Welcome to St. Paul’s

The community of St Paul’s United Church gathers and scatters every week.  We gather to root ourselves more deeply in the story and reality of God’s unstoppable love for the whole world. In gathering we touch into the Love that enlarges our hearts and our awareness. And then we scatter, to respond to life with courage – with mercy, generosity and forgiveness — born of that Love.

St.Paul’s welcomes you to be part of this life giving rhythm of gathering and scattering; St. Paul’s welcomes you to be part of this courageous endeavour!
