About Us

St Paul's is an evangelical Anglican church in the Diocese of London. 

We meet weekly for worship on Sunday mornings for an accessible service characterised by songs from different eras, sermons, Bible reading and prayers, sometimes led by a member of the congregation.  The service is projected onto a screen for ease of participation. The service is followed by refreshments in the Church Centre.

Individually and as a community we long for renewal through the Holy Spirit, so that we can know and experience more and more of the amazing and unconditional love of God in Jesus and be channels of that love to others. We seek to know and to share the joy and fullness of life that Jesus came to bring and to be partners with him in the transformation of his world. Our ministry and mission are shaped by an orthodox understanding of Christianity as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, set out in the catholic creeds and to which the historic Anglican formularies bear witness. 

Our theological position falls within the evangelical tradition of the Church of England. In essence this means we are:

Committed to:

  • the final authority of the Bible in all matters of belief;
  • the uniqueness and finality of Christ, the Son of God;
  • the free gift of eternal life for humankind only through his death on the cross and resurrection;
  • the need for personal acceptance of Christ;
  • the teaching of Scripture as the normative ethical framework and guideline in human relationships, upholding faithfulness in marriage between a man and a woman in lifelong union, and abstinence for those not called to such marriage; 
  • the ordained ministry of women; and 
  • the mission-shaped calling of the church. 

Open to:

  • the insights of biblical scholarship;
  • the renewing presence and power of the Holy Spirit; 
  • new patterns of worship, prayer and liturgy;
  • learning from other Christian traditions, including those in the developing world; and
  • playing a full part within the structures of the Church of England.
