At the 150th celebration of St Paul's, the Rev Kenneth Prebble (former vicar) was asked what made St Paul's so special. His answer was simply that "St Paul’s is a place where sinners found redemption.” His son, Rev Edward Prebble said that his dad was always rather surprised at the power and effectiveness of his ministry, and always thought that was because of the sovereign grace of God, and not because of any particular abilities of his own.
