We know being new can feel daunting. We hope the information here will help you feel at ease stepping through our doors for the first time.
We are a family who share in the love of Jesus Christ. Our open evangelical Anglican church is full of ordinary people – office workers, doctors, drivers, teachers, unemployed, retired people. Some of us are single, married, divorced, single parents or widowed. We welcome you whoever you are, wherever you’re from.
Rev. Jeni McQuaid is the Vicar of St Paul’s. She is supported by a brilliant team. You can find out more about some of them here.
We love to worship together. With four services each week we hope you can find a service that feels like home.
Sunday 8:30am – Reflective spoken communion service
A said Communion service with space for silence and reflective ectio divina scripture readings, 30-35 minutes

On the first Sunday of each month this is an all age ‘Altogether’ Service lasting around 45minutes. We share Holy Communion every 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays lasting 75-90 minutes. On the 3rd Sunday we have a morning worship without communion.

It is also a privilege to hold services for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals.
There is so much more than “Sundays” at St Pauls. Our mid-week groups are at the heart of the life of the church. Whether you want to join us for something purely social, explore the basics of the Christian faith, or go deeper there is something for you.
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith which we run once a term over eleven weeks.
Each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
Home Groups focus is on doing life together, and that looks a little different for each group. Most share refreshments together, take time to share our weeks and pray for one another. Some groups follow a study course or look at a passage of Scripture together.
Gateway is an opportunity for people of the older generations in our community to meet together socially.
Prayer is central to the life of the church. We hold a joint churches prayer meeting each month either at St Pauls or All Saint. We also host a monthly day of prayer and fasting. We would love to support you in prayer you can get in touch though our prayer request form
Community Café happens on the first Saturday of every month. The Café is open 10:30-12:00 all the food and drink is free. There’s space to meet people, live music, and a selection of toys and children’s clothes for you to choose from.
There’s so much happening you can find out more on our What’s on page.
