St. Paul’s is a vibrant parish family that strives first and foremost to follow Christ. We are a large, downtown congregation in Winston-Salem, North Carolina with a long history of moving worship,strong Christian formation and seeking to serve Christ in others. We are Episcopalians, members of the worldwide Anglican Communion of Christians whose customs and understandings of the Christian way developed from the Church of England. We are guided by scripture, tradition and reason. Worship is central to our life together and we gather each week at the table to praise and be fed by the gifts of God. St Paul’s offers both sanctuary and challenge – it is a church grounded in the grace of God that seeks to bring God’s love and light into the world.
Our Parish Mission Statement captures our commitment to be “… a Christian community dedicated to lifelong spiritual development and learning in the Anglican tradition:
We seek to worship God through our liturgy, art, music, and life; to bring people to unity with God and each other; to bear witness to the good news of Jesus Christ through the loving, healing, and welcoming power of the Holy Spirit; and to minister daily in our neighborhoods, region and world.”
We hope you will find here the Good News of God in Christ.
