Thank you for visiting our website, we hope that you will find enough information and detail on here to give you a picture of who we are as a church.
At this challenging time as we all deal with the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is more important than ever to be Jesus to everyone around us, our neighbours, friends and our family. We are called to love God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength and LOVE our neighbours as ourselves.
We hope you’ll be able to continue to connect with the St Paul’s Community at this time, if this is your first time here, please do get in touch and we’ll try and connect you with people that are local to you or a Life Group meeting virtually.

We would love to stay in touch with you during this crisis, whether that’s by bulletin emails, messages and updates, or just so we can get in contact with you personally.
At this time, we would love for everyone in our community to connect to a Life Group where you can get ongoing support, be a part of Google Hangouts / Video calls and keep in touch with friends.
Our Response to COVID-19 Crisis
Mark & Lindsay back in the UK
Most of you will know that Mark and Lindsay have been away on sabbatical and had planned to be away until the beginning of May. However, they have decided with great regret to pause their sabbatical early because of the Coronavirus crisis and are now back in the UK.
The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has confirmed that the Government’s new social distancing guidelines do apply to places of worship, something that the Church of England have now applied to all services. He also advises that people avoid gathering with friends and family but instead keep in touch by phone and the internet.
Therefore we have to announce that St Paul’s Church will be ceasing all Sunday services and groups, including all Life Groups until further notice.
This of course begs the question of how we continue to stay in touch and pray for our nation with each other and our neighbours during this difficult time.
Each Sunday morning we will stream an online service at 11am, with worship, message and more…
The church office will be operating on reduced hours and we have asked staff to work from home.
We want to be able to offer support, as best we can, to everybody and to ensure that nobody is left feeling completely isolated. This will require all of us using our phones, tablets and emails to be in touch with each other. If you are able to, why not follow St Paul’s on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. We will be posting regular updates and information there as well as on our website and app.
First, of course, you must look after yourself. Anybody who is unwell needs to self isolate, as we know, and anyone with a weakened immune system needs to take extra care.
Next, let’s offer one another support. Please look out for your neighbours and if you are healthy and can offer to do shopping for them should they need it, please drop it at their front door and let them know. Please remember to wash hands for 20 seconds regularly and when leaving and arriving back home. The Archbishop of Canterbury has suggested that all Christians practice praying the Lord’s Prayer as we wash our hands and offer the concerns of this nation and the world into the Lord’ hands.
We are suggesting to all those who are members of Life Groups that you find new ways of meeting online and we are sending to all Life Group leaders suggestions of ways of doing this.
Please stay in touch with us via the website, social media, or email and lets together, in prayer and with wisdom, support and care for each other and our nation.
