Welcome to The Parish of the Divine Compassion!
We are in Plaistow and North Canning Town in the East End of London.
Our four churches are St Mary’s, St Matthias’,
St Martin’s, and St Philip and St James’.
Our Parish Vision
We try to worship God in spirit and in truth, to pray constantly and to care for each other and those around us. Our fellowship seeks to promote healing, social activities, spiritual nurture and Bible study. You are very welcome to join us at any of our services or activities. We seek to serve God and the local community and welcome enquiries for Weddings, Baptisms, Funerals and all sorts of hall bookings. Do please get in touch with one of the clergy for services or the administrator for bookings.
As a worshipping community we live closely bound together in peace and unity, and foster spiritual wellbeing. Repentance and forgiveness are paramount and we practice patience and tolerance towards each other. We encourage each other to be more responsible and generous in giving our time and money in the service to the Lord. We are blessed with the ministry of several priests and the presence throughout the parish of Anglican Franciscan brothers and sisters living in community with each other and alongside the people who live and worship here.
