We aim to be a traditional ‘middle-of-the-road’ church
Other regular services at St Paul’s include Harvest Festival followed by a Parish Lunch; All Souls Service; and a Civic Remembrance Day service for the town. The Patronal Festival is celebrated in January followed by lunch. There is a full series of services through Holy Week to Easter Day (see photos for Easter 2018). At Christmas, there is traditionally a Christingle and Crib Service on Christmas Eve, and a Midnight Eucharist. Services for the young families in 2016 have included special events at Candlemas and Palm Sunday.
A recent addition has been a special afternoon service at the Fell Church for those people who receive Communion each month in their own homes because they are unable to get to church. However, three times a year – Christmas, Easter and in the summer – transport is arranged to bring them to the Fell Church for a simple service, followed by afternoon tea.
