St Paul’s was built in the late 19th century as the town of Llandudno expanded. Built to serve the large numbers of tourists coming to the area at the time (who couldn’t be accommodated at St Hilary's church nearby) it's also known as Llandudno’s “cathedral” because of its huge size
St Paul's Fellowship
The St Paul's Fellowship meets regularly on Monday afternoons in the church hall, next door to St Paul's Church.
Meetings range from speakers on a variety of topics to social activities and copious quantities of cake!
All are welcome to join us for the meetings
There's a strange blank wall above the side entrance door, where the church should have been even bigger! A huge spire was also planned, but never built. The pillars in the main part of the church are made from fossil-rich marble – you can see the outlines of tiny creatures in the polished black stone.
St Paul's has always had a strong musical tradition, and it's important to us to help the next generation of musicians.
We do this by providing choral scholarships for young singers aged 15-35, who receive a bursary to fund music lessons in return for singing at our services.
We also work with Bangor University School of Music to provide opportunities for young conductors.
We are grateful to The Ouseley Church Music Trust for their support for our choral scholarships.
St Paul's Church Choir is one of the few traditional Anglican four part choirs left in North Wales. We sing at the 9.45am holy communion service on Sunday morning throughout the year, and at other services and events such as our annual "Darkness into Light" advent carol service.
We always welcome new people to join us. You don’t need to be able to read music to join, just willing to sing to the best of your ability. There’s no obligation to sing with us every week, just to come when you can.
Choir practice is early on Thursday evening, except during August.
Can You Help? - Yes!
Thank you for visiting our website, and for taking an interest in what we do.
If you're close by, even just for a week-end trip, please come and join us in worship.
Our music making flows in the centuries-old tradition of Anglican church music, music that lives most truly when it fills its natural place in living, faithful worship.
Many friends who can't be with us in person join us online.
Our Sunday morning services are broadcast live on the social media site Facebook. We go live just before 9.45 am each week, and the service stays online afterwards so you can watch it again or catch it later. Click here to go to our Facebook page and see more.
Please pray for us; hold us gently in your thoughts as we work to keep music flowing in our worship.
Music, organ maintenance and keeping the church open all cost money as well as goodwill and hard work... so we welcome thankfully any donations you can make to help our work.
