Church Life


Following guidance from the government and the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, there will be no St Paul’s Church activities in the church building for an indefinite period. We will be streaming services where possible, and small groups will continue to meet and support each other online.

We will be sending out an email every Friday contacining information and resources so we can keep connected and support and encourage each other in our spiritual life. If you would like to be added to the distribution list for this, please email

If you are not currently in a small group but would like to be, please also email

St Paul’s is a sizable church, a community that’s made up of literally hundreds of people. We therefore have many smaller groups where people of different ages and stages in life can get together in a setting that’s tailored especially for them.

For parents and carers of pre-school children, we run four different Rainbows groups during the week in school term times. And a monthly group for Dads and their pre-school children on the third Saturday of every month.

For children from 0 to 11, we have a wide range of groups and activities both on Sundays and at other times.

For young people aged 11 to 18 our Youth Pastor, Charlie Auton, runs a lively and varied youth programme.

For adults of any age, small groups are a great way of getting to know people and learning, sharing and praying together. They meet at different times on different days, mostly in homes but also in church.

And for the over-55s, Evergreens runs a varied programme of activities, including talks, musical entertainment, outings and meals.
