Welcome to St. Paul’s

Welcome to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Westbrook Connecticut. We are often described as “the small Church with a big heart”. We are a family sized church where visitors and newcomers are always welcomed. Like a family, we care for our members and friends and reach out beyond our walls to care for those in need in the wider Westbrook community. In all this we strive to follow the way of compassion and love shown us in the life Jesus Christ.

Our primary mission is to provide a sanctuary, a place of quiet retreat and safety in the midst of a busy world. We seek to do so by the deepening of spiritual insight and knowledge of God through explorations in the practice of ancient and contemporary forms of prayer and common worship, through the diligent search of the scriptures, and a common life of fellowship, conversation and service. Our worship is traditional yet inspiring. Strengthened in this way we seek to go forth into the world.

Our doors and hearts are open to welcome persons of all walks and conditions in life, believers, and those who doubt and question, who yet seek to explore the mystery of a life of faith. About 200 persons come to the church each week to participate in various support groups. Our small congregation actively reaches out into the wider community through the local food pantry and other activities.

We invite you to “come and see”!

Very sincerely,
Nihal de Lanerolle
Missional Priest
