In 1841 the Rev. Churton prayed these words at the laying of the foundation stone of St Paul’s, “We desire to build it as a temple for the worship of the One Lord God, our Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier, the Holy and Eternal One of Israel, as a house of prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. Do Thou Lord, graciously and favourably look upon us; prosper the work and bless its sacred purposes. In it, as Thy house, may our humble prayer be heard, and Thy worshippers made spiritually joyful.”
