Our Purpose

The people of Eastcote are the treasure of God’s Church

We are a Church of England parish in the borough of Hillingdon which originated as a mission plant in the hamlet of Eastcote. The founding of St Lawrence’s anticipated development of Eastcote to form part of suburban London.

 

We continue to provide a Christian witness in this community, offering resource for stability and integration for lives shaped through encounter with difference, adaptation to change, and evolutionary growth.

Inspired by the example of St Lawrence as a disciple of Jesus Christ, our vision is to see God’s grace and generosity shared as the gospel demonstrates its power at the interface of church life and local lives.

To affect this vision we:

  • worship God and offer spiritual nurture

  • resource activities and events with a community focus

  • build relationships which enable transforming encounter

  • develop and share our resources and facilities
