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.




8am:  Prayer Book Holy Communion - A traditional communion service
(2nd and 4th Sunday only)

10.30am: Sung Parish Holy Communion - This is our main Sunday service accompanied by the parish choir with hymns and a psalm or anthem.


At the 10:30 service at St Paul's we have Sunday Zone which caters for both primary & secondary aged children.


On the first Sunday every month we have a Quiet Reflective service at St Martin's church. This is at 5.00 pm and includes opportunity for contemplative prayer. We also have traditional evensong from time to time.  Please see newsletter and forthcoming events for more information.



The Church is normally open to visitors on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am till 12noon. At other times by appointment through the church office.
