St Paul’s East Ham

A local church
bringing the love of jesus
to our wonderful community

Jesus asked, “What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I
compare it with?
It is like this. A man takes a mustard seed and plants it in his field.
The plant grows and becomes a tree, and the birds make their nests
in its branches.”
Luke 13:18-19

Who we are…

We are a Church of England worshipping community called to follow Jesus seeking to bring God’s transforming love to the people of East Ham – and beyond

What we do…

Sustain a place of welcome

  • Opening our doors to every member of our vibrant community
  • Gathering for worship and prayer, Bible teaching and discipleship
  • Celebrating milestones, people, all that is good about life
  • Providing a safe place where people belong and can thrive spiritually
  • Offering opportunities for learning and wellbeing

Live out our faith

  • Sharing good news. We believe Jesus died for our sins and showed us the amazing love of God
  • Living life to the full. Jesus is alive, he rose from the dead and this changed everything
  • Growing spiritually. God has poured out his spirit on the Church. We seek to find out what God is already doing in our community and join in joyfully, growing in the gifts and fruit of the Spirit
  • Nurturing faith and equipping people to be 24/7 Christians
  • Journeying together. Jesus calls us to follow him on a journey our whole lives. Wherever someone is on their faith journey, we want to support and encourage them

Involve everyone and partner with others in the mission of God

  • Rolling up our sleeves – present and engaged in the needs of our community
  • Getting stuck in – when times are tough, for the long haul
  • Real church that relates to the mess and muddle of life
  • Working with others –  within our community, beyond our parish and as part of the worldwide church

Connected to our past, engaged in our present, journeying into the future
