St Paul's is a thriving and growing church community that seeks to live out the good news of Jesus Christ in the heart of the Lisson Green and Church Street Estates, Marylebone. We are an inclusive and outward-looking church. We seek to live out our Christian faith by loving God and loving our neighbour. We work in partnership with a wide range of local and national organisations to nurture a flourishing and life-giving community and we welcome hundreds of people through the doors of our church each week. We are actively engaged in the local community. We work closely with our church school, Christ Church Bentinck CE Primary School, recently awarded Outstanding by Ofsted. We are proactive in striving for the good of our community - engaging with groups such as the Church Street Ward Neighbourhood Forum and working closely with local faith communities - such as our partnership with West London Synagogue and Foodcycle to offer a free community (three-course) meal every Wednesday night to over 60 people at the church. We work with adults with learning difficulties to prepare a soup-lunch every Friday for a local drop-in centre; and we spend time in the local cafes, pubs and along the market to get to know and pray for our local community. We are part of the national EcoChurch movement and the children in our church lead a monthly Climate Club. We recently restored our church roof and installed solar panels and we are working on designs a gardening space outside the church. We gather for prayer and worship on a daily basis (Morning and Evening Prayer & Bible Brunch) and our main Sunday gathering takes place at 10am every week. The church congregation is diverse and ranges from infants to the elderly; we share in the Eucharist, listen to the scriptures and reflect on them, and pray for our community, city and nation and offer healing prayers and anointing on a regular basis. There are lots of ways to get involved in the life of St Paul's and there are always new opportunities opening up as we respond to God's call to serve our community - why don't you come along and discover more!
