Where the spirit of the Lord is all around you

Home Services History Contact Us Outreach What's On About Us

Our centuries-old parish church of St Paul, nestling under Monks’ Hill and its landmark steps at Kewstoke, Weston-super-Mare, is and always has been at the heart of this community.

Although the parish and this part of north Somerset is rich in history, with 13th-Century Woodspring Priory viewed from the approaches to St Paul’s, the church today is very much alive, providing a beacon of worship for all and hub for the spreading of the Christian faith.

The parish of St Paul’s stretches over Worlebury Hill to the edge of Weston town, to the east embracing part of Worle and to Sand Bay and the Severn Sea to the west.


Our church family is drawn from across this area and from further afield – worshippers who are inspired by the special atmosphere of the church and its surroundings, by the friendliness of the people they meet and pray with, and the range of services they find here.

Our Vicar is the Reverend Geoff Eales, who is also the Vicar of St Peter’s at Milton, and together we are members of the wider Church of England family through the Deanery of Locking and the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

Why not come and join us? There is a welcome for everyone, whether a long-time resident of the area, a newcomer, or perhaps just a visitor to this beautiful part of the West Country.

Sunday services

There is much to experience. Of course our Sunday services are core to church life and marriages, baptisms and funerals take place during the year.

House groups meet for further Christian study as well, and there are coffee mornings to enjoy, charity-raising events such as craft fairs, beetle drives, fun auctions, occasional concerts and a holiday club for youngsters.

Please explore the other pages of our website to discover the full range of activities here and learn more about the key people who support our church life at St Paul’s.

Holiday Club offers

learning and laughter

Youngsters from local schools joined together in joy and laughter as they discovered more about the Bible at St Paul’s annual summer Holiday Club.

They experienced new friendships, fun and learning in a celebration of young people, organised by church members. ‘Teambuilding’ was the keynote, with craftwork, games, songs and prayer combining to illustrate, and help young people understand, the many choices facing them on the journey to becoming members of God’s Team.

Barn dancers step out to boost funds

Take your partners, turn around, two steps forward, four to side, then stamp the ground.

Spacious Kewstoke village hall echoed to a lively hoedown as nearly 100 people from near and far gathered to raise funds for the church - and have fun, many in country and western gear.

The three-hour, Saturday evening event, organised by Colin Devereux and including an impressive hog roast and prize competition, turned out to be a great social success with several expressing hope for a repeat performance next year.

The music was provided by Maurice Wintle and Penny Plowden of Life of Riley.
