- FUTURE OF ST PAULS, STONEYCROFT On the 1st of December 2016 the parish of Stoneycroft, St Paul officially joined the parish of Stanley, St Anne creating a single parish. St Anne's church will become the parish church.
The building of St Pauls will then become redundant, and therefore not for use for worship within the Church of England. The Egyptian Coptic Church are proceeding with their lease of the building and it is hoped that shortly after the 1st December building works to make the building safe once more will begin.
It is hoped that this arrangement will not only see the continuation of spiritual flourishing of the parish of St Pauls as it joins with St Annes, it will also see the physical survival of a building, magnificent in structure but also complicated in design, a design which has sadly has been too much to cope with for the congregation members - all 25 of them, for too long.
In His love,
