Welcome to St Paul's Church
We seek to welcome all people into our Church family without exception. Adoption of the Inclusive Church statement is not just a ‘tick-box’ exercise for St Paul’s. It is the beginning of a listening process through which we will deepen the church’s long-term commitment to including all.
St. Paul's Church is in the centre of Withington, south Manchester. Click here for a map of our location.
We gather for worship on Sundays, at 10.30am.We also have regular activities, and other events throughout the week (see here).
The congregation includes people of all ages and from a range of backgrounds. We provide separate activities for children and young people. Please see our accessibility section for access information. Everyone is welcome to join us for refreshments after the service which is an important part of the church’s social life. If you decide to join us on a Sunday, do introduce yourself to one of the clergy.
Music is an important part of our main service, and we are fortunate to have an accomplished choir. Please see here for more details about music at St Paul's.
St Paul's Parish Hall is used by our friends in the L'Arche community every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Mondays we host L'Bee Tea Room:
Video, and 360° pictures of St Paul's
This video shows how to get to St Paul's from the cross-roads, via the car park. It also shows the entrance to The Hive/church hall:
Altar/Main part of Church (360° picture)
Note: there is a little distortion on the above image, there is, in fact a clear pathway right up to the alter from the seats.
Narthex (360° picture)
Note: the above is where we have our refreshments after the service.
Side chapel (360° picture)
A smaller chapel with its own alter, often used in evening and early morning services when there are fewer people attending.
Note: to get to the side chapel, you should walk into the main bit of church, and then go down the right hand side as you face the front, until you see the side chapel in front of you.
