We try to open St Paul's church most days for private prayer or just to visit. Summer mid morning till early evening, and in winter mid morning till mid afternoon.

Of course we are open for Sunday Mass 9-30 and Weekday Mass Friday 12 o/c.

We are sorry if you find the church closed; please contact one of the churchwardens.

Getting here

The church is next to the Town Hall, a short walk from the railway station in one direction and the Trent and Mersey canal in the other. We are delighted to see holidaymakers and all visitors.

The 123' tower is one of the tallest buildings in the town, and clearly visible to travellers on the A38 and the railway.

Burton, in Staffordshire, is Britain's brewing capital, and legend has it that the first Lord Burton of the Bass brewing family, who built Saint Paul's, hoped the church would become a cathedral when Burton was made a city. Neither happened.

Since 1 November 2005, Saint Paul's has been part of a single parish with Saint Aidan, Shobnall. The parish is served by the Vicar, Fr Stanley Monkhouse, also Vicar of Saint Modwen's, the Parish Church of Burton, with the assistance of Fr Phillip Jefferies (retired)..
