SUNDAY: 09:00am-1:00pm (5:00pm when there is evensong)


St. Paul’s Church is open far more often than most churches. However, PLEASE NOTE that the church and grounds may occasionally have to be closed for maintenance or for production reasons. We try to post these closures on the ‘what’s on’ section of this website but, given the nature of live performance, it is not always possible to give advanced notice. If you are planning a special visit we STRONGLY advise phoning the office in advance.



There are 5 entrances to the church, 2 on the Piazza, 1 on King St., 1 on Henrietta St., and 1 on Bedford St.

Vehicle access is available via the Bedford St entrance.

There is wheelchair access to the church via Bedford St and Henrietta St. and a ramp at the steps of church into the main nave of the church. In 2017, we are also proud to say we have a disabled toilet which can be accessed on request.

Unfortunately, there are no public toilets onsite. There are however public toilets just a few minutes walk away, next to the portico of the church in the piazza.
