Welcome to

St Paul’s Church





St Paul's is a lively, growing church on Coronation Road in Southville, overlooking the New Cut and historic harbourside in the heart of Bristol.

We aim to be a beacon of God’s love and a centre of worship and mission.

We believe worship is important and we try and be as creative as possible in our styles and approaches to praise and worship.


We believe God loves our community, and we do our best to share that love in all sorts of ways, from throwing great parties to telling people about the good news of Jesus.


It is with great sadness that we share that Adrian McInnes passed away last week. Adrian has been a loved member of our church for many years and our organist. We are sure many will have fond memories and admiration for his many gifts. He will missed.

Further details regarding funeral arrangements will be announced once confirmed.

Prayer Ministry

In this socially distanced time we are looking at how we can facilitate prayer ministry for those who want it. Even when lockdown ends it's tricky to pray at the front of church with 2 metres separating us!


Elizabeth and the team are offering a "Zoom Prayer ministry service".


It will be available on the third Thursday of the month from 7.00 - 9.00 pm.


People wanting prayer should email this email address  stpaulsprayerministry@gmail.com  to fix an appointment. Two members of the team will be available to pray with them.



There's always lots going on at St Paul's Church, whether it's a new series of worship and teaching, small groups, activities for young people, socials and music, or volunteering to help the homeless or those in need in our community

New Year, New Vicar!

We are delighted that our Curate Rev Jacqui Kean has been appointed as the new vicar of St Paul's and St Aldhelm's. We look forward to many years for fruitful ministry.
