About our Church

The earliest followers of Jesus were marked by their love for one another. Their love was total, it was selfless and without compromise. You could spot a Christian by their love. It was often said, in referring to the earliest Christians, “See how they love one another.”

As a community of believers in Ealing this is how we want to be seen. We want to be known for our love. Why? Because through seeing our love for one another; our love for our neighbour, for strangers, even for those who would seek to hurt us, we hope that people will see the very real love of God. 

We pray they would also see that God loved us first. All of us, and He calls us to an intimate, personal, life changing relationship with him. Come encounter the God who loves you.

Gathering on a sunday

As a Catholic community we gather on Sundays to worship God and receive our spiritual nourishment. For so great is Jesus’ love for us that he could not leave us orphans without food. Jesus provides for our spiritual life by feeding us with his very Body and Blood, as he said he would. “This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.” John 6: 50-52
The multitude who heard Jesus proclaim this realised he meant it. It divided them; some believed, others walked away. From the beginning of the Church, Christians have gathered on a Sunday to celebrate the fact that God feeds his children in Holy Communion. This has been believed throughout the centuries because they have all believed that Jesus was God, that his words are true and Holy Communion is really Jesus’ Body and Blood for our nourishment. If this is true, why would we want to stay away from his offer of his own self, for even a week?
