PLEASE NOTE: Saint Aidan's, Saint Modwen's and Saint Paul's will be without a Vicar from 14 April 2013 following Father Paul's move to the Diocese of Rochester. During the interregnum this site will not be updated as regularly, and it may take a while to answer emails. Saint Aidan's and Saint Paul's Sunday 8.00am Eucharists will also be suspended until a new priest is appointed, as will Saint Modwen's evening service. Interim contact details can be found elsewhere on these pages.

You can find us in Saint Paul's Square, adjacent to the Town Hall, and a short walk from Burton-on-Trent railway station. Our 123' tower is one of the tallest buildings in Burton, and clearly visible from the passing A38 trunk road. Burton, in the English County of Staffordshire, is historically Britain's brewing capital, and legend has it that the first Lord Burton (of the Bass brewing family), who built Saint Paul's, secretly hoped it would become a cathedral when Burton was made a city – alas, neither event happened!

Today we are a small, family-oriented congregation, in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England. That means our principal form of worship is the Eucharist (also called the Mass or Holy Communion), and is celebrated with traditional ceremonial and music. This is because we believe that when we read the scriptures and share the consecrated bread and wine as Jesus commanded his followers to do, he is still with us in a special way. In addition to our regular services we have periodic social events and special courses, and our hall provides a home for a variety of community programmes, including Brownies, Yoga, and a mothers & toddlers group. The church is also usually open for visitors Mondays to Fridays between 12.00 noon and 2.00 p.m.

Since 1 November 2005, Saint Paul’s has been part of the newly-created Parish of Saint Aidan and Saint Paul, formed by the merger of Saint Paul’s Parish with the former parish of Saint Aidan, Shobnall. A parish is a geographical district served by one or more churches; you will normally need to live in the parish, or have a qualifying connection with one of the churches, if you wish to arrange a baptism (christening) or wedding in a particular church. If that is why you are visiting this site, or for any other information, you can contact the Vicar, Father Paul Farthing through this website. You can learn more about Saint Aidan’s by following the link on this page. Father Paul is also Vicar of Saint Modwen's, Burton Parish Church.

Historic records for Saint Paul's have been deposited at Staffordshire Record Office, where they are available for consultation by the public. These consist of the parish registers of baptisms 1874-1967, marriages 1874-1977 and banns of marriage 1892-1946 and 1973-1983. More recent records remain with the church. Please contact the record office in the first instance about records from these periods.
