We hold Divine Service with Holy Communion every Sunday at 9:30 AM. At St. Paul's we believe that Christians worship to receive from God the blessings He desires to give us. So, worship is more about what God is giving to us than what we are giving to God. For millennia the Church has followed a set pattern of worship to emphasize God's gift of the forgiveness of sins in Jesus Christ.
At St. Paul's we continue to honour that good and God-pleasing pattern. In the Holy Liturgy we confess our need for forgiveness to God, and hear Him proclaim that we are forgiven for Jesus' sake. We hear God's Word read from the Old Testament and the New Testament. Our pastor preaches God's condemnation of sin and the gift of His grace in Christ. The Lord's Supper, Jesus' last will and testament to His people, is offered at every Sunday service.
All members in good standing of our Church (The Evangelical Lutheran Church of England) or a sister Lutheran Church we are in fellowship with are invited to receive Holy Communion when visiting our church. Non-Lutherans are welcome to come forward for a blessing. Please speak to our pastor before the service if you would like to receive Communion.

Since the 16th Century the Lutheran Church has been known for its rich musical heritage (for instance, JS Bach was a Lutheran). If you would like to know more about our Lutheran musical heritage please click here.
