Welcome to St Paul's Church

imgAt St Paul's we are called to worship God in Jesus Christ and to make Christ known in our community. Whoever you are, we offer a space for you to draw nearer to God and walk with us.

 

Our churches stand in the centre of the Anglican tradition and we have an enthusiastic choir and a lively Sunday School called Sunday Zone which meets at St. Paul's at 10.30 am in term time. We have an extensive programme of youth and children's activities, running throughout the year.
