'We are situated at the heart of Ramsbottom, and offer a warm welcome'
St Paul's is open for services every Sunday at 11.00am where everyone is most welcome to join us in worship.
There is also a weekly Tuesday morning service of Holy Communion BCP at 10.30am.
Most Saturday mornings we hold a Saturday Café where we serve the best bacon butties and coffee in town. Our church is also open for private prayer and quiet contemplation.
We very much look forward to welcoming friends old and new.
For more information on any aspect of our church please feel free to contact our Curate in Charge the Rev Ian Fleming, our churchwarden, or our Team Administrator on: 07436887760 or email retmchurches[email protected]
'Church is not an organisation that you join,
it is a family where you belong,
and a home where you are loved,
and a hospital where you find healing...'
St Paul's is part of the Ramsbottom and Edenfield Team Ministry, which is made up of four churches which include St Andrew's, Edenfield and St Philip's. We have a variety of traditions but seek to work together alongside other Christians in our town, to share the 'Good News' of Jesus, and to show his love to all. Whether a visitor to the town, or just wanting to come on occasion, you are very welcome to join us for any of our services and join us for coffee and biscuits afterwards.“We wouldn’t want to claim we haven’t room for improvement, but we are trying hard to be the kind of church where people feel “welcome”
The church is led by the PCC which includes the Curate in Charge and Church Warden. The PCC and Warden are elected by those who have signed up to St Paul’s Electoral Roll at the APCM (Annual Parochial Church Meeting) which is held in April.
