    • Improved access to the building for all
    • Improved energy efficiency of the building

    Why Help is Needed?

     

    St Paul’s is more than a venue. The Covid-19 Pandemic has had a dramatic effect on the income generated by the Centre, and while we regularly apply for grants, this often requires us to provide matched funding. Our congregation provides us with donations and legacies, but these cannot be relied upon to meet our ongoing costs.

    St Paul’s Church on Hills Road, Cambridge is a vibrant place of worship and community centre - a hub of social activity. We host groups, lunches, activities, clubs and classes every day of the week for the whole community.

     

    Our building is a local landmark within one of Cambridge’s Conservation Areas and our pocket park/garden offers a green oasis open to all.

     

    "We therefore need your help and invite you to become a friend, and in doing so, support your local community."

    "More than fifteen hundred people go through the doors
    of St Paul’s each week."

     

    Our community involvement and pastoral care takes us beyond the con- fines of the building. We work extensively in Newtown with residents and businesses, and offer hospitality at the Centre through regular hot lunches and suppers.

     

    We also operate on the international stage. Members of our community co-founded the amazing charity Street Child United, which hosts Football and Cricket World Cups for street children from all over the world.

  • Over 100 homeless people have been given support last year

     

    We work more broadly within Cambridge City addressing issues such as homelessness, providing a weekly winter night shelter and meal and supporting the work of the Cambridge City Foodbank.

    Over 350 hot meals are served
    every month

     

    Hospitality is at the heart of St. Paul's. We regularly share our stories together around the meal table.

     

    Bringing the community together

    The Arts and Environment feature in our work which includes a biannual Arts Festival, opportunities for music in the community, and ways to connect with the environment through walks, canoeing and camping.

    Changing the world for street children

    Street Child United enables street children to obtain a legal identity - changing their lives.

  • All of this valued activity makes use of, and relies upon, the built fabric of 

    St Paul’s, and the dedication of our staff and volunteers.
