Paul: St Pol-de-Leon
The word ‘Church’ refers not just to buildings but also to groups of people who gather together because of their shared faith and beliefs. So to describe “the Church” in Paul it is necessary to talk about who we are and what we believe .
As Christians we believe in a powerful, compassionate, loving, and supportive Creator God, who cares for each one of us, and wants us to care for each other. We believe that God revealed himself fully in the person of Jesus Christ. whose life, death and resurrection holds the key to knowing and loving God, and to making sense of life, before and after death. And we believe that God is alive and active today as His Spirit continues to inspire justice and truth, change lives and transform society.
Christianity is also about relationship and community, and here at Paul we particularly believe in building a community where no one feels excluded because of who they are or because of where they are in their journey of faith.
