About Us

St Paul's is part of the Yorkshire Synod of the United Reformed Church, which unites the traditions of Presbyterians, Congregationalists and Churches of Christ in the United Kingdom.

Our Sunday service of Worship starts at 10.30.

Although most of the congregation of around 280 live in Harrogate itself, St Paul’s also gathers people from Knaresborough, Wetherby, Leeds, York and the surrounding villages. Like any family we have a good age mix with a lively Junior Church and Youth Group, together with a full range of Scouting and Girl Guide units.

We want to be a Bible-based, Christ-centred, Spirit-filled people of prayer, glorifying and enjoying God in worship and daily living. We aim to know Jesus and to make him known. St Paul’s is heavily involved in Churches Together in Harrogate, our fellow URC congregations in the locality and in the world development work of Commitment for Life and Christian Aid. We are a Fair Trade Church. St Paul’s supports the work of the new venture in Harrogate known as The Hub, a new joint venture of the town churches to provide support for people who are finding life difficult. St Paul’s also actively works with Churches Together in Harrogate and our fellow URC congregations in the locality. The world development work of Commitment For Life and Christian Aid are high priorities for us.

The church and all of our rooms are wheelchair accessible. There is a T-Loop system for those with impaired hearing, and we have a well-appointed crèche to which children and babies are welcome.

Parade Service

Last Sunday was our Parade Service when our Rainbows, Brownies and Guides together with our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts worshipped with us. We thought about what was fake and how Jesus is the real deal. It was good also to catch up on Scouting and Guiding news and to encourage our young people and their leaders. Encouragement, or 'paraclesis', is the theme of the new book of the Bible we are studying - the Letter to the Hebrews. This coming Sunday we continue with Hebrews as we are encouraged to stick with Jesus, because he is worth it.
