Welcome to St Paul’s Church, Clifton.
STOP PRESS: on Friday 19th January 2018 we advertised in the Church Times for a new vicar for St Paul’s, Clifton and Cotham Parish Church. The closing date is the 25th February.
St Paul’s is a diverse community of people on a journey of hope and faith, worshipping God as Father, Son and Spirit and encouraging one another to develop the gifts God has given us. St Paul’s is open most Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. Do come and visit this beautiful church, or join our worship on Sunday mornings.
St Paul’s has strong links with the parish of Cotham. There is one vicar for both churches, and a ministry team which shares with the congregation in organising and leading worship, giving pastoral care, and initiating other activities.
These churches are linked with St Matthew’s, Kingsdown to form the Highbury Partnership. We are also linked with the University of Bristol and have a student choir directed by the organ scholar. St Paul’s aims to be an “Open Church” in our Christian faith and practice:
- Open to questions of faith & doubt, lifestyle, justice & peace
- Open to people of all backgrounds
- Open above all, to the ultimate mystery we call God and to the life & teaching of Jesus.
Our congregation includes: old and young; single and married; gay and straight; waged and unwaged; students; people from a range of differing church, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
All are welcome
