Holy Communion at St Paul's Tadley

First and Fourth Sundays 9am

This is a great way to start your Sunday and is normally finished by 9:30 am leaving you the rest of the day free.  This is a fantastic opportunity to pray for friends and family and be fed in word and sacrament as you begin a new week.

Cafe Worship

First Sunday 10.15am

A new café style service at St. Paul’s led by Steve which will vary between morning worship and Holy Communion, but always a time of eating together with worship, discussion and fellowship. Join us from 10:15 on the 1st Sunday of every month for café worship.


Sunday Worship at St Paul's Tadley

Sundays 10.15am

Every Sunday (except 2nd in the month when we have Messy Church at 10am), we have a great family-oriented, accessible service for all with music by our band.  

There is also an amazing children’s group in the hall from 10:15 am with Messy Church-style stories and crafts. So the kids can have fun, while you enjoy the service. 

Good tea, coffee, and cake are served after the service.

Do join Cathy for Holy Communion every Wednesday at St. Luke’s at 10 am.  Friendly, relaxed communion for those who need a bit of space with God in the week. Pop your head in the door and make yourself at home. 


April - the month ahead

Message from Rev Steve McKay

Rector - Benefice of Tadley with Pamber Heath and Silchester

This month we begin the season of Annual Meetings, an important moment in the church calendar. These meetings allow us to take stock of all the ways God has blessed us over the last year. For example, the many thousands who came to our Coronation Party on The Green, the completion of St. Mary’s Building Project and the arrival of Rev Chris, Rev Karen and Virge Routledge to name just three!

These meetings also allow us to look forward with hope and optimism of what God will do over the next year as well as appointing our new church councils. Christ calls us to unity, yet we will never agree on everything. But the role of our PCCs is to consider what ++Justin describes as good disagreement. Together PCC members represent the whole church, holding to the vision of the ministry and mission of the parish for the good of the community.

In AD 325 Emperor Constantine convened the Council of Nicaea. More than 300 bishops came from all over the Christian world to debate the nature of the Holy Trinity. Arius, from Egypt, was teaching that Jesus the Son was not equal to God the Father – it was one of the early church's most intense theological questions. He forcefully argued his position at length. As Arius continued, Bishop Nicholas became more and more agitated. Finally, he could no longer bear it. The outraged Nicholas got up, crossed the room, and slapped Arius across the face!

The bishops were shocked. It was unbelievable that a bishop would lose control and be so hot headed in such a solemn assembly. They brought Nicholas to Emperor Constantine. He agreed that the bishops should strip Nicholas of his bishop's garments, chain him and throw him into jail. That would keep Nicholas away from the meeting... Or so they thought.

Nicholas was ashamed and prayed for forgiveness, though he did not waver in his belief. He claims that during the night, Jesus appeared, asking, “Why are you in jail?" "Because of my love for you," Nicholas replied. When the jailer came in the morning, he found the chains loose on the floor and Nicholas dressed in bishop's robes, quietly reading the Bible. Nicholas was then fully reinstated as a Bishop and continued to argue his point, and against the view shared by Arius, until the Council of Nicaea agreed with him. The work of the Council produced the Nicene Creed which to this day we recite each Sunday.

I think what this story shows (apart from the church being formed by a bunch of misfits who often disagreed with each other) is that being true to the community you represent is costly, but essential to the future of the church. I do hope you can make our annual meetings and if God is prompting you to explore becoming a Church Warden or trustee of one of our parishes, do speak with Steve.


The Mission of our Churches

Faith.  Love.  Community.

Our churches are gatherings of people from Tadley, Pamber Heath and beyond that meet together to thank God for His love, encourage one another in faith and support each other in sharing God's love with our neighbours.

Our vision is to love both our God and neighbours. St Paul helps us to understand the nature of this love; patient, kind, without envy, free, selfless, trusting, hoping, truthful, and perservering.

We welcome everybody, regardless of your history, beliefs or lifestyle to join us in the pursuit of God and the common good.

Church Interior

Three Buildings ... One Church

The church is the people; our buildings are great places to meet each other, celebrate special occasions or just drop in to pray. People have laughed and loved, wept and prayed in these buildings for over 800 years.

St Paul's

St Paul's is situated on The Green, Tadley.  We are a modern, diverse, family church, which blends traditional and new worship and relevant teaching.


St Peter's

St Peter's, also called Tadley Old Church, is the 12th Century Parish Church of Tadley. St Peters, located next to Tadley Cemetery, is used for special occasions. PLEASE NOTE:  St Peter's is undergoing significant roof repairs and is not available for public use at the current time.


St Luke's

St Luke's is located in Pamber Heath. We are a growing all age friendly congregation, who run a variety of activities for young people, new mums and older people.

St Paul's and St Luke's buildings are fully accessible. We regret that, due to its age and location, St Peter's is not wheelchair accessible, and is not equipped with a hearing loop.
