St Paul's Church is set in the tree-lined suburbs of the London Borough of Bromley. It is surrounded by a variety of properties with many residents being daily commuters to London.

We are a Church with people of all ages and backgrounds. We aim to encourage one another to grow in our Christian faith. We try to share the Good News of Jesus and provide a place where people can find peace and healing.

The Church is part of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Rochester and is a member of Churches Together in Beckenham, an ecumenical group linking churches in the local area.
