Who we are

St. Paul's is an affirming, inclusive community that seeks to ensure that all people know they are valid, they are valued, and they are loved.  The congregation at St. Paul's has been working diligently over the years to build relationships with the wider community including  the Food banks in Essex (through our clothing cupboard), Community Living Essex, and the 2SLGBTQIA+ Community.

Advent & Christmas - 2022
Come and worship!

Journey with us this Advent and Christmas as we worship in a variety of ways:

Dec. 11, 11am - Lessons and Carols service with a focus on the Names of Jesus.  Come and listen to stories, sing festive music, and play with ornaments as we pray together and prepare for the coming of Emmanual, God with us.

Dec. 21, 7pm - Longest Night Vigil. Sometimes the journey to Christmas can be hard. This service offers scripture, music, prayers, candles, and silence as a way to bring whatever struggles we may be feeling to God and know that we are not alone.

Dec. 24, 7pm - Christmas Eve Traditional Worship. Scripture, music, prayers, candles, and Communion. All that you would expect to find on Christmas Eve.

Dec. 25, 10am - Christmas Day Come as You are Pajamas welcome worship. Yes many of us do come in pajamas as we enjoy a playful, relaxed celebration of Christmas morning. There will be scripture, music (with shakers), laughter, and Communion.

All are valid. All are valued. All are included!
