What to Expect?


Some key information about our services


Where & when does the church meet?

Our Church meets every Sunday at 10.00am for our main Sunday service and on the first Sunday of the month at 6.30pm for our monthly prayer and praise meeting. Aim to arrive 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.

We meet at:

St Paul's Church,
100 Efford Lane

You can see a map on our contact us page

There is limited parking available on the site.  Please respect our neighbours when parking on side streets nearby.

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a warm welcome and there will be church volunteers who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go.  Just ask!  They will also give you our weekly noticesheet.  All the words that we sing or say appear on a large screen, so you don't need to worry about lots of books or bits of paper.  There are no set seats - simply find yourself a place.

Free tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.

Are children welcome?

We love to welcome families to St Paul's.  Different types of children's activities are available depending on their age and stage.  Sometimes we stay all together for the whole service, and there's something for all the family.  At other times, the children leave part way through the service for their own age-related activities with our dedicated leaders.  At all times, there's a selection of books and toys available for little ones to play with through the service.

All our children's leaders are appropriately trained and have up-to-date DBS clearance.

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.


I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them.

Please feel free to contact us. If you want to know who works in the church office, check out our Meet the Team page.
