Latest news

St Paul’s Toilet Fund

"In for a penny, in for a pound"

We need your help...

At the moment we have no toilets in the church building - the nearest are at the bottom of the churchyard in the church hall. This is very inconvenient for baptisms, weddings, funerals, and other church services and social activities beneficial to the local community.

So we're planning to have two toilet cubicles, one fully accessible for mobility impaired users, installed in church at a cost of around £80,000 - costing this much largely because the church buildig hasn't got a sewer pipe outlet and the nearest connection for one to be laid is at the church hall.

How you can help us...

  1. make a Bank Transfer donation to Barclays, Woodford Broadway Branch sort code 20-52-74 account no. 10775215
  2. put your donation in a blue Gift Aid envelope available in church and mark it "Toilet" (cheques payable to ST. PAUL’S PCC)
  3. contact St Paul’s Treasurer Len Stevens for further information.

Who we are

We are a Christian Parish Church in Essex in the Diocese of Chelmsford, and part of the Church of England. We are here to spread the ‘Good News’ about God and his Son Jesus Christ.

The Bible says “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but may have eternal life” (John 3:16). That means those who ‘follow’ Jesus Christ, who love his company, respect his teaching, trust his promises and are prepared to let this affect their lives.

Life events

Contact the Vicar to arrange a baptism, wedding or funeral.

Groups and activities

We are a friendly church and you will find a warm welcome at our services and church groups.

For children, we have a Children’s Sunday Church Club every Sunday at 10:00 in the hall, we run Children’s Holiday Clubs and we have a Christian Playgroup which runs each morning in our Church Hall.

For Senior Citizens, we run a Seniors’ Coffee morning on the first Thursday in each month.

We have an active Mothers’ Union and our Textile Group has created inspiring and colourful banners for the church and meets fortnightly.

“Just for Girls” meet fortnightly on a Tuesday morning from 10—12 noon for Worship, Meditation, Prayer and Fellowship. The group is open to women who are members of St Paul’s church. Please contact Pauline Bolding for further details.

Wheel Chair Access Sign St Paul’s welcomes anyone who is disabled - our Church has disabled access facilities through the South Door off the Main road, and a hearing loop for anyone using a hearing aid.
