Welcome to St Paul’s

Welcome to St Paul’s

We are a lively Anglican church based in Bridge Street, Newport  

We’d love you to join us on a Sunday for a Holy Communion Service at 10:00 am at St Stephen’s Church in Pill, or for our informal, lively charismatic service at 6 pm, at St Paul’s in the city centre.

You are also most welcome at our various gatherings during the week, such as, Coffee, Cake and Chat, mid-week Communion, Prayer Time, or Baby and Toddler Group. To find out more check out our monthly calendar or give the office a call.

All are welcome, whether you are on your own or with your family, and no matter your life stage or circumstances.

Our mission is to ‘welcome people to meet Jesus’, and we’re committed to loving and serving those who live, work and socialise in the city centre and across our benefice.

Our Values

We have three core values, which are the foundation for our life together as a church:


Everything we do is centred on Jesus, motivated by his love for us and for his world, and following the example of his life, death and resurrection. The Bible points us towards Jesus, showing us how to be the people he has made us to be – we aim to know, love and live God’s word.


The Holy Spirit is our companion in everything we do, empowering and equipping us to live for Jesus and love others. In our worship and prayer life as a church, we offer the opportunity for people to be filled afresh with God’s love and power, offer prayer for healing, and invite one another to listen for God’s voice. This is always done gently and appropriately.


We believe that God loves Newport, and has called us to be a blessing to others. We aim to encourage every member of our church to love and serve those around them in their communities. We also serve the community together through activities, projects and presence – being there for those in need.

Our Team

St Paul’s has a Leadership Team who are responsible for the everyday running of the church, and a Church Council (PCC) who make the big decisions and prayerfully discern the way forward together. Meet our Leadership Team.
