About Us

Horizons of Hope and Joy

We are a Christian community of faith in the Anglican tradition which seeks to

  • worship God in spirit and truth;
  • celebrate his unconditional love for us in Jesus Christ;
  • serve God in each other and in those around
  • join God in his passionate commitment to our world and to all who live in it, seeking to heal, to teach, to restore, to inspire and to grow.

In our parish, worship, ministry and mission form the triad of our pastoral plan.

On behalf of the parish, I sincerely welcome you to this webpage and ask you to stay as long as you like, send us your prayer requests, ring me if you need any assistance with celebrating weddings, baptism, or funerals, or need a listening ear or any other matter that may be of your interest. Don’t leave without offering a prayer for all of us who call St. Paul’s our spiritual home. We would love to see you worship with us one day and be assured of our prayers for God’s blessings upon you and all those you love.

The Lord be with you, peace be with your spirit!

Fr. Lynton Wade (Locum).

Alertness vs. Unawareness

“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mark 14:38)

 

This means being aware of that which is taking place around me so I can have the right response to it.
