We've been blowing the cobwebs off the old parish database and figure that one or two of you might have changed some of your details in the past five years, so we decided - let's have a census! Completing the census will make sure our data is all up-to-date so that we can connect with you well, and register you as an official member of St Paul's. If you are 16 years or over you will also be included on the parish roll, allowing you to attend future St Paul's AGMs with the power to vote - bonus! If you have any questions, email Doreen. Click here to join the flock!

A dispute between two members of the St Paul’s congregation found a public stage when this notice was placed in The Observer on 12 March 1881. “A lady correspondent thinks that if Miss Lily R., who sits in Mr. T's pew at St. Pauls' Church, would kindly wear a smaller hat, it would enable those sitting behind to see the pulpit and possibly the clergyman, as well as being more in keeping with other parts of her dress, and the occasion.”
