WELCOME TO ST PAUL'S

Welcome to St Paul’s Church, Crofton (Orpington). Whether you are already part of the church, looking for a church, or live in the community and want to find out more about us, this site is for you.

It was wonderful to see over 70 seniors and up to 15 or so helpers/servers enjoying a celebratory tea–party in the church marking the end of the lockdown restrictions. Originally planned for the paddock, inclement weather forced us to change plans and have the tea indoors. We decided to host the tea in the Church as it’s a bigger space and better ventilated than the Church Hall. For many, it was an emotional and happy occasion as they had not seen other members of the Lunch Club for well over a year!

If you have not returned to church yet, why not come and try over the next few Sundays? We are well ventilated in a large space and should you so choose, you can sit in the gallery or right at the back of the church where singing is not allowed and mask-wearing is required so as to maximise protection.

Jesus said “For wherever two or three come together in honour of my name, I am right there with them!” (Matthew 18:20 TPT). Come and worship the Lord in person with your brothers and sisters in Christ!

We hope you’ll be able to connect with the St Paul’s Community at this time. If this is your first time here, please do get in touch and if you can't find what you're looking for, then why not email office@stpaulscrofton.org.uk If you, or someone you know, would like prayers at this time, please don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing us at prayers@stpaulscrofton.org.uk.

God bless,
Bimbi Abayomi-Cole
Vicar

WHAT'S ON AT ST PAUL'S

SUNDAY MORNINGS

We have 3 services every Sunday: A traditional Holy Communion at 8 am, Family Worship at 10.15 am and our new Evening Service at 6.30 pm. Our main morning service contains lively open worship (incorporating both traditional hymns and contemporary songs with a live band), a short sermon and prayers. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE

EVENING SERVICES

During our contemporary style evening services, we have an extended time of worship during which we share testimonies and what God might be revealing to us through words, pictures and Bible verses. We do not use any formal liturgy during this service but see it as a time to listen and respond to God and enjoy being in his presence.  CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE

THE ELDERBERRY CAFÉ

The Elderberry Café on a Wednesday serves hot drinks, homemade cakes and much, much more. It's a place where friendship, food and faith meet. Come and spend all morning or just 10 minutes catching up with friends and meeting new faces. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE
