Your First Visit

+ During the pandemic, our Archbishop Paul has limited attendance at our services.  Sunday attendance in the sanctuary is in assigned groups, but many other services are available for online sign-up.

+ Our commitment to welcoming visitors hasn't changed. If you are interested, call or email and we will  find you a spot.

+ Many at St Paul's have come to Orthodoxy from other traditions. We remember making that first visit ourselves and would love to help you find your way around.

+ Our children stay with us in the service - yours are most welcome.
