Seacombe Parish

From the vicar


Welcome to St. Paul's Church, Seacombe Parish, a vibrant and welcoming community in the heart of Wallasey. Our church, located on Church Crescent, overlooks the famous Seacombe ferry terminal, connecting us to Birkenhead and Liverpool in a historic triangle of service across the River Mersey.


Founded in the mid-19th century, St. Paul's has a rich history intertwined with the development of Seacombe. The church was consecrated on October 12, 1847, and designed by Liverpool architect John Hay in the Gothic Revival style. Our striking sandstone structure with a spire that serves as a maritime landmark has been a spiritual beacon for generations. Despite damage during World War II, the church has been lovingly restored, with the spire undergoing a significant reconstruction in 2013-14 to preserve its historic silhouette.


St. Paul's is not just a place of worship but a hub of community life. We host a variety of events, from our lively Sunday services to community support initiatives such as our social supermarket and foodbank. The church grounds feature beautifully maintained lawns, a remembrance garden, and spaces dedicated to the memory of past congregants, fostering a sense of continuity and community.


Our mission is to serve God and the community with love and dedication, upholding the Church of England's robust safeguarding policies to ensure a safe environment for all. We welcome everyone to join us in worship, fellowship, and community service.


Thank you for being part of our journey. We look forward to seeing you at St. Paul's.


Blessings to you
