St Paul's with St Mary's Wooburn

ABOUT US

our vision

  'To grow together in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ, sharing his truth and blessing'

Please click here to see our Vision Statement

Our church is a relaxed, friendly and growing Christian community. We do not take ourselves too seriously and enjoy each others company for both worship and fellowship.

We cherish the church traditions and place great value on liturgy, following the Lectionary each week, and singing a mixture of traditional hymns and more recent worship songs.

St. Paul’s has a stunningly rich heritage. For over one thousand years, this has been a holy place where people just like you have met with God. All the decorations in this church gently keep worship of the Almighty in focus and inspire proclamations of love for Him.  Pause for a moment. Be still. Sense the presence of the Holy Spirit. Feel the echoes of prayers said over the millennia. Experience Christ’s blessing.  While this is a very old building, our style and worship is very much for today’s times.

Weddings

If you want to marry in your local C of E church, you can visit www.achurchnearyou.com to find it.

However, we know that you might like to marry in a different church because it has significance for you through family or other special connections.

An engaged couple can now do just that if either of them can show just one of the following seven connections with the parish.

That one of you: was baptised in the parish concerned

  • was prepared for confirmation in the parish
  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months
  • has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months

or that one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months
  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish for a period of at least 6 months

or that one of your parents or grandparents:

  • was married in the parish

In all cases involving church services - ie going to normal church services, baptism, confirmation or marriage, this applies only to C of E services.

Even if you cannot demonstrate any of the above connections, we want to help you explore whether it may still be possible for you to marry in your special church.

Church law does not normally permit the marriage of divorced persons but in some circumstances this maybe considered.
