Makeover at St Gabriel’s

We have just completed work on the Family Centre and now have have newly decorated halls and a bright new kitchen which will be of great benefit to us and to the local community.  St. Gabriel’s Community Cafe, which runs on Saturday morning providing teas, coffees and cake, will resume when the halls are reopened. Please watch this space for updates.

FCENS Night Shelter

For the past three years, the Forest Churches Emergency Night Shelter has been providing warmth and hospitality to those living rough on the streets. Last winter we hosted this at St Gabriel’s on a Tuesday night. Because of the building works at St. Gabriel’s this winter, Tuesday’s Night Shelter will be in the Welcome Centre at St Mary’s Walthamstow, our sister church.


We are committed to safeguarding children and young people and all victims of abuse and vulnerable adults. Our PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practices on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website. Our parish safeguarding officer is Donna Gwilliams; she can be reached at
