Outreach

Spreading the Word; broadening horizons

In line with the Diocesan Strategy ‘Living the Story, Telling the Story’, St Paul’s seeks to be a missional church, reaching out into our local community and beyond.

In 2017, church members linked with other parish organisations at the annual village fete, combining to stage a day of fun events that unfolded throughout the day.

The programme varies from year to year but enjoyment is the theme and activities range from games, books and gardening stalls to classic car displays and tea and cakes on the lawn.

Above: Anyone for tea and cakes? Church ladies offer service with a smile.

The Kewstoke Cubs and Scouts are encouraged to be part of the St Paul’s family and participate in various activities throughout the year.

Worlebury Church of England and Kewstoke Schools

St Paul’s is privileged to have important links with our two local primary schools and church members play a significant role in their activities.

Children take a keen interest in the church where they are involved in special services and carry out a range of projects that help them gain a greater knowledge of Christianity and its place in the world. Worship in the schools is led by members of the church.

Choir visit

Some recent church activities have also included visiting Kewstoke’s Cygnet Hospital by the choir, providing patients and staff there with an enjoyable programme of music and relaxation.

Social/ fundraising

An important part of our fellowship and outreach at St Paul’s are the social and fund-raising events that are open to all. See What’s On and About Us sections for more information.
