St Paul's, Shurdington is a medieval village church set next to the village green and borders the fields leading away to Cheltenham and Badgeworth. Its most striking feature is the fine broach spire of elegant proportion reaching to 110 feet. The church is thus higher than it is in length!
As a smaller ,intimate building inside it's a special place to pause and find some quietness at any time. Prayer guides are available as well as booklets about the church and village. The interior features a rare 13th century font and fine 12th century sturdy chancel arch.
The congregation, made up of villagers and people from the outskirts of Cheltenham, are very welcoming to visitors and newcomers. Coffee is served in the adjacent church hall after worship.
On weekdays there are plenty other church and parish groups meeting for people of a variety of ages.

Enquiries about baptisms, weddings and burials should be made to the Associate Priest. The church can seat about 100 comfortably.
