The Parish Church of St Paul is at the heart of the community; it is our vision to reach out and serve the people of Drighlington and beyond,  to share God’s love with others and to welcome people in.

Our mission caters for all ages and styles and with the many different groups and activities that take place, to the fellowship at our weekly Wednesday Open Church afternoon, we really believe St Paul's offer something for everyone.

We want to be a church where people of all ages feel valued and can grow in faith, worship and gifts – we look forward to welcoming you soon!

Drighlington St Paul’s is a Christian community in the Anglican tradition which serves Drighlington in South Leeds, a village mentioned in the Domesday Book where it is described as "Dreslintone"; today Drighlington has a population of about 6,500. The Church’s mission statement, which was drawn up in 2008 by the PCC and congregation, is very short but describes our purpose: To Serve God in our Community.

St Paul’s is described by everyone as welcoming and lively. In every sense it is a ‘people’s church’. There are activities and groups which meet spiritual and social needs. There are facilities which can be used by the community. There is something for all ages and all levels of experience.
