St Paul's Quarndon
Welcome to St Paul's and thank you for looking. The church building is located at the top of Quarndon Hill in the village conservation area. The church spire can be seen from many vantage points locally including the sports fields at Woodlands school in Allestree which is also part of our parish.
We love to see people of all ages and we have very good links with our church school next door- The Curzon. School children visit the church every week for a Bible story told by volunteers from the church family and members of the ministry team visit the school weekly for their assemblies. Our monthly Sunday school 'SHINE' is popular with younger children and we enjoy worshipping with our young people, singing and waving our flags.
Our worship is informal- we don't expect you to know when to stand or sit, we're just glad that you came. Some of our church members have particular accessibility needs- our church level is flat and we have internal ramps onto the chancel area. We also have a toilet and a baby change area. The church is open every day and we encourage visitors to make a brew and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere whether in church or in the churchyard where you can look out across the open fields.
We have a prayer book in church which anyone is welcome to use- just write whatever you'd like us to pray for- you don't need to tell us any personal details. We'd love to get to know you and we hope that you find us a friendly, welcoming community. We love our after service chats over a cuppa, so please do stay and have a natter.
As on-road parking is limited in the village, we encourage folk to walk or bike to church. You can also park in the car-park located at the rear of the Church Hall which is next door to the church and is a 4 minute walk to the church door.
