SERVICES & WEEKLY ACTIVITIES
As the oldest Anglican Church in Queensland feel free to pop in and soak up some of the atmosphere of a building that's seen continuous worship since before Queensland was born. Light a candle or say a prayer, and be assured that our clergy are on hand to talk if you need any help.
BECOME A PART OF OUR FAMILY
All are welcome to join us at any of our services in worshiping our Lord and giving thanks and praise to God, as well as being spiritually nourished to partake in God's mission.
At St Paul's we love getting out and about and meeting people. If you, or someone you know, would like a pastoral visit, or someone to have a chat with, contact our office and one of our team members will be more than happy to come and visit.

Pastoral care offers emotional and spiritual support to people in their times of pain, loss and anxiety, and their triumphs, joys and victories.

Baptism celebrates a new beginning as a member of Christ's body, the Church. To seek Baptism for a child or an adult is to say that you want to give them the gift of being part of God's family and to have God involved in their life. Before organising a Baptism you will need to think about who you want to have as sponsors or godparents. During the service Godparents, who they themselves must be baptised, make a promise to God that the child will be brought up as a Christian. Due to the high demand for Baptisms at the Church, arrangements usually need to be made at least 2-3 months in advance.

Confirmation is a sacrament, which confers the gifts of the Holy Spirit (grace, strength, and courage) upon the recipient, who must have first have been baptised. This sacrament is called Confirmation because the faith given in Baptism is now confirmed to strengthen one's relationship with God. Sometimes, those who benefit from Confirmation are referred to as soldiers of Christ. Confirmation means accepting responsibility for your faith and destiny.

St Paul's is a beautiful sacred space where a couple can exchange their vows to one another in the presence of family and friends and receive God's blessing on their marriage. St Paul's is a beautiful Cathedral style Church and is situated centrally in the Ipswich CBD. As the oldest Anglican Church in Queensland, the rich history of St Paul's extends far beyond the walls of the church itself. With its beautiful stained glass windows, its lofty ceilings and its tall, delicately proportioned columns is the perfect setting for the creation of beautiful memories and gorgeous photographs.

A Christian funeral marks the ending of a human life, and places this in the context of God's loving presence with us as we grieve. In addition, it proclaims the Christian hope in life after death through Jesus being raised from the dead. A funeral gives people the opportunity to give thanks for a person's life and remember who they were for those who knew them. St Paul's offer's an Anglican funeral service that can take place in a church, a private home, a funeral home, or at the chapel in the Crematorium.
