“Making Jesus known – by loving God, becoming like Jesus, and being led by the Spirit”

We are a lively and growing Evangelical Anglican Church of all ages in Sherborne, Dorset. Since 2006 our main Sunday service has been held at The Gryphon School but we also run a wide range of activities for young and old during the week, many at our church building in St Paul’s Close.

We are part of the Sherborne Team Ministry together with Sherborne Abbey, St. Mary Magdalene (Castleton), St. James (Longburton), and St. Martin (Lillington).

We believe that faith isn’t just for Sundays and that God is interested in, and wants to be involved in, the whole of our lives.

St Paul’s Church: not just a building, not just meetings, not just community clubs BUT a group of people who’ve discovered that God loves them with no strings attached, has a purpose for their lives, and is a faithful friend through the ups and downs of life.

We believe it’s possible to have a life-transforming relationship with Jesus, the son of God, raised from the dead. We want to work out together what it means to follow Jesus in the 21st century, to discover how to live life to the full as God intended, and to know that we can find help, healing and hope in following Jesus.


You would be very welcome to join us for worship. We meet at The Gryphon School every Sunday at 10:30am. On the third Sunday of the month we also meet at our church building at 9am for a more traditional service.


We want to teach the children that God loves them and that Jesus has died and risen again for them. There are groups for ages 0-14 on Sunday mornings and at other times during the week. All helpers have DBS certificates and safeguarding training.


Life Groups are central to the vision of St. Paul’s. These are small groups of people meeting together to live out the life of God through sharing in bible study and prayer, and through mutual support and encouragement.
