Our latest video services
From 6th September we re introduced services at St Paul’s
We are opening up for services again from the 6th September – please book into either our 9am or 10.15amm services by emailing or telephoning our church office, leaving a message stating your name (family name and group size) and which service you would like to be booked into for the month ahead, leaving your phone number or email address so we can contact you if we need to – CHURCH OFFICE email@example.com 01905 22022. If you can’t make it one week that’s fine, we just want to make sure we’ve saved you a space at the service you want to attend. Its important to note the 9am service will be for those more vulnerable due to age or medical conditions, and the 10.15 services will be for all ages, with children and young people very welcome! Whilst we can’t yet sing in worship together, we look forward to gathering together in God’s presence to enjoy Gods word and prayer and times of ministry. All services will be lead and managed by trained volunteers and staff who have your safety and the safety of the whole community at heart. Please check out our informal community agreement below to help you get a better understanding of what we have done and what you can do to help keep everyone safe.
We have taken various measures to make St Paul’s Church Covid Secure including:

If you’re a member of one of our Life Groups (and we know the majority of you are!), your Life Group leader will be in touch. We’re going to provide some resources to give you something to think about each week and your Life Group leader will co-ordinate a way that you can all stay connected and even meet up virtually – this could, for example, be via a WhatsApp, Hangout or even via Skype and Facetime. If you are not a member of one our Life Groups and would like to join one then please contact the church office via email email@example.com to call the office on 01905 22022.
Other activities at St Pauls – including our popular coffee mornings, Young@Heart and our Friday night Kidzone sessions – are all suspended during this period.
We really don’t want to lose touch in the coming months, so please stay in touch by visiting our website, following us on Twitter and Facebook and encouraging others in your Life Group and other small groups. Our ministry heads are all looking at ways of supporting the whole St Paul’s community in every way we can over the coming weeks and months.
With a lot of uncertainty at the moment, we know that many people in our communities have concerns and this is a great time to make a difference and look out for our neighbours and friends who may need some really practical help – like doing a food shop, walking a dog for them or collecting medication they may need. In many ways, there’s never been a better time to speak to your neighbour over the garden fence (make sure you’re two metres away,) and see if you can help them.
Government advice is constantly changing, so if the situation changes, we will update the information here and our social media sites as well.
In closing then, we just want to say how much you are loved by God and by the leadership at St Paul’s Church. These are uncertain times, but we know who is ultimately in control and we pray for God’s protection and strength for every one of you.
