The Jesus Movement is about the journey we share with a world desperate to see examples of the love of God lived out in each one of us to empower compassion and mercy for all people in all places”              Bishop Michael Curry

Most of us have a very deep spiritual need to be part of something greater than ourselves. Community makes this possible. Unfortunately, in our society the focus is on the individual – anybody supposedly can get anywhere they want if they work hard enough. “Couldn’t make it? Your problem not ours…” Community often is marginalized because it’s a threat to the powerful – as was the original Jesus Movement.

St Paul’s provides a spiritual alternative – a community based on love. It’s a diverse community with no religious admission tests. There you can find support when you need it – and also the opportunity to proved support to sisters and brothers in their need.

Welcome to our website. Look around, comments always are appreciated. If you can, come and visit, see the community in action! A high ceilinged stone church is hard to heat so cold weather services are held in the community room. A full breakfast is shared by visitors and everyone in the community on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.
