Holy Spirit. Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do everything through him who strengthens me”.

It is essential as a church to come together on Sundays and other days to fellowship and have fun through recreational activities because it helps improve our mental, physical and spiritual well-being. 

This will help improve our quality of life, make new friends, learn new things and share our experiences. Life is challenging and very stressful, and we must ensure that we take care of ourselves through recreational activities to avoid or minimise stress. The church is creating an avenue for us to take some time out of our busy schedule to play games, uplift our souls with some refreshing words of God, drink tea & coffee with our friends and pray together. 

Come and be part of our new church activity dubbed Thursday Fun and Fellowship (TFF) starting on Thursday, 27th July, from 7-8:30 pm every Thursday. Come out and enjoy yourselves. 

Fr. Josiah

Our new Sunday School is up and running and is an hour after mass every other Sunday. There is Sunday School THIS WEEK at 11:30am-12:30pm. Please invite and encourage your children to come.

You’ll notice over the summer that either Fr. Josiah and       Fr. Matthew may be away on Sundays – this is not because they’re having wonderful holidays but because they’re covering services at other churches who are not as fortunate in having two Priests!

Please sign up for Parish Giving (which is a wonderful way to support St. Anselm and helps us claim more money from the government) Go to or call the Parish Giving Team directly on 0333 002 1271 quoting our parish number, which is: 230 623 503.

We are planning a Bible Study Evening for Thursdays starting on 27th July, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. We will come together to have informal discussions on interesting topics in the Bible, share ideas, experiences, have tea / coffee, pray, and play board games together. Let us pray about it for the will of God to be done.
