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 may not be able to have the larger services we used to have in the church building at the moment, but we are still meeting.

  • 9am Holy Communion: – a short socially distanced communion service in the church building every Sunday, spaces are be limited due to rules on social distancing and you need to book up to one week in advance via the link on the calendar on our Services and Events page. This service is also steamed live on our Facbook page.
  • 10.30am LiveStream Worship Service: – a service of worship, teaching and prayers broadcast from the church building live on Facebook every Sunday. Followed by conversation and coffee via Zoom.

Both services are available on our YouTube Channel after the LiveStream.
