Welcome from the Rector
Rev'd Simon Grigg
Welcome to St. Paul’s church website.
St. Paul’s Covent Garden is strictly obeying the government restrictions and we would humbly ask everyone to do the same. This is for our collective benefit. Thus, the church building and the grounds are closed. This does NOT mean that the church is closed. We continue to pray and to serve each other in whatever ways we can in these unprecedented times. If it is in your tradition, we invite you to pray with us, though not in person. Whatever your faith position, we wish you well and look forward to seeing everyone again, in person, when it is safe to do so.
Obviously, we are in very difficult times and uncharted waters. You will be aware that the theatre industry, for which we have a special care, is currently suspended. For all theatre folk, there is a website - theatresupport.info – which will be offering help and support.
Our sister organization is also available to help on www.theatrechaplaincyuk.com Twitter: @TCUKchaplains. The Reverend Lindsay Meader – Senior Chaplain of TCUK is also available on 07501 829491. Whilst St. Paul’s church grounds and building are closed, Fr. Simon is available for calls or by email. If you wish to speak on the phone, you may contact him on 07958 472568 or on email@example.com
God bless and take care.

Today's Services and Events
Wednesday 8th April 2020
No events scheduled for today!
This beautiful church, built by Inigo Jones, in the busy West End of London has been here since 1633.
St Paul's is the Parish Church of Covent Garden and therefore, as well as worshipping on Sunday, also provides various pastoral services such as Baptisms, Confirmations, Weddings, Funerals and Memorial Services.
we are proud to have an attractive churchyard where people can rest and find some peace and quiet in what can be a stressful and busy part of the city.
We run up to 400 unique events each year - from classic concerts, to musical theatre showcases and even a summer long outdoor theatre season.
St Paul’s Church is an ideal to place to hold an event or fundraiser. With our award-winning gardens we can cater to a number of unique events - both inside and outside.
