“Loving as Jesus loves. Praying as he prays, and Growing in Christ to make him known”
St Paul Chippenham; St Peter Langley Burrell; St Nicholas Hardenhuish
BREAKING NEWS - The DCC has voted unanimously in favour of accepting a tender to remove the pews and fit a new wooden floor and heating system! Please note the church will be closed from Boxing Day until the end of May 2022. Services during this period will be held in the Church Hall and other Church buildings in the Parish as well as broadcast live on our Facebook page.
Our church buildings are open for Sunday morning worship -
Here at St Pauls, our Sunday Morning Services continue to be streamed on our Facebook and YouTube pages, from our building at 10am each Sunday. We follow guidance as it is given and updated and of course pray for our community, country and world as we continue to live with this time of pandemic. It would be wonderful to see and meet you if you are searching or have been linking with us online. It will also be good to welcome back regular worshippers.
As Christians, we are to be mindful of our calling to love and care for each other. So, despite all legal restrictions on indoor corporate worship being lifted, we remain cautious, act as such, and are in no rush to change things for the sake of the whole community. During our worship time we would ask you:
To consider continuing wearing masks for now please. Church is an enclosed space, and even when doors are left open does not provide enough ventilation.
We can sing together, but please do so from behind your mask.
Sanitising stations and some social distancing signage will remain in our church buildings for now to ensure we are reminded of the need for sensibility.
If there is anything you would like to chat about or want prayer for, or anything else we as a church community can do for or offer you, then please contact one of us.
God Bless You.

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen
