Welcome to St Paulinus Church in the parish church of Crayford, Kent, a 12th century church in the 21st century.

We are part of the Church of England Diocese of Rochester and work with the other Christian churches in Crayford as part of the Churches Together In Crayford ecumenical group.

For a thousand years or more there has been a church standing on Crayford Hill. It has been enlarged and altered over the centuries to meet the needs of the changing population of the Parish of Crayford.

The congregation today want to make known the love of Christ in the community.
