What we do

Liturgy - as Christians, we believe that worship is at the very heart of what we are and what we do. It is our duty and privilege to gather in the church day after day to offer prayers and praises to God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is our God but also our Father. Jesus is our Saviour but also our Brother. The Holy Spirit is our Lord but also our Friend. For this reason our worship is characterised by reverence but also joy, solemnity but also intimacy. To learn more about how we worship, please see the SERVICES menu.

Outreach - St. John writes: "He who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen." Since the 18th century, Anglo-Catholic churches has been built in areas of deprivation. We believe that we cannot worship and love God in good conscience, if we do not try to help those in need. We have a Benevolent Fund for the residents of Westham, we are part of Safe Sleep offering shelter and hot meals to homeless people, our Governors dedicate time and resources to our children at Beechcroft St. Paul's Primary School, our Congregation actively supports the food bank. If you want to be involved in our social work, please, contact us.

Community - People at St. Paul's are like family: we have good times and sometimes we have more difficult times, but we love and help each other. We have a lively social life with various clubs, meals, pilgrimages together. Our Fundraising Team is excellent at organising garden parties, BBQs, bazaars. We take care of each other. If you want to be part of our family, just find something that suits you under the menus PARISH HALL and WHAT'S ON. We very much look forward to welcoming you!

Who we are - a brief history

St. Paul's is a Church of England Parish in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. 

The church was built to serve the residents of Westham in the late 19th-century. Works started in 1894, following the designs of George Fellowes Prynne.

The first church was completed in 1896 and St Paul's was dedicated by the Bishop of Salisbury but extensions and embellishment continued until the 1950s.

Worshipping God

We are proud of the beauty of our worship. On Sundays we use incense and sing traditional hymns, during the week our worship is simple and meditative. We have various prayer groups, too. Come and discover the richness of Anglo-Catholic liturgy.

Proclaiming Christ

In Christ Jesus we have received forgiveness, joy, peace, healing, and life everlasting. We are excited to share the Good News with you, so come and hear the Message: no one can separate us from the love of God! In Christ God gave us everything, even Himself.

Helping those in need
