Welcome to St Paul's website. Click on our Virtual Tour under the 'Our Church' side heading & scroll to the bottom, where you click on the Virtual Tour so that you can have a look at what the inside of the Church looks like, ideal if thinking of being married here.
St Paul's was built in 1869 for the railway workers and was known as The Railwayman's Church' and is surprisingly beautiful inside. We are located on an island - the New England Triangle traffic Island - with Lincoln Rd on one side and Bourges Boulevard & main entrance on the other side. The church is perfect for weddings with the car park beside the church; enquiries for baptisms/christenings are welcome & the service is normally held early on Sunday afternoons. Rev Ron is available for funerals, whether in the Church or at the Crematorium. Please contact us on 314117 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for any of the above or if you have any kind of pastoral request we might be able to help with. We have a loop system in the church for the hard of hearing; a car park beside the church; toilets in our Church Hall next door; coffee & tea after our Sunday morning services & after the 1st Weds in the month Eucharist.

Lay Pastoral Minister: Mrs Val Watkinson: Children & Families Worker-Gill Thompson
Our monthly 'T @ 4' Church held at 4pm in Church at the end of each month (see Diary page for dates) & ideal for all who want to bring young children to enjoy some craft, with a bible story on dvd, a prayer & singing and then at 5pm sandwiches & cakes. All ages are welcome to come along. We have grandparents, parents & grandchildren! We have just appointed a part-time Children & Families Worker who began in June and is getting involved with families at 'T @ 4' and also getting to know families whose children are at the Zig Zag Day Nursery in the Church Hall. The Church is in partnership with the private Nursery. This summer we have had 2 Summer Drop-In times from 10-12noon (the last one will be on 23rd August) for children (plus an adult/s) meeting in church for refreshments, craft and activities.
Each month, either on a Tues or Thursday we also have St Paul's OASIS Time from 2pm to 3.30pm in church (see Diary Dates or Notice Sheet). All ages welcome to call in, stay for as long as you want; have a drink & some cake; chat or share some concern you might have. As well as the 10.30am Sunday & Weds Eucharist services there is an opportunity to meet with others mid week to look deeper at the teaching from the Bible. This often includes some prayer as well as getting to know one another better. Rev Ron was the Priest in Charge for 8 years here & on Sunday, January 24th 2016 he became the Vicar due to the lifing of the 1999 Suspension of the Living by the Bishop. His wife, Val, is the Licensed Lay Pastoral Minister. They, together with those on the Parochial Church Council (PCC) & other members of the church continue to seek to be relevant in the community and parish of New England and wherever God places them. If you look at our Prayer List you will see how important prayer is to us and give thanks to God for many answers to our prayers. Our weekly Notice Sheet can be found on the Notices page which will have more up to date information on & events on the Diary page. It can also be sent direct to you by email.
ALPHA, a course to find out more about the Christian faith, is held regularly & all encouraged to come on one, there is always something new to learn!
