    a time to be born and a time to die' Ecclesiastes 3

    Pastoral Ministry

    Baptisms, weddings, funerals and more


    Anyone who lives in the parish of St Paul's is able to come to us for baptisms, weddings and funerals. You can find out which is your local parish church here. https://www.achurchnearyou.com/


    It is also possible to help those who don't live in the parish, so don't hesitate to get in touch. We would love to support you in the special and significant times in your life. There are different times in life when we feel particularly drawn to God and to the church, sometimes in joy and sometimes in sorrow. There is always a lot to talk and think about around these events and we are here to help in this process.


    Please contact the Vicar on vicar@stpaulscambridge.org.uk in the first instance.

    Prayers of Love and Faith: Celebrating Same-Sex Couples


    The Prayers of Love and Faith are offered as resources in praying with and for a same-sex couple who love one another and who wish to give thanks for and mark that love in faith before God. To celebrate in God’s presence the commitment two people have made to each other is an occasion for rejoicing. The texts are offered to express thanksgiving and hope, with prayer that those who are dedicating their life together to God may grow in faith, love and service as God’s blessing rests upon them. At the current time, these cannot be used in a stand alone service, but only as part of an existing service.


    Please contact our Vicar, Rev'd Imogen Nay, if you would like to discuss using these prayers. She would be very happy to hear from you.

    Baptisms or Christenings


    Christenings are a very special moment in the life of your baby or child. At St Paul's we will welcome you and your family as you recognise and give thanks for your child and God's blessing upon them.


    Older children and adults can also be baptised and that normally follows a period of learning and preparation. Do get in touch or come to one of our services if you feel God calling you in this way.

    Funerals or Memorial Services

    There are moments in our life when we seek the support and comfort of our local parish church to help us say goodbye to loved ones and to mark and celebrate the lives of our family members and friends. Do get in touch with the Vicar if you have recently lost a loved one and are considering a church service. She will be very happy to talk you through a Church of England funeral or memorial service, either in church or at the crematorium. She can also come to the Natural Burial Ground, do ask.
