We are a friendly and welcoming church in the heart of Holgate in York.

 We have members of all ages at St Paul’s, some who have been walking together with Jesus for decades, others who are just dipping their toes in the water. Our desire is to continue walking the path of faith together, seeking God’s guidance as we do and helping each other along the way.

10:30am Sunday Service Resumes

I am delighted to let you know that following the Government announcement on Monday 22 February, and the consistently lowering level of infections in York, St Paul’s is once again open for face-to-face services.  The services will still need to follow the same safety guidelines that were in place prior to when we closed, including  booking in advance through the Office.  However, I have hope that by the summer we can meet in a more normal way, which will be a moment of great joy and celebration.

We recognise that the Morning Service in these unusual times will not suit all so we will continue to offer our online YouTube service alongside our in person worship.
