- FUNDRAISING APPEAL -
For the thousands who walk or ride up Hills Rd each day on their way to the historic city centre of Cambridge, St Paul’s Church, a Grade two listed building with its prominent tower, is a striking landmark. The church garden beside the tower is a small oasis of green, offering many a place for resting, drinking coffee, or lunchtime refreshment.
Visitors who venture inside will find an extensive and beautiful space which provides a community space as well as a place of worship, where throughout the week, a variety of groups now pursue activities to promote health and well-being or share resources through the food bank and hospitality meals.
Within the building, over 1000 people each week attend a range of positive community events and the ethos of the church is to welcome all and support the community in which it is situated through all its facilities, which are shared with groups of all faiths or none.
