June 2020 re-opening of church buildings for private prayer:

St Paul's will be open for individual private prayer every Monday morning from 10am -11am and every Thursday from 2pm - 3pm starting on Thursday 25th June. You can also ask for an appointment to attend the church for private prayer, by contacting Clare Stewart on 01242 862598. 

Visitors are asked to follow the steward's advice, including usual safe distancing and following the current guidelines e.g. use of hand sanitiser, wearing face masks or face coverings etc.  Thank you.

How are we being church at the moment?

Praying lots. Ringing friends and neighbours. Shopping for people. Staying home as much as we can.

Why not try saying the Lord's Prayer at noon, online or offline, from wherever you are?

Resources are available online and via email. We are livestreaming worship on our Facebook page, and some services are now on Zoom - see the Services and Events section for details.

New YouTube Channel

We now have a YouTube channel "Greenway Churches". Anyone can go to the channel to watch worship videos from our Facebook services, as well as special worship videos for children. Do take a look and subscribe to receive notifications when we add new videos.

Because church is still church, wherever we are. đź™Ź

In normal circumstances, we hold services in all three churches every Sunday, except on the 5th Sunday of the month when we often meet in Shurdington School to share worship with the school community, our sister churches and friends from Shurdington Chapel. 

Services in St Paul's are usually at 9.30am.

On the third Sunday of each month we hold a service of Prayer and reflection, with tea and Cake afterwards at 4pm, either in the church hall or the church.

We also run occasional family workshops during the main service, in the church hall. 

You are very welcome to come along any Sunday - you will be warmly welcomed.
