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.

Our Children and Family Worker

We are very pleased that Kim Curle, our Children and Family Worker, is helping us to strengthen and further develop our work with children and families.  She joined us in February (2014), and is seen here with her husband, John, and our Vicar, Revd Vince Short, following a special service of welcome, which included her licensing by the Bishop of Tonbridge.
