We are a growing church with a wide age range including many young families. We have an active Sunday School which meets in Benjamin Hargreaves School and the Little Angels Group (creche) in the church hall. The uniformed organisations have groups which meet in our church hall.They are all encouraged to take an active part in our church life. We have choir and organist for Sunday service which on the first sunday of each month is Parade and All Age Worship.
There is a close practical working relationship with Benjamin Hargreaves Voluntary Aided C of E Primary School which is just across the road from the church. We share each other's facilities and have joint social and fund raising events.The church manages an Out of School Club mainly but not exclusively for the school. This meets in our church hall for breakfast and after school care
We have been very active in encouraging people into church through a variety of worship and social events. Social events take place in our church hall ( St. Paul's Church Hall and Community Centre) which is in daily use by many church and local community groups. We are part of the United Benefice of St. James(with St. Clements) and St.Paul.
