St Paul’s Evenwood

St Paul's Evenwood is an ex coal mining village with a fantastic community spirit.

Since the 20th century, the church has been at the centre of Christianity in the north of England and today remains a thriving church rooted in the weekly offering of worship and prayer. As well as social events such as quizzes and fairs.

The church was built for the glory of God. Every aspect of this building - from the exquisite, handcrafted stone through to the interior design - tells the story of Jesus Christ.

We invite you to discover this sacred place and the love of God at its heart, which has attracted people from across the globe for more than 100 years.

10.15am every Sunday
