Worship God with Us
St. Paul's is an Anglican Church in the heart of Cambridge, with a commitment to those on the edge.
Sunday Worship, 10.30am
Entrance on Hills Road - through the foyer into the main hall.
This service is the focal point of our weekly activity when we gather together to praise God. We gather around the Lord's Table which is placed in the centre of our worship space which creates a sense of 'God with us'. The Word (Bible) is read and opened for us from a range of preachers. We share in Holy Communion, the foundational worship of Christians (sharing in bread and wine). If you are new to worship and Christianity, please be assured that we will make you feel welcome and you can join in with as much or as little as you like. There is an informal choir which meets on special occasions and all are welcome to join and sing of whatever ability.
Children and Young People
There are groups for 4-11 year olds and 11+ youth group. 4-11ys meet every week, the youth meet every other week and join the main service every other week. There is an area for babes in arms in the main worship space. Children and young people are very welcome here and are invited to play a full part in our worship. We have some seasonal all-together services. Contact our Children and Family Worker to find our more: firstname.lastname@example.org

Monday Simple Supper Service

Each week at 6pm we eat a simple meal together, listening to each other's stories as we share our food together. People attend from the local community, the congregation and those who are homeless or in food poverty. The diverse mix of people make this an unusual special gathering which embodies our 'All Are Welcome' ethos. After clearing away, we have a short service in the chapel at 7pm during which we light candles for people and situations about which we are concerned. We suggest a donation of £2 for the meal but understand that not everyone is able to pay.
