About Us

Who we are

St Paul’s is a church of England parish in the Diocese of Guildford 

We are fellow pilgrims supporting one another as we grow in faith. God is at the heart of our life together, and we seek to follow the example of Jesus in all that we do.  Our diversity is our strength and helps us serve God and our community as we try to live out the Gospel in our daily lives. God's love is real, it changes lives and the world around us.  We invite you to experience his love for yourself and share it with us! 

 

Our main Sunday service of  Holy Communion is at 10am.  Everyone is welcome - if you have not been before do introduce yourself or ask for help with anything you're unsure about. 

Children are welcome at all of our services.  Do involve them in what is happening - there's an area with some resources to help  or you might prefer to sit at the front where they can see better.  There's a Junior Church activity during part of the service on most Sundays.  On the third Sunday of each month all ages worship together as the whole family of God in a simpler service setting.  

We use a variety of musical styles - do let us know if you have  skills to offer.  

Refreshments are served at the back of the church afterwards -   do stay and have a chat - we're a friendly mixture of people! 

 

We have Messy Church at 4pm on the first Sunday of the month and a contemporary reflective service called SP@4 on the 4th Sunday. 

Our Parish has historically been a largely working class area, which has created a community that is a bit different to much of the rest of Surrey around it. In spite of growth and recent change, many of the old values still remain and are reflected in the congregation’s outreach and community ministry.  Among the most ethnically diverse congregations in the Diocese, we are an inclusive church that values diversity and welcomes everyone. 

Although we are not a wealthy congregation, we support several charity projects and raise money to give to a number of causes outside the church.  We try to be of practical use to our community, serving God through helping others.
