About St. Paul's

Welcome to St Paul's Darien!

 

St. Paul’s Church is an Episcopal Church in the Anglican Communion. St. Paul’s is a charismatic and evangelical community of believers who want to know Jesus  and to make Him known as the Christ. Our church is almost 60 years old and our story has been published internationally in Miracle in Darien

 

Please join us for one of our worship services in Darien, CT:

Sundays in June, July and August we have only one service at 9am (no Adult Education)

Tuesday Morning Worship (10:00am) Lunch (12:00pm)

 

The atmosphere is relaxed, our worship leaders are intent on pointing you to God, and our Bible-based messages are relevant to your daily life. Our ultimate goal is to help you grow deeper in your relationship with God.

 

Our hope is that you will come, connect, grow, and serve with us. We have ministries tailored to every member of our community – preschooler, student, parent, professional, and/or senior adult. From small groups, to youth group and Sunday School, to regular community events, we want you to find somewhere you fit. 

 

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  We look forward to getting to know you!

 

What Can I Expect?

 
The best way to get to know us is to attend one of our Sunday or Tuesday worship services. Here’s a breakdown of some things you can expect.


1. Greeters will welcome you at the door providing you with a bulletin and are available to answer any of your questions.  Children, pre-K to 5th grade start out in the service and leave, following the cross, to participate in Sunday School. Middle and High School students are encouraged to attend the service with parents.


2. Sunday and Tuesday worship services begin with an extended time of singing, praise, and worship – led by a band and/or a worship leader. Scripture readings, the sermon, corporate prayers, offering and Communion follow. For a basic outline of an Anglican service, see The Book of Common Prayer, pp 355-366. Or follow this link: http://bcponline.org/HE/he2.htm . We worship liturgically and we love the free movement of the Holy Spirit. Individuals are free to raise their arms in praise and adoration.

 

3. Hospitality time is a great way to meet the St. Paul’s community.  Please join us for coffee and refreshments between the morning services (10:00-10:30am) in the Parish Hall.

 

4. Prayer, Healing and Prophetic Ministry are also an important part of the worship services.  Prayer teams are always available during communion. The Tuesday service is a Prayer & Healing service, beginning at 10:00am. Prophetic ministry is offered following the 10:30am service on Sunday.

Beliefs

The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as "containing all things necessary to salvation," and as being the rule and ultimate standard of faith. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
 
The Apostles' Creed, as the baptismal symbol, and the Nicene Creed, as the sufficient statement of the Christian faith. (Romans 10:9)
 
The two sacraments ordained by Christ himself - Baptism and the Supper of the Lord - ministered with unfailing use of Christ's words of institution and of the elements ordained by him. (Matthew 26:26-29, 28:19-20)
 
The historic episcopate, locally adapted in the methods of its administration to the varying needs of the nations and peoples, called of God into the unity of His Church. (Matthew 16:16-19; Ephesians 4:11)
 
Cross.jpgThe Nicene Creed


We believe in one God,
    the Father, the Almighty,
    maker of heaven and earth,
    of all that is, seen and unseen.

 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
    the only Son of God,
    eternally begotten of the Father,
    God from God, Light from Light,
    true God from true God,
    begotten, not made,
    of one Being with the Father.
    Through him all things were made.
    For us and for our salvation
    he came down from heaven:
    by the power of the Holy Spirit
    he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
    and was made man.

 

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
     he suffered death and was buried.
     On the third day he rose again
     in accordance with the Scriptures;
     he ascended into heaven
     and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

 

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
     and his kingdom will have no end.

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, 
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
    With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
    He has spoken through the Prophets.
    We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
    We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
    We look for the resurrection of the dead,
    and the life of the world to come.

 

Amen.
