St Paul’s is a member church of the Benefice of St Paul’s Norden, St James Ashworth and St Michael’s Bamford. You are very welcome to visit St Paul’s, Norden, a Church of England parish church where people have worshipped God for 160 years, and still do, every week.

This is a living church. We continue to grow in Christ, building on and respecting the traditions of the past while looking to the future. We use a variety of forms of worship – from the ancient and beautiful prose of the Book of Common Prayer right through to modern language services with multimedia support. The faithful preaching of the Word, and the power of prayer are central to all our services.

We have a dedicated and skilful choir to support our worship. New members are always welcome. We occasionally put on Christian musical productions, and recitals on our Allen digital organ.

We have recently completed a major restoration project made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We have received a
Bronze Eco-church award

We are also a Fair Trade church, and often have a stall after services selling ethical goods.

The local community

Whether you enjoy a tramp across moor and mountain, a brisk game of bowls, singing yourself hoarse or just having a chat over a cuppa in good company, there’s something at St Paul’s for you. Talks on everything from Hedgehogs to Antarctica; practical support for the vital work of charities like Christian Aid; visiting neighbours in need; recycling waste paper; quizzes; dances; youth work; mowing the grass; you name it, we probably do it!

Why not come and join us? You’re bound to make new friends. Stay for coffee after the service and say hello!

Children are very welcome at all our services!

The Scout and Guide groups are great fun, too.

There’s no excuse for boredom in Norden!
