do we stand for ?
To know Jesus and to make him known.
We at St Paul’s are a gathered community whose chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him for ever.
We seek to honour the Lord Jesus Christ in personal living, in congregational fellowship, and in outreach to the community.
Our calling is to be Bible-based, Christ-centered, Spirit-filled people of prayer, exercising good stewardship of our resources both human and material
St Paul’s is one of five United Reformed Churches in and around Harrogate, the others being Providence Dacre; Bilton Grange; West
Park Harrogate and Knaresborough. There are close links between the five churches, all of which belong to the Harrogate & Knaresborough Mission and Care Group, and joint evening services are held during the course of the year. St Paul’s also has close links with the two other churches in Victoria Avenue - West Park and Harrogate Baptist Church - and joint services are held at Easter and Christmas.
We are involved with the Town Centre Churches Together in
Harrogate (St Peter's Parish Church, St Robert's Roman Catholic Church,
Wesley Methodist Chapel, Harrogate Baptist Church, The Society of Friends and our neighbour West Park URC).
We also support the wider work of the church through, for
example, Traidcraft, Commitment for Life and Christian Aid.

Although our life together centres principally around worship there are many other activities taking place every week on the church premises. Full details can be found on this website.
The church doors are open every Wednesday, Friday and the First and Third Saturdays to welcome new friends and also to provide an opportunity for prayer and meditation.
