• St Paul's

    Making connections within ourselves, with other people
    & with God.

  • About us

    It is our desire, our hope, our prayer, our aspiration, that any and all who find themselves within the orbit of St. Paul’s might make deep and abiding connections through our services, our community involvement and our pastoral care – connections within ourselves, with other people, with the planet we share and with the God in whom all things hold together. Our aim is to support one another to live authentically as we seek to respond to the love of God.
     
    As part of the Church of England in the diocese of Ely, we affirm the 5 marks of mission of the Anglican communion (www.anglicancommunion.org), to tell, teach, tend transform and treasure by committing ourselves:
    • To be ready to share our stories with others.
    • To be a loving community.
    • To express love and compassion for our neighbours.
    • To work together with others for just institutions both locally and across the globe.
    • To care for creation.
    Our building is a thriving community overseen by a dedicated staff. Our inviting foyer and garden, a green refuge on a busy road into the centre of Cambridge, is open to all. The building is used by many different organisations, local, national and international, for celebrations, classes, meeting, conferences and social and cultural events and of course church gatherings.

    As a church we are also members of two networking and educational organisations:
     
    Inclusive Church (www.inclusive-church.org) Is a network of churches, groups and individuals uniting together around a shared vision which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate. It encourages the exploration of ways to be more inclusive, including matters of ethnicity, disability, mental health, gender, sexuality, and economic power.
     
    A Rocha UK Eco Church (www.arocha.org) Underlying the work or A Rocha is a biblical faith in a living God who made the world, loves it and entrusts it to the care of humanity. They carry our work cross-culturally in conservation and restoration and work in partnership with a variety of organisations and individuals who share concerns for a sustainable world.

  • Arts Festival 2021

    We believe that the expression of human creativity through the range of artistic media is an essential part of being human and having meaningful lives. Culture and artistic expression gives us insight into who we are.

     

    Since 2016 we have been involved in organising cultural and arts events including a bi-annual festival. These have been held in the Spring and consisted of an art exhibition, plays, musical performances, talks and art/music/writing workshops. The 2020 Arts Festival was to be spread over the year, at weekends, but after hosting two events things were put on hold except for one drama performance which we held in a Covid Safe environment in the summer.

     

    Having been awarded a grant from Community National Lottery Fund to work with children we commissioned an online children's performance and workshops through Full House Theatre Company.

  • Our Story

    History of St. Paul’s and Remembrance

    The site was sold by Caius College in 1839 to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners and the church was built as a chapel of ease in 1841 at a cost of £5,766. It became an independent parish a few years later. It was designed by Ambrose Poynter (1796-1886), a pupi lof John Nash who had a long and wide-ranging career as a church architect. Designated a Grade II building, the interior of the church was converted in 1996 and then again in 20—to create a more flexible space for church gatherings and for community use.
