Welcome to St Paul’s!

At St Paul’s we aim to offer a warm welcome to everyone; to be a family which includes young and old, married and single, those with children and those without, people from all sorts of different backgrounds. We offer differing styles of worship at our various services (when these are able to happen in our building), but at all of them seek to worship God, follow Jesus, and listen to the Holy Spirit. Do join us!

Join our Services

We are meeting weekly on Sundays for the following services.

  • Communion at 9am: – a communion service from the Church of England’s Common Worship. Once a month this is replaced by Morning Prayer. This service is also steamed live on our  YouTube Channel .
  • Worship at 10.30am: – a service of worship, teaching and prayers. This service usually includes communion twice a month. This service is also streamed live on our  YouTube Channel .

Note we do ask that you:
– maintain high levels of sanitation, and safe and considerate distancing;
– continue wearing a face covering in the building – especially when singing;
– that you don’t attend if you are showing any symptoms of Covid-19;
– and that you give your name to the Steward as you arrive for the service for Test and Trace purposes.
