Welcome. We’re glad you’re here.
We understand it can be daunting if you’ve never been to a church service before or you’re visiting a new church.
To make it easier, this page gives you some idea of what to expect and what a church service at St Paul’s is like.
When you come into the building, someone will greet you at the door and offer you a service booklet and song sheet. There are LARGE PRINT versions of these if you need one so please ask a sidesperson.
St Paul’s has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and has a wide range of people of all ages and backgrounds.
There are no wooden pews in St Paul’s! All the seats are comfortably padded and bibles are located along the rows.
Most morning services last about an hour or so or a little longer if communion is involved. Evening services, which are held at St Andrew’s, Hampton Bishop, last about the same time, although it can vary! If you need to leave during a service, no-one will complain if you slip out.
Don’t worry if it is a Communion service and you have not been confirmed or have a different faith. Everyone is welcome to either receive a blessing or take communion.
St Paul’s has an induction loop for the hard of hearing and is accessible for wheelchairs. Toilets, if you require one, are located in the adjacent hall. There is also a disabled toilet.
Parking space is limited at the church, but many park in the nearby roads. Disabled parking spaces are located in front of the hall.
During most Sunday morning services the children aged 2 and upwards can leave for their own activities with Discoverers. These activities are run by helpers who are CRB checked. If you would like your children to go along, they are welcome. We also have a creche situated in the Vestry, if you are not sure about these activities please ask a sidesperson or a welcomer who will be pleased to help.
After the 10.00am service coffee, tea and biscuits are served in the hall adjacent to the church. You are welcome to come and join us.
We look forward to seeing you.
