World Church


At St Paul's church we support a number of World Church partners (listed below), as well as encouraging all members of the church to be involved with our partners or other organisations working around the world. Communication to the church family is through small groups, prayer requests, news, shared lunches and special services.


Monthly World Church newsletters are sent to those registered on the St Paul's website. This is our current newsletter, and previous copies are available from this link

The team

World church is led by Karen Wheatley, and includes Annabel Blanch, Charlotte Chaplin, Sally Hulbert, Jonathan Papworth, Elizabeth Shaw and Sue Swain-Fossey. There is a short video from a few years ago about us, so you can hear about our personal vision for being part of this team. To help us be consistent and transparent in how we make decisions and apply funding, we have written a terms of reference. This is available for you to download.

Nearly everybody on the team has been involved in overseas missionary or support work, and we know how it can be a life-changing experience. We therefore encourage everyone to become actively involved in one way or another. 

There are a number of missionaries that we support or have supported in the past, and more details for some of them can be found by clicking on the links below.
