Sunday services as normal

Despite the recent extreme weather, the three services will go ahead in St Paul’s as normal tomorrow, Sunday March 4th.  See right-hand corner of this website for details. But unfortunately we have had to defer the visit of our planned guest speaker at the 10.30am service, Barbara O’Connell, CEO of Acquired Brain Injury Ireland, so we will launch our 150th anniversary community project on another Sunday.
