What can I expect at a Church service?
We hope to make everyone feel welcome. While the structure of our services has a degree of formality, it is led in a way which is relaxed.
At St Paul's we welcome people at all stages of faith, so. if you are unsure about Christianity, are a sceptic or consider yourself to be a mature believer you are welcome to come along and participate in as much or as little as the service as is appropriate for you.
At our Thursday morning and 9am Sunday services you pick up a Service Bulletin which enables you to follow and participate in the worship. At our 11am Sunday service you will be given a Service Bulletin and a hymn book, for singing, which is led by a traditional robed choir.
At the services on Thursday and at 9am on Sunday, there is an opportunity to reflect together on the sermon.
At the end of each service, the clergy are delighted to speak to visitors and parishioners alike. There is also the opportunity to meet other people during refreshments, which takes place after.
Our Saturday evening gathering at 6pm takes place in the Labyrinth and is more informal, with refreshments available throughout the service and the opportunity for discussion.
What about children?
We would love to grow the number of children at St Paul's. Currently, we have toys for pre-school and elementary age children and at our 11am service, we have people who look out for families and will offer to play with your child, if parents/carers are happy with this.
How do I get there?
As a downtown church, we have excellent public transport links, but no parking! There are parkades nearby, should you wish to travel by car. We encourage people to walk or take public transit, if possible.
Is there a dress code?
Definately not! We are relaxed as to how you dress - some people like to dress up, many more are casually dressed.
