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.

Where we are

You can find us on St Stephen’s Road, just up from Roman Road market, on the way to Victoria Park. The church is in a great location at the heart of our community, close to shops, cafes, pubs and bus stops.

Feel free to pop in any time we’re open, which is usually between 9am and 5pm on weekdays, and around the service on Sunday mornings. Our cafe is open from 10am to 3pm (see below). The building can also be open for events and other hires outside of these times, including evenings.

For more information about what’s on, see the calendar on the homepage.

We would love for you to join us any time, but especially at our Sunday service.
