About us

St Paul’s is a vibrant mix of people and groups from the local community, who are loving God and seeking transformation.

By showing welcome and hospitality to all and by working with organisations such as Ability Bow and IntoUniversity,  St Paul’s is a place where people, young and old, can find healing and hope.

The good news of Christianity is worked out as we see people break through educational barriers, get out of wheelchairs and walk, realise that they are accepted and valued, and find spiritual healing and joy.

Our prayer is that St Paul’s will continue to grow and flourish to become a beacon of hope and transformation far beyond Old Ford.

Church services

At St Paul Old Ford coming together for worship, prayer, and friendship is really important to our life as a church. We would love for you to join us at any of our services, but especially at our Sunday service.

Sunday morning: Our main service takes place on Sunday at 10.30am, in the church building and on Youtube. See the News page for more information on each service.

Midday prayer: We currently meet for midday prayer on Wednesdays at 12 noon.
