WELCOME TO ST PAUL'S

Our buildings are open again for services, which are also available online

HELLO AND WELCOME!

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.  The good news is that we are open for worship again though as you may have heard we cannot sing!

We have our usual 8 am BCP (Book of Common Prayer) Holy Communion Service in the VCR and from 12th July our 10.15 am Service in the church as well.  Please see further information about services, what to expect and how to book your tickets as places are limited, on the Church Re-Start page here.  10.15am service also remains available online alongside All-Age provision for families

If you would like to enter the church for private prayer on Monday – Friday mornings this will be when the church office is manned. Please ring the bell to enter from the car park entrance.

As we continue to deal with the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is more important than ever for us to remember our calling 'to be Jesus' to everyone around us, our neighbours, friends and our family. We are called to love God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength and LOVE our neighbours as ourselves.

We hope you’ll be able to continue 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.

If you can, please join with us in praying for an end to the epidemic using this prayer: "In the authority given me as a son/daughter of God, I declare an end to the Coronavirus plague in the world in the name of Jesus Christ."

God bless,
Bimbi Abayomi-Cole
Vicar

IN NORMAL TIMES 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 new contemporary style evening services when we explore different themes. We begin with a time of sung worship lead by our band which is followed by a short talk and then an extended time of worship to respond to God's word. We do not use any 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

ALPHA COURSE

Everyone has questions. We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view - wherever they are in the world.

Starting soon at St Paul's. We have a host of people ready to cook, serve and lead the evenings so why not give Alpha a go?  CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE
