St Paul's with St Mary's Wooburn

  Welcome to St Paul’s with   St Mary’s Wooburn

Following the announcement by Buckingham Palace that Her Majesty the Queen has died. The Bishop of Oxford has issued the following statement.
 

Her Majesty the Queen has been a cherished presence in all of our lives and for the whole of our lives. She has been our example and a rock for the nation and commonwealth. Her devoted service has given stability to the nation throughout this Elizabethan age. Her deep, personal Christian faith has been an inspiration to many, including me.

The whole nation will be united in mourning for our beloved Queen in the coming days. We will need time to grieve and to share our grief with others. We pray at this time for the Queen’s family and especially for Charles as he prepares to become King. This will be a season for deep reflection in the life of our nation as we look back in thanksgiving and forward in hope. 

This United Kingdom has deep foundations in Christian faith. A key part of our faith is the distinctive hope of resurrection from the dead: that our life in Christ endures beyond death and for eternity. As we grieve and pray, we also look forward together in hope to that new and eternal life with God. 

We have prayed through all of our lives: God save the Queen. We now entrust Her Majesty to her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and commit ourselves afresh to his service and to God’s eternal kingdom. 


 

Welcome to the St. Paul's with St. Mary's website. The two churches work together for the whole community under the same ministry team.Whoever you are, wherever you are from, whatever your background you are welcome.

Our church is very friendly and truly multi-generational.  There is always something happening for children on a Sunday but it varies throughout the month, as planned by the leaders of what we call Sunday Club.  In practice what that looks like is 1st Sunday of the month the children start in our adjoining hall and then come and join the rest of the congregation in time for communion.  On the 2nd Sunday of the month we're all in together for a non-communion interactive all age service.  3rd Sunday sees the children in church gathered around a table where they do art activities, and the fourth Sunday they start in church with us before they go out to their group and we get into a more discussion based approach to the sermon before going over to join them in the hall.

Sunday worship music is usually led by a band but we do also have organists for when we want something a little more traditional, and are looking at developing other more contemplative services.  We also run Forest Church, which is always outside and is quiet and reflective, so we're trying to take a very inclusive look at how we gather together in order to make sure a wide range of people's needs are met.  As you can see from above, children and families are a priority for us.
