Services every Sunday at 10.30am
St Paul’s sees itself as a normal Church of England parish church with no extremes. Each Sunday we hold a traditional (Book of Common Prayer) Communion at 8am (no singing) and at 10.30am about 70 adults and 20 children gather for worship using Common Worship. Twice a month this is a Sung Eucharist with a robed choir and traditional hymns. Once a month (usually on the first Sunday of the month) we have an All Age Service which might include a few more modern songs and visual aids. The other Sunday is usually Morning Prayer with hymns, bible readings and a sermon.
Children are welcome and participate in Junior Church from the age of 3 and older. There is a soft play area at the back of church where parents can sit with small children and still follow the service as we have a PA system to ensure that everyone can hear. Refreshments are served after the morning service in church.
We have strong links with our Church Schools: St Paul’s Heathside Grove and St Paul’s Crompton Street and children from Mesne Lea Primary also visit the church from time to time.
We have an active branch of the Mothers’ Union and a variety of social events, details of which can be found in the monthly parish magazine.
