Description

A small Victorian church which is shared with a Serbian Orthodox congregation. The church features an iconostasis. A quiet oasis of peace and prayer which welcomes visitors and pilgrims. St. Paul's is not far from a busy road but feels a world away. Candles can be lit and prayers left, and often are. A very special place which is often remarked upon for its prayerful atmosphere and simplicity. This is a church which is regularly prayed in and you can feel that this is the case. A place to sit and be quiet and to ponder.

Standard opening times: Open every day.
Services: Sundays – 8am Prayer Book communion on 2nd Sunday of each month (+ Holy Days ie Easter etc.), 11am All-age worship on 3rd Sunday each month.
Quiet days and individuals/groups can be accommodated by arrangement.
