St. Paul’s Church

Team Vicar: Revd Matt Malins
Church Wardens: Kay Pickford & Rachel Billington
Safeguarding Officer: Barry Wilson
Parish Administrator: Felicity Oates

Built in 1971 with a seating capacity of 80, the daughter-church of St Paul grew from its two original homes, the first site in the early days of the Parish being at the Church school in Ball Haye Green, moving in 1934 when the new school of Beresford Memorial was built. It is a multi-purpose building serving both Church and Community on the eastern extremities of the Parish.

The building is used extensively throughout the week by members of the local community for a variety of events.

St Paul’s Church works closely with St Luke’s Church, Fountain Street, and many of our activities involve both congregations. Please check on the location given with each of our events
