January 2021 Update

Following the announcement of the National Lockdown we now expect to have to keep our building closed to the public and all of our groups that hire space for at least up to the February half therm.  The government is expected to review the lockdown restrictions the week beginning the 15th February.  We will continue to closely review the situation and consult with Hackney Public Health in regards to the local context.

We are of course disappointed, but helping the NHS stay on top of this crisis and the safety of our community, volunteers and staff is our primary focus and therefore we will have to keep our doors closed for the foreseeable future.

Please note that many of our staff have young children and will be home schooling while being furloughed part-time and therefore we will have reduced staff capacity, so please be patient if it takes a little longer to respond to your messages.

Urban Table will continue the take away free meal service on a Sunday we will continue to coordinate meal deliveries from Made in Hackney.  Our Families Project and Clapton Community Drop In will continue to provide support.

We still have volunteering opportunities with this work if you would like to get involved, email michelle@theroundchapel.org.uk in the first instance.

Annual Review 2020

2020 was a year that has required a lot from us all: energy, positivity, commitment and tenacity.  It was a year when we had to change and adapt the ways in which we work.  Living through a pandemic has truly shown solidarity, strength and resilience of our community.

This annual review gives an overview of some of what we achieved in the last 12 months.  With enormous thanks to everyone involved.

If you would like to receive a paper copy email info@theroundchapel.org.uk and we’ll pop one round.
