Although the Christmas season has passed, we wanted to share with you highlights from across Stepney of the wonderful ways you all celebrated. Enjoy this glimpse into what St Pauls West Hackney got up to in December.

Chefs in Schools
Chefs in Schools used St Paul’s Church to pack and distribute over 600 food hampers to families across Hackney in the week running up to Christmas.

Duckie and the Posh Club and the Posh Club run a series of 8 socially distanced Christmas Cabaret & Tea Parties for the over 60’s in St Paul’s Church Hall in December with the brilliant title of ‘Le Petit Posh.’

Socially Distanced Community Carols in St Paul’s Churchyard
Tom Daggett of St Paul’s Cathedral and Hackney Choral led over 150 local people in socially distanced Community Carol Singing in St Paul’s Churchyard, raising over £500 for North London Action for the Homeless – a project at St Paul’s Church

For the 12th year in a row, St Paul’s Churchyard was home to the Christmas Forest, where over 1000 local people came to buy their Christmas trees in a year when Christmas cheer was in short supply.
