Our Vision Statement

Welcome to St Paul’s, we are located in the heart of Sale and seek to serve the people of Sale and enable and join in with the growing of God’s kingdom.

We are Anglicans -part of the Church of England and are a welcoming and inclusive community of people who aspire to follow Jesus’ words, ‘to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves’. We are keen to help people learn more about God’s great love for all and have undertaken to serve one another through faithfulness in prayer and active service in our local community.

As we are located next to the Bridgewater Canal with it’s well walked tow-path and local wildlife, we are keen to take seriously our duty to care for the world and its resources as part of our desire to engage in upholding the Anglican 5th Mark of Mission “…to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation”. We encourage groups and organisations to recycle, re-use and reduce their waste and to bear in mind the principles of L.O.A.F- Local, Organic, Animal-Friendly and Fairtrade products whenever it is possible to do so.

We are a member church of Churches Together in Sale.
