Access to the main part of the church is level from the pavement. There is a simple lift to the first floor and a few small steps into the Old Vestry meeting room. However access to this room from outside the church is up some steep steps.

We have an induction loop fitted , which works in the main Worship space ( The Nave ).

Large print hymnbooks and some service cards are available, please ask.

There are always some gluten free biscuits around! Gluten free Communion wafers are also available, please ask someone when you arrive in church.

Our Building

There are two separate areas where we have stained glass windows - the major one is a beautiful window behind and above the high altar in the Chancel. The second is on the opposite end of the church , which following re-ordering is now visible from the mezzanine floor . An old photograph has been uploaded showing the window , after the old organ had been removed , and before the building work had started.

Music and Worship

We have a digital organ which is used at least twice each month and the sound is comparable with a pipe organ.

St Paul's Worship musicians have guitarists, drums and pianos ( both digital and manual) . They play music twice each month. Other services have recorded music to sing to.
