The church is transformed as we begin with refreshments around tables on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
There’s often a theme around encounters with Jesus and the opportunity to share our own reflections and experiences as well as listening to others. So it doesn't matter if you're not used to church. There are always activities for families and children to join in.
We are proud to serve the people of Warwick, working in schools and holding clubs in our hall.
If you are over 50 why not join us for a social evening between 7.30 - 9.00pm on the last Saturday of the month for food and fellowship. We have a varied programme of entertainers – speakers – activities – quizzes and more. Lifts can be arranged, for more information contact Pat Kibbler 01926 496552 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children of all ages are welcome at St Paul’s. There’s a Sunday Club for Primary age children and Creche facilities for babies and toddlers. However they’re welcome to stay with parents in church if they wish.
Our church is open on Thursday mornings each week from 10am to 12 noon. Drop in for a complimentary drink, a chat, a look around our beautiful building or just to enjoy a quiet moment.
T.A.N.G.O., which stands for Together As Neighbours Giving Out, is our community shop. We open in church on the first Monday of the month (except Bank Holidays) from 10.30am – 12.00pm. We sell clothes, toys, books, household items and much more and everything is just 50p! Free tea and coffee available. We hope to see you there.
St Paul's has long standing relationships with a range of local and international charities.
St Paul's has been involved with Operation Christmas Child for several years now and every year in September we start collecting boxes. We organise different events culminating in a service in November with Churches together in Warwick. Our biggest total so far has been over 1000 boxes!
And much more to get involved in, including helping with our local Foodbank.
Although I grew up in a Christian home it was only in my 20s that I really encountered Jesus through the presence of His Holy Spirit and that faith became alive. My desire is to see people encounter the living Lord and grow as a disciple of Christ, going on a journey from perhaps only knowing about Him to knowing Him personally and experience His transformative power in their lives.
Our large hall with flexible seating, tables and kitchen facilities is available for hire.
A wide range of groups use the Church hall on a regular basis - Fit2Dance for children, Flower Club, a friendship circle and Seniors' Club for the over 50's. The church hall is also used for various functions - children's parties, coffee mornings, fayres etc and is available for hire at reasonable rates.
A part of Warwick life from 1824
The population of Warwick grew rapidly in the early 1800s when the opening of the canal enabled many new industries to develop in the local area. The work-force was housed in the newly-erected streets in the western parts of the town, such as Crompton Street, Woodhouse Street, and Queen's Square. As the population grew, the churchyards of St Mary and St Nicholas became full and in 1823 both churches petitioned the Bishop of Worcester for extra burial space. (The Coventry diocese was only created in 1918.)
As a result, on 23rd July 1824 ground was consecrated in Friars Street and later in the same year a cemetery chapel was built. This was known as St Mary's Episcopal Chapel, being served by St Mary's, and was used exclusively for burials. Then in 1842 it was proposed that a new Free Church should be built. In 1844 the Parish of St Paul's was formed out of the western part of St Mary's Parish. The church was completed in the same year and consecrated on 26th July 1844 by the Bishop of Worcester, the Rt Revd Henry Pepys.
We are here to help - visits, prayer, baptisms, weddings, funerals, hall hire.
